Impact:

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


3APA3A has discovered a security issue in Panda Platinum Internet Security, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges.

The problem is caused due to the application setting insecure default permissions (grants "Everyone" group "Full Control") on the "Panda Platinum 2006 Internet Security" / "Panda Platinum 2007 Internet Security" directory and all child objects. This can be exploited to remove, manipulate, and replace any of the application's files.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.

It has also been reported that the spam filtering can be managed via the web interface listening on localhost on port 6083/tcp.

The security issue has been confirmed in Panda Platinum 2007 Internet Security 11.00.00 and has also been reported in Panda Platinum 2006 Internet Security 10.02.01. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to the latest signatures and ensure that TruPrevent(tm) is enabled (default setting).
