A vulnerability has been reported in Symantec Enterprise Security Manager (ESM), which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The problem is that the ESM agent remote upgrade interface does not authenticate the source of remote upgrade requests. This can be exploited to e.g. deploy a malicious program to a vulnerable system via a specially crafted ESM remote upgrade request.
All versions of ESM are reportedly affected, with the exception of ESM agents running on the following platforms since they do not support remote upgrade:
* NetWare 6.0
* NetWare 6.5
* OS/400 V5R2
* OS/400 V5R3
* OpenVMS AXP 7.2
* OpenVMS AXP 7.3
