Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in various eScan products, which may be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the MicroWorld Agent service (MWAGENT.EXE) when decrypting received commands. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long command sent to the service (default port 2222/tcp).
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 9.0.715.1. Other versions may also be affected.
