Edi Strosar has reported a security issue in multiple eScan products, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges.
The problem is caused due to insecure default file permissions being set on the installation directory. This can be exploited to gain escalated privileges by placing malicious files or replacing e.g certain DLL files in the directory.
The security issue is confirmed in eScan Internet Security version 9.0.722.1, eScan Virus Control version 9.0.722.1, and eScan Anti-Virus 9.0.722.1, and is also reported in eScan Professional version 9.0.x, eScan Workstation Server version 9.0.x, eScan Internet Security Suite version 9.0.x, and eScan Web and Mail Filter version 9.0.x. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Grant only trusted users access to the affected system.
