Where:

From remote

Impact:

System access

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


A vulnerability has been reported in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an input validation error within the fw_charts.php file of the reporting module, which can be exploited to overwrite arbitrary files on the server and e.g. execute arbitrary PHP code.

According to the vendor, successful exploitation requires that the Symantec Endpoint Protection client is installed and authenticated to the target Symantec Endpoint Protection server.

NOTE: Reportedly, this can also be exploited without proper authentication.


Solution:
Upgrade to Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 RU6 MP2.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Andrea Micalizzi aka rGod via ZDI

Well, I suppose that admitting that this one works without authentication ,for a security vendor, is very embarassing. Nonetheless it works like described by zdi, without prior authentication ... And... CVE 2010-0112 also works without prior authentication... this means: authentication is bypassed because no authentication is performed. Like described by zdi.

I think we agree about what authentication is, right ... ? : )
