A vulnerability has been reported in Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 and Symantec System Recovery 2011, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the applications loading libraries (e.g. imapi.dll) via the "Granular Restore Option" and "Recovery Point Browser" directories in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load an arbitrary library by tricking a user into opening an specially crafted file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.
The vulnerability is reported in the following products and versions:
* Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 prior to SP5
* Symantec System Recovery 2011 prior to SP2
