MicroWorld eScan MWAGENT.EXE security bypass
|escan-mwagent-security-bypass (34009)||Medium Risk|
MicroWorld eScan could allow a local attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by a missing authentication check in the MicroWorld Agent service (MWAGENT.EXE). By sending various commands on TCP port 2222, a local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information, modify settings and execute arbitrary commands on the system with SYSTEM level privileges.
Upgrade to the latest version of eScan (Beta 3 or later), available from the MicroWorld Web site. The stable release will be available ASAP. See References.
