Kingsoft WebShield KAVSafe.sys privilege escalation
|webshield-kavsafe-privilege-escalation (58780)||High Risk|
Kingsoft WebShield could allow a local attacker to gain elevated privileges on the system, caused by an error in the KAVSafe.sys driver. By sending a specially-crafted 830020D4h IOCTL request, a local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to corrupt kernel memory and execute arbitrary code on the system with SYSTEM level privileges.
Upgrade to the latest version of WebShield (2010.5.21.727 or later), available from the Kingsoft Web site. See References.
