RSA Authentication Agent and RSA Authentication Client security bypass
|rsa-authentication-security-bypass (78802)||Medium Risk|
RSA Authentication Agent and RSA Authentication Client could allow a remote authenticated attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by an error in the authentication functionality. If an unspecified configuration exists, an attacker could bypass the two-factor authentication step and establish a login session using only their Windows credentials to a remote host.
Refer to ESA-2012-037 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
