Windows 7: McAfee Security Bulletin

03 Dec 2010   #1

Systems 1 and 2: Windows 7 Enterprise x64, Win 8 Developer
McAfee Security Bulletin

McAfee is aware of a publicly disclosed security issue that may affect VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) version 8.5i and prior. We are investigating the claims and will update this KB with additional details when they are available. We will be publishing a hotfix for this issue as soon as we are certain the fix closes all avenues of attack. This hotfix will mitigate the issue in affected configurations.

This bulletin and patch cover a potential code execution issue discovered in McAfee’s virus scanning products. If successfully attacked, this could result in an attacker causing attacker supplied code to execute in the context of the antivirus engine.

VSE 8.7i and beyond are not affected by this issue and are readily available immediately. Upgrading to the newest version effectively closes this issue completely.

Additionally, exploitation of this issue requires a user to be actively engaged. It requires intentionally scanning unknown documents hosted on remote shares. McAfee recommends that you not do this until the problem is solved.
