SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1032616
CVE Reference:   CVE-2014-9227, CVE-2014-9228, CVE-2014-9229   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jun 18 2015
Impact:   Denial of service via local system, Execution of arbitrary code via local system, Modification of system information, Modification of user information, Root access via local system
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 12.1.5 and prior
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Symantec Endpoint Protection. A local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system. A local user can cause denial of service conditions on the target system. A remote authenticated user can inject SQL commands.

A local user can place a specially crafted DLL in certain directories. Then, when the target user loads a specially crafted file from an alternate file location or network share, the DLL will be executed with System privileges [CVE-2014-9227].

Mike Czumak (@SecuritySift) reported this vulnerability.

A local user can submit a specially crafted formatted call to trigger a deadlock condition in 'sysplant.sys' and prevent the windows system from fully shutting down [CVE-2014-9228]. A hard power cycle is required to return to normal operations.

Knut St. Osmundsen reported this vulnerability.

The management console does not properly validate user-supplied input. A remote authenticated less-privileged administrative (e.g., Limited Administrators) user can supply specially crafted parameter values to execute SQL commands on the underlying database and modify data on the target system [CVE-2014-9229].

Jan Kadijk reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote authenticated user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database to modify data on the target system.

A local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system.

A local user can prevent the system from fully shutting down.
