Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): VirusScan Enterprise for Linux 2.0.3 and prior
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux. A remote user can conduct cross-site request forgery attacks. A remote authenticated user can obtain files on the target system. A remote authenticated user can inject SQL commands. A remote user can bypass authentication. A remote authenticated user can execute arbitrary code on the target system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote authenticated user can submit a specially crafted URL to determine if specified files exist on the target system [CVE-2016-8016].

A remote authenticated user can send specially crafted data to view files on the target web server [CVE-2016-8017].

A remote authenticated user can create a specially crafted HTML page or URL that, when loaded by the target authenticated user, will take actions on the target interface acting as the target user [CVE-2016-8018].

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in certain attributes before displaying the input [CVE-2016-8019]. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the McAfee VirusScan software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A remote authenticated user can send a specially crafted HTTP request parameter to execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2016-8020].

A remote authenticated user can exploit a signature validation flaw and spoof the update server to execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2016-8021].

A remote user can submit a specially crafted cookie to deny service or execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2016-8022].

A remote user can submit a specially crafted cookie to bypass authentication on the target system [CVE-2016-8023].

A remote user can inject CRLF characters in HTTP headers to obtain potentially sensitive information [CVE-2016-8024].

The software does not properly validate user-supplied input in HTTP request parameters. A remote authenticated user can supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database [CVE-2016-8025].

Andrew Fasano reported these vulnerabilities via US-CERT.

Impact:   A remote user can take actions on the target system acting as the target authenticated user.

A remote authenticated user can execute arbitrary code on the target system.

A remote authenticated user can obtain files on the target system.

A remote authenticated user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

A remote user can bypass authentication on the target system.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the McAfee VirusScan software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Solution:   The vendor recommends upgrading to Endpoint Security for Linux (ENSL) 10.2.0.
