Version(s): 8.0, 8.2; Symantec Ghost Solution Suite 1.0
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Symantec Ghost and Symantec Ghose Solution Suite. A local user can obtain elevated privileges.

The vulnerabilities reside in the Sybase SQLAnywhere database that is installed with Symantec Ghost and the Central Management Console in Symantec Ghost Solutions Suite.

The system uses a default administrator login and password pair during installation. A local user can use these default values to modify or delete stored administrative tasks.

A local user can exploit a memory mapping permission vulnerability to gain access to information stored in the database or modify stored information.

A local user can trigger a buffer overflow in the login dialog of 'dbisqlc.exe', which is installed by default but not used by default. A local user can exploit this to gain access to information in the database.

Ollie Whitehouse from Symantec discovered these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A local user can obtain administrative access to the database.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fixed version (8.3) of Symantec Ghost and a fixed version (1.1) of Symantec Ghost Solutions Suite.
