Trend OfficeScan flaws labelled highly critical

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Aug 1, 2008

Web-delivered products at risk of allowing remote access.

A set of vulnerabilities have been reported in Trend Micro's Officescan product, which have been flagged with the 'Highly Critical' rating by vulnerability watchers at Secunia as exploitation could allow execution of code from remote sources.

The vulnerabilities, buffer overflows in ActiveX objects used by the web deployment system, should only affect systems where clients have been set up using web deployment, and have only been shown to work under version 7.3 of the OfficeScan product.

No patch is yet available from Trend, but details of workarounds are as usual included in the Secunia bulletin here.
