Luigi Auriemma has discovered a vulnerability in McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a format string error within the McAfee Framework Service (FrameworkService.exe) and can be exploited via specially crafted packets containing format string specifiers sent to default port 8082/UDP.
Successful exploitation crashes the McAfee Framework Service and may allow execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator version 4.0.0 (build 1015) and including FrameworkService.exe version 188.8.131.529. Other versions may also be affected.
