Vulnerability CVE-2006-6308


Published: 2006-12-06   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
** DISPUTED ** Symantec LiveState 7.1 Agent for Windows allows local users to gain privileges by stopping the shstart.exe process and open "Web Self-Service" from the system tray icon, which will open a browser window running with elevated privileges. NOTE: several third-party researchers have noted that administrator privileges may be necessary to terminate shstart.exe. If this is the case, then no privilege escalation occurs, and this is not a vulnerability.
