Vulnerability CVE-2016-9892


Published: 2017-03-02   Modified: 2017-03-03

Description:
The esets_daemon service in ESET Endpoint Antivirus for macOS before 6.4.168.0 and Endpoint Security for macOS before 6.4.168.0 does not properly verify X.509 certificates from the edf.eset.com SSL server, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof this server and provide crafted responses to license activation requests via a self-signed certificate. NOTE: this issue can be combined with CVE-2016-0718 to execute arbitrary code remotely as root.
