SituationA vulnerability has been detected in the installation of Corporate Software Solution products which gives Full Control permissions over the program's installation directory files.
Consequently, a local user without the necessary privileges could replace the files with malicious executable files and run arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.
To resolve the local privilege escalation problems, Panda Security has developed a hotfix. Follow the steps below to apply it:
- Download the hotfix for your operating system:
- Save the file to your hard disk; to the Windows Desktop, for example.
- Run the downloaded file. You can do this by double-clicking the file to apply the hotfix.
- Check that the incident has been resolved.
Panda Security would like to thank researcher Nikolas Sotiriu for working responsibly with us and for his constant effort to improve security.
