VULNERABILITY DETAILS

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Symantec IM Manager. Authentication is required to exploit this vulnerability in that a logged in user must be coerced into visiting a malicious link.

The specific flaw exists within the ScheduleTask method exposed by the IMAdminSchedTask.asp page hosted on the web interface. This function does not properly sanitize user input from a POST variable before passing it to an eval call. An attacker can abuse this to inject and execute arbitrary ASP under the context of the user visiting the malicious link.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS Symantec has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
