Vulnerability Details

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on 
vulnerable installations of Symantec Endpoint Protection. Authentication is 
not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists within the portion of the server that generates 
reports. Due to the combination of insufficient checks being performed on the
application and failure to authenticate a user for generating a chart, an 
attacker can overwrite arbitrary files on a server. Careful exploitation can 
lead to code execution under the context of the php interpreter.

Vendor Response

Symantec has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can
