PGP Desktop PGPserv Arbitrary Code Execution Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks version of PGP Desktop

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a
privilege escalation issue.

Description :

The version of PGP Desktop installed on the remote host reportedly can
permit a remote authenticated user to execute arbitrary code on the
affected host with LOCAL SYSTEM rights. The issue arises because
the software operates a service named 'PGPServ' or 'PGPsdkServ' that
exposes a named pipe that fails to validate the object data passed to
it.
