DESCRIPTION:
A security issue and a vulnerability have been reported in Symantec
pcAnywhere and IT Management Suite, which can be exploited by
malicious, local users to perform certain actions with escalated
privileged and by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable
system.

1) The security issue is caused due to insecure file permissions on
certain files, which can be exploited to overwrite the files and gain
escalated privileges.

2) A boundary error within the awhost32 component when handling
authentication requests can be exploited to cause a stack-based
buffer overflow via an overly long request sent to TCP port 5631.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow execution of
arbitrary code.

The security issue and the vulnerability are reported in the
following products:
* Symantec pcAnywhere version 12.5.x
* Symantec Altiris IT Management Suite version 7.0
* Symantec Altiris IT Management Suite version 7.1

SOLUTION:
Apply hotfix TECH179526.
