Symantec Norton Ghost 10 Service Manager Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
------------------------------------------------------------------------


SUMMARY


<http://www.symantec.com/home_homeoffice/products/overview.jsp?pcid=br&pvid=ghost10 > Symantec Norton Ghost is "a backup and recovery application designed to allow users to completely restore their systems to previous snapshots".

Local exploitation of a buffer overflow vulnerability in Norton Ghost
could allow local attackers to run code as the SYSTEM level user.

DETAILS

Vulnerable Systems:
* Norton Ghost version 10.0.
* Other versions may be vulnerable as well.

Norton Ghost Service Manager is a Local Server COM object that allows
privileged Ghost Backup Operators the ability to take and restore Ghost
images of the system.

A function within the Service Manager can be used to trigger a buffer
overflow by supplying an overly long string.

Exploitation allows local attackers to execute code as the SYSTEM level
user.

In order to be able to exploit this vulnerability, attackers must have
tasking privileges for the Norton Ghost Service Manager.

Symantec has addressed this vulnerability with a software update. The
update is available via their LiveUpdate channels.
