Impact by CVSS Score
  • ID: CVE-2007-1476
Summary:

The SymTDI device driver (SYMTDI.SYS) in Symantec Norton Personal Firewall 2006 9.1.1.7 and earlier, Internet Security 2005 and 2006, AntiVirus Corporate Edition 3.0.x through 10.1.x, and other Norton products, allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by sending crafted data to the driver's \Device file, which triggers invalid memory access, a different vulnerability than CVE-2006-4855.

Exploitability Analysis:

This is a vulnerability exploitable with only local access requires the attacker to have either physical access to the vulnerable system or a local (shell) account. Examples of locally exploitable vulnerabilities are peripheral attacks such as Firewire/USB DMA attacks, and local privilege escalations (e.g., sudo).

Exploitability Complexity:

The access conditions are somewhat specialized; the following are examples: The attacking party is limited to a group of systems or users at some level of authorization, possibly untrusted. Some information must be gathered before a successful attack can be launched. The affected configuration is non-default, and is not commonly configured (e.g., a vulnerability present when a server performs user account authentication via a specific scheme, but not present for another authentication scheme). The attack requires a small amount of social engineering that might occasionally fool cautious users (e.g., phishing attacks that modify a web browser’s status bar to show a false link, having to be on someone’s “buddy” list before sending an IM exploit).

Authentication:

Authentication is not required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact:

There is no impact to the confidentiality of the system.

Integrity Impact:

There is no impact to the integrity of the system.

Availability Impact:

There is reduced performance or interruptions in resource availability. An example is a network-based flood attack that permits a limited number of successful connections to an Internet service.
