CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database (NVD)
Summary:

Symantec pcAnywhere through 12.5.3, Altiris IT Management Suite pcAnywhere Solution 7.0 (aka 12.5.x) and 7.1 (aka 12.6.x), Altiris Client Management Suite pcAnywhere Solution 7.0 (aka 12.5.x) and 7.1 (aka 12.6.x), and Altiris Deployment Solution Remote pcAnywhere Solution 7.1 (aka 12.5.x and 12.6.x) do not properly handle the client state after abnormal termination of a remote session, which allows remote attackers to obtain access to the client by leveraging an "open client session."

Exploitability Analysis:

This is a vulnerability exploitable with network access which means the vulnerable software is bound to the network stack and the attacker does not require local network access or local access to exploit it. Such a vulnerability is often termed “remotely exploitable”.

Exploitability Complexity:

Specialized access conditions or extenuating circumstances do not exist. The following are examples: The affected product typically requires access to a wide range of systems and users, possibly anonymous an untrusted (e.g., Internet-facing web or mail server). The affected configuration is default or ubiquitous. The attack can be performed manually and requires little skill or additional information gathering. The 'race condition' is a lazy one (i.e., it is technically a race but easily winnable).

Authentication:

Authentication is not required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact:

There is total information disclosure, resulting in all system files being revealed. The attacker is able to read all of the system's data (memory, files, etc.).

Integrity Impact:

There is a total compromise of system integrity. There is a complete loss of system protection, resulting in the entire system being compromised. The attacker is able to modify any files on the target system.

Availability Impact:

There is a total shutdown of the affected resource. The attacker can render the resource completely unavailable.
