Trend InterScan VirusWall Remote Reconfiguration Vulnerability

by platon on June 6th, 2001 Interscan Viruswall is a Virus scanning software package distributed and maintained by Trend Micro. It is designed to scan for virus occurances in both incoming and outgoing traffic via SMTP, FTP, and HTTP at the gateway of the network...

The management interface used with the Interscan Viruswall uses several programs in a cgi directory that may allow a remote attacker to make configuration changes using maliciously-constructed querystrings submitted to the host.





There are currently no patches available.

Trend Micro's support team has notified sources that this problem will be fixed in Version 5.0. They reported also the patched version will be released in July, 2001.

Until the patch is released, the workaround is placing systems using this software on restricted networks.

(ie. use firewall, use access control features of the Web server)
