Norton Insufficient protection of Norton service registry keys

Basic information:


Release date: July 15, 2006

Last update: July 26, 2006

Severity:Medium

Character:System crash

Status:Unknown

Testing program: BTP00004P002NF.zip

Description:

Norton insufficiently checks calling standard Windows API functions RegSaveKey, RegRestoreKey and RegDeleteKey. A proper combination of mentioned function calls on registry key 'HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SNDSrvc' or on key 'HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SymEvent' causes a system crash due to erroneous implementation of Norton's driver.
