An attacker could create a message with an arbitrary payload to exploit the vulnerability and execute arbitrary code on the targeted system. An attacker could leverage this vulnerability to exploit other weaknesses or gain privileged access to critical systems. Trend Micro is aware of a low-severity vulnerability (CVE) reported in Trend Micro’s endpoint protection solution. The vulnerability is categorized as an out-of-bound memory access bug and exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input data on the affected service process. A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause memory corruption and consequently execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of that service process. What might an attacker do with this vulnerability? An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain access to sensitive information on the system, install keyloggers, or even elevate privileges to system level. How could an attacker exploit this vulnerability? An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to send a message with an arbitrary payload to the vulnerable service process and gain access to sensitive information on the system.

An attacker could also exploit this vulnerability to install keyloggers and/or elevate privileges to system level. What are the risks associated with this vulnerability? An attacker with low-level access to a system could exploit this vulnerability to gain access to sensitive information or install keyloggers
