    Title: Symantec Scan Engine Multiple Vulnerabilities
    Threat: Moderate
    Impact: Unauthorized access
    Product: Symantec Scan Engine

    Situation Overview: Three vulnerabilities have been discovered in the
    Symantec Scan Engine. Symantec Scan Engine is a TCP/IP server and
    programming interface that enables third parties to incorporate support for
    Symantec content scanning technologies into their proprietary applications.
    This gateway-level product should not be confused with Symantec's desktop
    product.

    The Symantec Scan Engine fails to properly authenticate web-based user
    logins. Anyone with knowledge of the underlying communication mechanism can
    control the Scan Engine server.

    Symantec Scan Engine uses a static private DSA key for SSL communications.
    This key cannot be changed by end users and is easily extracted. This opens
    the product to a potential man-in-the-middle attack.

    There is a vulnerability in Symantec Scan Engine that allows
    unauthenticated remote users to download any file located under the
    Symantec Scan Engine installation directory. For instance, the
    configuration file, the scanning logs, and the current virus definitions
    can all be accessed by any remote user using regular or specially crafted
    HTTP requests.
