McAfee VirusScan Patch 16 has a security vulnerability, preventing hackers to bypass their restriction

Mcafee VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) is a series of Mcafee (Mcafee) antivirus applications from the United States.

The app offers a full range of protection for stability, scans memory to detect malicious code, and optimizes remote device updates. A security flaw is correlated with McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 Patch 16.

The weakness is triggered by an incorrect assignment of permissions that enables local administrators to circumvent local security protection, incorrectly incorporate control of the Windows Defender framework through VSE and carefully exploit code integrity tests.
