    Symantec Response:
    Symantec engineers have verified that these vulnerabilities exist in the
    product versions listed in the table above and have provided updates to
    address the

    issues.

    Symantec is not aware of any customers impacted by either of these issues or
    of any attempts to exploit them.
    As a part of normal best practices, users should keep vendor-supplied
    patches for all application software and operating systems up-to-date.
    Symantec

    recommends any affected customers update their product to protect against
    these types of threats.


    Mitigation:
    In a managed environment, administrators can lock the ability to change the
    notification messages. This option prevents users from easily changing the


    alert messages.


    For additional information and any updates, please see the following
    advisory: http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/sec...dvisories.html

    stlivingston this was just released yeseterday by Symantec, try following the link provided.

    Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition Elevation of Privilege

    It even has a different CVE assigned to it. The link you provided has a CVE-2006-2630 this one has CVE-2006-3454 and this indicates that this is a new and /different/ vulnerability. It may have the same outcome but it is probably achieved in a different way.

    Hope that helps

    In Internet terminology, a troll is someone who comes into an established community such as an online discussion forum, and posts inflammatory, rude, repetitive or offensive messages designed intentionally to annoy or antagonize the existing members or disrupt the flow of discussion, including the personal attack of calling others trolls. Often, trolls assume multiple aliases, or sock puppets.
