Title:   Symantec LiveUpdate for Macintosh Local Privilege Escalation
Threat:  Moderate
Impact: Local Privilege Escalation
Product: LiveUpdate for Macintosh

Situation Overview:

Some components of Symantecs LiveUpdate for Macintosh do not set their
execution path environment. A non-privileged user can change their
execution path environment. If the user then executes one of these
components, it will inherit the changed environment and use it to locate
system commands. These components are configured to run with System
Administrative privileges (SUID) and are vulnerable to a potential Trojan
horse attack.
