PCAnywhere V.8, upgrade B on NT - install disables screensaver



Vulnerability

    PCAnywhere

Affected

    PCAnywhere V.8, upgrade B on NT

Description

    George A. Brown II found following.  It's basicly the same as:

        http://oliver.efri.hr/~crv/security/bugs/NT/ie34.html

    It was confirmed that after installing Symantec's upgrade patch  B
    for PCAnywhere V8.0,  the NT Screensaver  becomes disabled.   This
    could not be resolved even after reapplying SPK4.  The screensaver
    will function properly after the original install as well as after
    the  upgrade  patch  A,  but  will  not  function  once patch B is
    installed.  If an  NT box has the  screensaver enabled as a  means
    of securing the box in case a user forgets to logout or if logging
    out  is  not  an  option  and  the  user  just forgets to lock the
    workstation, that box is available to others.

Solution

    Symantec has been contacted.
