This finding is based on version information which may not have been updated by

previously installed patches (e.g., Red Hat "back ports"). Please submit a "Patched

Services" dispute in TrustKeeper if this vulnerability has already been patched.

McAfee Common Management Agent 'FrameworkService.exe' Remote Denial

of Service Vulnerability

This host is running a version of McAfee Common Management Agent that is prone
