Re: Microsoft Data Access Objects Library 3.6 DLL Hijacking Vulnerability

Hi kulczykm,

First the "Microsoft Data Access Objects Library 3.6 DLL Hijacking Vulnerability" CVE-2010-4182 was already covered by MVM please check this document: http://www.mcafee.com/us/resources/release-notes/foundstone/fsl_08_02_2011.pdf

Second, if you detected that vulnerability the best thing to do in my opinion is to use a preventive solution as an IPS. That's why I checked the my McAfee NSP solution and I looked for that vulnerability in the "all inclusive without audit" policy, I searched by CVE as reference, and ooohh surprise I didn't find any coverage.

Conclusion: in my opinion the best solution for a not patched vuln is use a preventive tool like an IPS. Now I'm wondering Why McAfee NSP has no coverage for that vuln...I feel a little bit worried now.
