Based on our product’s threat model, attacks on the communication channel
within remote management services (configuration, update, etc.) can be
implemented on any target system regardless of user activity. Thus, by using a
man in the middle attack, arbitrary code can be remotely executed in high
privilege AV processes. As a result, malware code will work as part of AV
product and bypass detection technologies. We take this possibility very
A special bounty of $100,000 will be awarded for high-quality report with PoC that implements this attack vector.
