FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PC-Doctor, Inc., the global leader in PC, Android, Chrome OS, and Mac system health technologies, has learned of a security vulnerability in an Intel-provided driver used in our Intel-specific network diagnostics for Windows.
This vulnerability may allow a local administrator to potentially enable escalation of privilege. For more details, refer to INTEL-SA-00135.
This vulnerability can be exploited only if someone with local administrative access to the system makes a specially crafted request to Intel’s driver while it is loaded by a PC-Doctor product. The Intel driver is loaded briefly when PC-Doctor detects hardware in the system, and when a user runs network diagnostics on some Intel Ethernet controllers.
The impacted PC-Doctor products are those running under Windows with a bundled version of Intel's network diagnostics driver (< 220.127.116.11), including:
PC-Doctor recommends that Factory customers update to the newest version. We will provide updated versions of other impacted products in the future.
In the meantime, it is possible to use the following steps to remove the vulnerable driver and the software components that use it.
