7-Zip Vulnerability Could Allow for Arbitrary Code Execution

A vulnerability has been discovered in 7-Zip versions prior to 18.05, which could allow for arbitrary code execution.

Depending on the privileges associated with the user, an attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights. There are currently no reports of this vulnerability being exploited in the wild.

The Solution

Using a report to check which machines have a vulnerable version of 7-Zip and the Lansweeper deployment module, you can detect and update your vulnerable machines in no time.

  • Run this report that identifies computers running a vulnerable 7-Zip installation.
  • Based on the report output, run this deployment package to update these installations.

Check out the complete step-by-step guide and tackle this threat with Lansweeper.

Software Asset Management is one of the most important practices in the world of information technology. SAM does not only allow businesses to streamline their processes but leveraging technology allows them to manage and optimize all tasks, processes, and activities around their software and applications.

In recent years, SAM&C changed and evolved significantly, which is one of the major reasons why the need for changes and developments in the associated technologies has become more real than ever before. The primary goal of the technologies associated with SAM&C is not only to minimize risks but also maximize value and make the most of investments and processes. And that’s exactly where Microsoft Universal Inventory comes into play.

How Universal Inventory will reduce licensing complexity

Using data available and accessible through several platforms including Lansweeper, Microsoft SCCM, and VMware vCenter, Microsoft Universal Inventory provides a holistic and accurate overview of the IT environment.

Once all the required information has been gathered, it is then normalized and checked for any inconsistencies to ensure that the resulting data set is not only complete but also free from any errors or inaccuracies that may have the potential to cause problems in the long run.

After receiving data, Universal Inventory finds corresponding records across the input. Then it consolidates that information into one line per user or device, to ensure that the resulting data set is free from any errors or inaccuracies that may have the potential to cause problems in the long run. To top it off, various services are available to normalize the resulting dataset.

Here’s the kicker. Once everything’s up and running, it takes just one click to refresh your data.
