Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')
Race condition in the file transfer functionality in Symantec Altiris Deployment Solution 6.9.x before 6.9 SP3 Build 430 allows remote attackers to read sensitive files and prevent client updates by connecting to the file transfer port before the expected client does.
CWE-362 - Race Condition
A race condition occurs in a shared memory program when two threads/processes access the same shared memory data, and at least one thread executes a write operation. This vulnerability manipulates the time to check vs. time to use (TOC/TOU) gap between the threads in the critical section to cause disorientation in the shared data. The impact can vary from compromising the confidentiality of the system to causing the system to crash or to execute arbitrary code.
