McAfee Advanced Threat Defense - Sandbox Fingerprinting & Bypass
--
http://www.info-sec.ca/advisories/McAfee-ATD.html

Overview
"McAfee Advanced Threat Defense protects against advanced malware,
including zero-day and advanced persistent threats, providing the
strongest advanced threat protection available."
(www.mcafee.com/us/products/advanced-threat-defense.aspx)

Issue
The McAfee Advanced Threat Defense solution relies on a number of
static configurations present across all deployments which, when
chained together, could allow an attacker to detect the present of the
sandbox within the environment.

Impact
A specially crafted binary could be created which, when analyzed by
ATD, detects the present of the sandbox and runs benign code, but when
run on the target, executes malicious code. To demonstrate this
vulnerability, I created proof of concept code which detects the
presence of the ATD sandbox via localhost FTP and the following static
credentials:

User: Administrator
Password: cr@cker42

Timeline
October 21, 2014 - Notified McAfee via security@mcafee.com
November 4, 2014 - McAfee confirmed the vulnerability and provided a
target date of December 31, 2014 to provide an updated version
January 15, 2015 - McAfee released a security update to resolve this issue

Solution
Upgrade to version 3.4.4.14 or later
