DLL injection in McAfee Agent allowing a local administrator to kill the antivirus, or tamper with it, without knowing the McAfee password
macompatsvc.exe McAfee Agent process tries to load the missing
wow64log.dll DLL file (in
System32). By DLL planting a malicious file, a local Windows administrator can achieve code execution in the context of this trusted McAfee process and kill other McAfee processes thus achieving a denial of service on the antivirus which cannot detect and clean viruses anymore.
