Summary
A vulnerability in the system management of certain FireAMP system

longer be available.

The vulnerability is due to lack of proper access controls when using 
systems utilities to troubleshoot certain system processes. An attacker could
exploit this vulnerability by authenticating to the application and using the
system utilities to stop certain FireAMP processes. An exploit could allow the
