Vulnerability in Avira Antivirus through 15.0.2005.1866 (CVE-2020-12680)

oval:org.cisecurity:def:7936

Avira Free Antivirus through 15.0.2005.1866 allows local users to discover user credentials. The functions of the executable file Avira.PWM.NativeMessaging.exe are aimed at collecting credentials stored in Chrome Firefox Opera and Edge. The executable does not verify the calling program and thus a request such as fetchChromePasswords or fetchCredentials will succeed. NOTE: some third parties have stated that this is "not a vulnerability."
