Several Computer Associates BrightStor ARCserve Backup Agents contain a buffer overflow, which may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.
Computer Associates BrightStor ARCserve Backup is a cross-platform backup and recovery application. Backup Agents are available to provide backup support for additional applications, such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, SAP R/3, and Microsoft Exchange.
The ARCserve Backup Agents fail to properly validate input, which creates a buffer overflow vulnerability. By default, the Backup Agents listen on 6070/tcp.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on a system running the vulnerable Backup Agent.
