Vulnerability Note VU#860048
Computer Associates BrightStor ARCserv and Protection Suite products RPC buffer overflow vulnerabilities
Multiple vulnerabilities exist in Computer Associates backup products. If successfully exploited, these vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
BrightStor ARCserve Backup is a backup and data retention tool that integrates with other BrightStor Data Availability and BrightStor Storage Management solutions. Computer Associates Protection Suites offer multiple Computer Associates security and data recovery products in a single package.
BrightStor and CA (Computer Associates) Protection Suite products contain multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities due to incorrect handling of RPC requests. These overflows may be exploited by sending a malformed RPC request with Opnum 43 (port 6503/tcp) or Opnum 45 (port 6503/tcp) to a vulnerable system.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.
