[Full-disclosure] [TKADV2008-006] CA HIPS KmxFw.sys Kernel Memory Corruption



The kernel driver KmxFw.sys shipped with various CA products contains a
vulnerability in the code that handles IOCTL requests. Exploitation of
this vulnerability can result in:

1) local denial of service attacks (system crash due to a kernel panic),
or

2) local execution of arbitrary code at the kernel level (complete
system compromise)
