CA Multiple Product Message Engine RPC Server Code Execution Vulnerability
LSsec has discovered a vulnerability in Computer Associates BrightStor
ARCserve Backup, which could be exploited by an anonymous attacker in
order to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges on an affected
system. The flaw specifically exists within the Discovery Service
(casdscsvc.exe) due to incorrect handling of requests on TCP port 41523.
* BrightStor ARCserve Backup version R11.5 Server
* BrightStor Enterprise Backup version 10.5
* BrightStor ARCserve Backup version 9.01
* CA Server Protection Suite r2
* CA Business Protection Suite r2
The BrightStor software will automatically detect other BrightStor
(ARCserve) servers on the local network. The Discovery Service sends a
packet to the broadcast address of a given subnet. Each system running the
Discovery Service responds to the IP address embedded in the broadcast
packet. All systems discovered on the subnet transmit their hostnames and
IP addresses and then read in the hostname of the system which initiated
the broadcast. This hostname is copied into a fixed 1024 byte stack buffer
by use of an incongruous call to vsprintf() in ASBRDCST.DLL.
Computer Associates has issued an update to correct this vulnerability.
