Affected Products

CA ARCserve D2D r15


How to determine if the installation is affected

Using Windows Explorer, go to the directory
"<D2D_HOME>\TOMCAT\webapps\WebServiceImpl", and look for the existence
of a folder called "axis2-web".


Solution

CA has issued the following patch to address the vulnerability.

CA ARCserve D2D r15:
RO26040

If you are not able to apply the patch at this time, the following
workaround can be implemented to address the vulnerability.

1. Stop "CA ARCserve D2D Web Service" from service control manager.

2. Go to the directory "<D2D_HOME>\TOMCAT\webapps\WebServiceImpl",
and remove the folder "axis2-web".

3. Edit "<D2D_HOME>\TOMCAT\webapps\WebServiceImpl\WEB-INF\web.xml",
and remove the content of AxisAdminServlet's servlet and servlet
mapping.

The content to remove will look like the text below:

- <servlet>
<display-name>Apache-Axis Admin Servlet Web Admin</display-\
name>
<servlet-name>AxisAdminServlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>org.apache.axis2.transport.http.\
AxisAdminServlet</servlet-class>
<load-on-startup>100</load-on-startup>
</servlet>
- <servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>AxisAdminServlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/axis2-admin/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

4. Change the username and password parameters in the axis2.xml file
to stronger credentials that conform to your organization's
password policies.
"<D2D_HOME>\TOMCAT\webapps\WebServiceImpl\WEB-INF\conf\axis2.xml"

<parameter name="userName">admin</parameter>
<parameter name="password">axis2</parameter>

5. Start "CA ARCserve D2D Web Service".
