From local network

Impact:

System access

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Veritas Netbackup, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors within the volume manager (vmd) daemon, the NetBackup Catalog (bpdbm) daemon, and the NetBackup Sharepoint Services server (bpspsserver) daemon. These can be exploited to cause buffer overflows when processing incoming, specially crafted packets.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerabilities affect the following products:
* NetBackup Enterprise Server/NetBackup Server; Server and Clients 6.0 (all platforms)
* NetBackup Enterprise Server/NetBackup Server; Server and Clients 5.1 (all platforms)
* NetBackup Enterprise Server/NetBackup Server; Server and Clients 5.0 (all platforms)
* NetBackup DataCenter and BusinesServer; Server and Clients 4.5FP (all platforms)
* NetBackup DataCenter and BusinesServer; Server and Clients 4.5MP (all platforms)


Solution:
Apply patches.
