Description


A vulnerability has been reported in various HP Mercury products, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within MCHAN.DLL when parsing packets sent to MAGENTPROC.EXE on port 54345/TCP. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted packet containing an overly long "server_ip_name" field sent to port 54345/TCP.

The vulnerability reportedly affects the following products running on AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris, and Windows NT:
* Mercury LoadRunner Agent 8.1 SP1, FP1, FP2, FP3, and FP4
* Mercury LoadRunner Agent 8.1 GA
* Mercury LoadRunner Agent 8.0 GA
* Mercury Performance Center Agent 8.1 FP1, FP2, FP3, and FP4
* Mercury Performance Center Agent 8.1 GA
* Mercury Performance Center Agent 8.0 GA
* Mercury Monitor over Firewall 8.1


Solution:
Apply patches.
