A vulnerability has been reported in ArcSDE, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the ArcSDE service when using three tiered ArcSDE configurations. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted connection packet containing an overly long string sent to the ArcSDE service (by default port 5151/tcp).
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is reported in versions 8.3, 9.0, 9.1, and 9.2.
Solution: The vendor has issued patches for various platforms (see vendor advisories for details).
Provided and/or discovered by: Discovered by an anonymous person and reported via iDefense Labs.
Original Advisory: ESRI ArcSDE 8.3:
