Secunia Advisory SA25202

Where:

From local network

Impact:

Privilege escalation, System access

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Two vulnerabilities have been reported in various CA products, which can be exploited by malicious users to gain escalated privileges and by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

1) A boundary error within the inoweb service when processing Console Server login credentials can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via sending a specially crafted packet with overly long username and password fields to port 12168/TCP.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code but requires an installation on the x86 platform with the Console Server installed.

The vulnerability affects the following products:
* CA Anti-Virus for the Enterprise r8
* CA Threat Manager r8
* CA Anti-Spyware r8
* CA Protection Suites r3

2) The problem is that the Task Service component (InoTask.exe) uses a shared file mapping with a NULL security descriptor. This can be exploited by malicious users to cause a stack-based buffer overflow within InoCore.dll by modifying a certain string within the file mapping.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.

The vulnerability affects the following products:
* CA Anti-Virus for the Enterprise r8
* CA Threat Manager r8
