Some vulnerabilities have been reported in HP OpenView products, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors in the Shared Trace Service component within ovtrcsvc.exe and OVTrace.exe when handling certain requests. These can be exploited to cause stack-based buffer overflows via sending specially crafted requests (opcode handler 0x1a or 0x0f) to the service.
The vulnerabilities affect the following products and versions:
