Description


Krystian Kloskowski has reported a vulnerability in CA BrightStor ARCserve Backup for Laptops & Desktops, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the "AddColumn()" method within the "ListCtrl" ActiveX control (ListCtrl.ocx), which can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long argument passed to the affected method.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code e.g. when a user visits a malicious web page.

* BrightStor ARCServe Backup for Laptops and Desktops r11.5
* CA Desktop Management Suite r11.2 C1
