A vulnerability has been reported in HP OpenView Storage Data Protector, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the Cell Manager component (crs.exe) when handling certain message types. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted message sent to the process' TCP port.
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges, but requires knowing the process' TCP port, which is randomly allocated.
The vulnerability is reported in version 6.11 running on HP-UX, Solaris, Linux and Windows.
Solution: Apply patches (please see the vendor's advisory for details).
Provided and/or discovered by: An anonymous researcher and Abdul Aziz Hariri of ThirdEyeTesters, reported via ZDI.
