High-Tech Bridge SA has reported a vulnerability in HP Device Access Manager for HP ProtectTools and HP ProtectTools Enterprise Device Access Manager, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the Device Access Manager ActiveX Control (PTDMInformationStore.dll) when handling the "AddUser()", "AddUserEx()", "RemoveUser()", "RemoveUserByGuide()", "RemoveUserEx()", and "RemoveUserRegardless()" methods. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via an overly long string passed in the "SidString" argument.
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is reported in HP Device Access Manager for HP ProtectTools versions prior to 188.8.131.52 and HP ProtectTools Enterprise Device Access Manager versions v1, v3, and v5. Please see the vendor's advisory for the list of affected systems.
Provided and/or discovered by: High-Tech Bridge SA.
