Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Multiple buffer overflows in CA BrightStor ARCserve Backup r11.5 SP1 and earlier, r11.1, and 9.01; BrightStor ARCserve Backup for Windows r11; BrightStor Enterprise Backup 10.5; Server Protection Suite r2; and Business Protection Suite r2 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted data on TCP port 6071 to the Backup Agent RPC Server (DBASVR.exe) using the RPC routines with opcode (1) 0x01, (2) 0x02, or (3) 0x18; invalid stub data on TCP port 6503 to the RPC routines with opcode (4) 0x2b or (5) 0x2d in ASCORE.dll in the Message Engine RPC Server (msgeng.exe); (6) a long hostname on TCP port 41523 to ASBRDCST.DLL in the Discovery Service (casdscsvc.exe); or unspecified vectors related to the (7) Job Engine Service.
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
