Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Multiple buffer overflows in LGSERVER.EXE in CA BrightStor ARCserve Backup for Laptops and Desktops r11.0 through r11.1 SP1, Mobile Backup r4.0, Desktop and Business Protection Suite r2, and Desktop Management Suite (DMS) r11.0 and r11.1 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted packets to TCP port (1) 1900 or (2) 2200.
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.
