Resource Management Errors


Severity High
Score 7.8/10


FastBackMount.exe in the Mount service in IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) FastBack through and through does not properly handle a certain failure to allocate memory, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash, and recovery failure) by specifying a large size value within TCP packet data. NOTE: this might overlap CVE-2010-3061.
