VERITAS Backup Exec Agent Unauthenticated Remote Registry Access

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of VERITAS Backup Exec for
Windows that is vulnerable to a remote registry access. An attacker
may exploit this flaw to modify the remote registry and gain a full
access to the system.

To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send requests to the
RPC service listening on port 6106.

The patch for this vulnerability fixes other remote flaws (buffer
overflows) that may allow an attacker to execute code on the remote
host with SYSTEM privileges.
