IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Client Multiple Vulnerabilities (swg21268775)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote backup client is susceptible to multiple attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) client.

The version of the TSM client installed on the remote host reportedly
contains a buffer overflow vulnerability in its Client Acceptor Daemon
(CAD) service. Using an HTTP request with a long Host header, a
remote attacker may be able to exploit this issue to crash the
affected host or to execute arbitrary commands with administrative
privileges.

In addition, the use of server-initiated prompted scheduling also may
allow unauthorized access to the client's data under certain
conditions.
