Synopsis :

The remote backup client is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version number, the Retrospect Backup Client
installed on the remote host is affected by several vulnerabilities :

- An error in the client may lead to memory corruption
and in turn a denial of service condition when
processing specially crafted packets, although only
when an English client is used on a Chinese operating
system, which is not a supported configuration.

- The password hash is sent over the network unencrypted,
which could result in its disclosure.

- A null pointer dereference error may lead to a denial
of service condition.
