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 running on the remote host has one or more of the
following vulnerabilities :

- A remote stack-based buffer overflow in the client
acceptor daemon (CAD) scheduler could lead to the
execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-3853)

- A remote, stack-based buffer overflow in the traditional
scheduler could lead to the execution of arbitrary
code. (CVE-2009-3854)

- There is an unspecified, unauthorized access
vulnerability in the Unix, Linux, and OS/400 API clients
when specifying the MAILPROG option. This vulnerability
reportedly allows a remote attacker to modify arbitrary
files on the remote host. (CVE-2009-2855)
