The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by
several denial of service vulnerabilities.
Backup Exec for Windows Servers, a commercial backup product from
Symantec, is installed on the remote host.
The version of the Backup Exec Job Engine, bengine.exe, installed as
part of Backup Exec for Windows Server on the remote host contains a
NULL pointer dereference error when handling exceptions. Using a
specially crafted packet, an attacker can leverage this issue to crash
the affected service.
In addition, it is affected by two overflow errors that can cause the
service to enter an infinite loop, resulting in high CPU utilization
and / or memory exhaustion.
