IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Express Backup Server Service (dsmsvc.exe) Packet Handling Remote Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote backup service is affected by a buffer overflow issue.

Description :

The version of Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) Express installed on the
remote host is prior to 5.3.7.3. It is, therefore, affected by a
heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability that can be triggered by a
user-supplied length value. This could allow an unauthenticated
attacker to run arbitrary code on the host with SYSTEM privileges.
