VERITAS Storage Foundation NULL NTLMSSP Authentication Bypass (SYM08-015)

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


Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host.

Description :

The version of the Scheduler Service component installed as part of
Veritas Storage Foundation for Windows on the remote host allows NULL
NTLMSSP authentication. If requests can be sent to the TCP service
listening on port 4888, a remote attacker can leverage this issue
to add, modify, or delete snapshot schedules and consequently to run
arbitrary code on the affected host under the context of the SYSTEM
user.
