This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The version of HP LoadRunner installed on the remote host contains a
remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of HP LoadRunner installed on the remote host reportedly
blindly trusts user-supplied data as an allocation size and uses to
copy data from a request packet into a statically allocated heap
buffer.

A remote attacker who is able to contact TCP ports 5001 or 5002 on the
remote host can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with
SYSTEM privileges.
