Synopsis :

The remote backup service is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack running on the
remote host is 5.5.x or 6.1.x prior to 6.1.12.2. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple buffer overflow conditions exist in server
command processing due to improper bounds checking of
user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit these to cause a buffer overflow, resulting
in a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary
code with system privileges. (CVE-2015-8519,
CVE-2015-8520, CVE-2015-8521, CVE-2015-8522)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists that allows an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to shut down the
service via a specially crafted TCP packet.
(CVE-2015-8523)
