This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host has a back-up management application installed that is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The Veritas NetBackup installation on the remote Windows host is 7.x
prior to version 7.7.2 or is missing a vendor supplied hotfix. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote command execution vulnerability exists in the
bpcd service due to a failure to properly sanitize
user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this to execute arbitrary commands.
(CVE-2015-6550)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to
insufficient protection of communication between the NBU
server and the administration console. A
man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to disclose
sensitive information including login credentials.
(CVE-2015-6551)

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows a remote attacker
to execute arbitrary RPC calls. (CVE-2015-6552)
