Synopsis :

A software performance testing application installed on the remote
Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of HP Performance Center installed on the remote Windows
host is 11.52.x or 12.x prior to 12.53. It is, therefore, affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :

- An overflow condition exists in mchan.dll due to a
failure to validate the size of a user-supplied string
prior to copying it to a stack-based buffer. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
cause a stack-based buffer overflow, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4359)

- A flaw exists in the CSV import feature when handling
file paths. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this to delete arbitrary files on the remote
system. (CVE-2016-4360)

- A flaw exists in the magentservice.exe service that is
triggered when handling malformed xdr_string fields in a
series of service connection requests. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a
specially crafted request, to crash the service,
resulting in a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2016-4361)

- A flaw exists in the mchan.dll library due to improper
parsing of malformed packets. An unauthenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted
request, to crash the service, resulting in a denial of
service condition. (CVE-2016-4384)
