CA Multiple Products Message Queuing Multiple Remote DoS

medium Nessus Plugin ID 20840
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


It is possible to crash the remote messaging service.


The remote version of CA Message Queuing Service is vulnerable to two flaws that could lead to a denial of service :

- Improper handling of specially crafted TCP packets on port 4105 (CVE-2006-0529)

- Failure to handle spoofed UDP CAM requests (CVE-2006-0530)


CA has released a set of patches for CAM 1.05, 1.07 and 1.11.
