IBM Tivoli Management Framework Endpoint addr URL Remote Buffer Overflow
High Nessus Plugin ID 54924
SynopsisA web server running on the remote host has a buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, the Tivoli Endpoint installation running on the remote host is earlier than 4.1.1-LCF-0076 or 4.3.1-LCF-0012LA, and therefore has a buffer overflow vulnerability. Input to the 'opts' parameter of '/addr' is not properly validated. Authentication is required for exploitation, though this can be achieved trivially by using a built-in account.
A remote, authenticated attacker could exploit this by sending a malicious POST request to the server, resulting in arbitrary code execution.
SolutionUpgrade to Tivoli Endpoint 4.1.1-LCF-0076 / 4.3.1-LCF-0012LA or later. Alternatively, use the workaround described in the IBM advisory.
