The remote service is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


According to its version, the installation of HP Data Protector Media Operations Server on the remote host allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the affected host with SYSTEM privileges due to a buffer overflow.

Note that the vendor reports only Windows installs are affected.
