HP LoadRunner 11.52 Buffer Overflow RCE (uncredentialed check)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 83993
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.


The remote host has a software performance testing application running that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The version of HP LoadRunner running on the remote host is 11.52, and the file 'two_way_comm.dll' is not patched. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.


Apply the patch referenced in the vendor advisory.
