Veritas NetBackup 7.x < 7.7.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities (VTS16-001)

High Nessus Plugin ID 91126


The remote host has a back-up management application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The Veritas NetBackup installation on the remote Windows host is 7.x prior to version 7.7.2 or is missing a vendor supplied hotfix. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote command execution vulnerability exists in the bpcd service due to a failure to properly sanitize user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary commands.

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to insufficient protection of communication between the NBU server and the administration console. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive information including login credentials.

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary RPC calls. (CVE-2015-6552)


Upgrade to Veritas NetBackup version 7.7.2 or later. Alternatively, apply the vendor-supplied hotfix as referenced in the vendor advisory.
