EMC Avamar ADS / AVE < 7.3.0 Hotfix 263301 PostgreSQL Command Local Privilege Escalation (ESA-2016-111)
High Nessus Plugin ID 95921
SynopsisA backup solution running on the remote host is affected by a local privilege escalation vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the EMC Avamar Data Store (ADS) or Avamar Virtual Edition (AVE) software running on the remote host is a version prior to 7.3.0 Hotfix 263301 (184.108.40.206), or the configuration is not patched. It is, therefore, affected by a local privilege escalation vulnerability that allows a local attacker to execute arbitrary PostgreSQL commands and thereby gain elevated privileged.
SolutionUpgrade to EMC Avamar ADS / AVE version 7.3.0 Hotfix 263301 (220.127.116.11) and apply the configuration changes documented in KB486276.
