IBM Spectrum Protect Server 220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168 SELECT Command RCE
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 97524
SynopsisThe backup service installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionIBM Spectrum Protect, formerly known as Tivoli Storage Manager, installed on the remote host is version 22.214.171.124 through 126.96.36.199. It is, therefore, affected by a buffer overflow condition when handling the SELECT command in a SQL query due to improper validation of input.
An authenticated, remote attacker with TSM administrator privileges can exploit this issue, via a specially crafted SQL query, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to IBM Spectrum Protect Server 188.8.131.52 or later.
