HPE LoadRunner < 12.53 Patch 4 libxdrutil.dll mxdr_string() RCE

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 97888


An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The version of HP LoadRunner installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 12.53 patch 4. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to a heap-based buffer overflow condition in the mxdr_string() function in libxdrutil.dll. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade to HP LoadRunner version 12.53 patch 4 or later.
