Bakbone NetVault Multiple Vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2784


The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.


The remote host is running Bakbone NetVault, an enterprise backup/restore application. This version of NetVault is vulnerable to a remote heap overflow as well as a local content-parsing overflow. An attacker exploiting the first flaw would need to be able to connect to the application on port 20031. A successful exploit would result in arbitrary code being executed by the SYSTEM process. An attacker exploiting the second flaw would need local read/write access to the Netvault configuration files. A successful attack would lead to arbitrary code being executed.


No solution is known at this time.
