Computer Associates Message Queuing Service Buffer Overflow

Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3284


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host due to a flaw in the Message Queuing service.


The remote version of Computer Associates Message Queuing Service contains a stack overflow in the 'log_security' function that may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host. This version is also prone to :
- Denial of Service on the TCP port 4105
- arbitrary code execution through spoofed CAFT packets
An attacker does not need to be authenticated to exploit this flaw.
