Rocket Software UniVerse < 10.3.9 Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5741


The remote host contains a database application that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote host has Rocket Software UniVerse installed.

Versions of UniVerse earlier than 10.3.9 are potentially affected by a remote code execution vulnerability because the application fails to properly validate a size value in a RPC packet header before using it to determine the number of bytes to receive. A remote unauthenticated attacker, exploiting this flaw, could execute arbitrary code on the remote host with SYSTEM level privileges.


Upgrade to UniVerse 10.3.9 or later.
