IBM Tivoli Management Framework Endpoint '/addr' Remote Buffer Overflow

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5932
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is running a web server that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The remote host is running IBM Tivoli Endpoint, a component of Tivoli Management Framework.

Versions of IBM Tivoli Endpoint earlier than 4.1.1-LCF-0076 or 4.3.1-LCF-0012LA are potentially affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability because input to the 'opts' parameter of '/addr' is not properly validated. A remote, authenticated attacker could exploit this by sending a malicious POST request to the server, resulting in arbitrary code execution.


Upgrade to Tivoli Endpoint 4.1.1-LCF-0076 / 4.3.1-LCF-0012LA or later. Alternatively, use the workaround described in the IBM advisory.
