IBM Tivoli Management Framework Endpoint '/addr' Remote Buffer Overflow
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5932
SynopsisThe remote host is running a web server that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionThe 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.
SolutionUpgrade to Tivoli Endpoint 4.1.1-LCF-0076 / 4.3.1-LCF-0012LA or later. Alternatively, use the workaround described in the IBM advisory.
