Retrospect Client < 6.5.138 / 7.0.109 Malformed Packet DoS



The remote backup client is susceptible to denial of service attacks.


According to its version number, the installed instance of Retrospect Client for Windows reportedly will stop working if it receives a packet starting with a specially-crafted sequence of bytes. An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to leverage this flaw to prevent the affected host from being backed up.


Upgrade to version 6.5.138, 7.0.109 or higher.
