Zero Day Initiative Advisory 12-119

Zero Day Initiative Advisory 12-119
Posted Jul 13, 2012
Authored by Tipping Point | Site zerodayinitiative.com

Zero Day Initiative Advisory 12-119 - This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of EMC Autostart. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability. The specific flaw exists within the ftAgent.exe service, which listens by default on TCP port 8045. When handling messages with opcode 65 (0x41) and subcode 00, the vulnerable function uses a uninitialized stack variable in calculating a memory pointer. Also, the function uses signed extension and signed comparison when checking the uninitialized stack variable, which allows arbitrary negative values to bypass the check. This could result in corruption of a controlled memory location, which can be leveraged to execute code under the context of the SYSTEM user.

- -- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of EMC Autostart. Authentication is not required

The specific flaw exists within the ftAgent.exe service, which listens by
default on TCP port 8045. When handling messages with opcode 65 (0x41) and
subcode 00, the vulnerable function uses a uninitialized stack variable in
calculating a memory pointer. Also, the function uses signed extension and
signed comparison when checking the uninitialized stack variable, which
allows arbitrary negative values to bypass the check. This could result in
corruption of a controlled memory location, which can be leveraged to
execute code under the context of the SYSTEM user.
