Atstake Security Advisory A072204-1 - A buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered in HP's implementation of the DCE endpoint mapper (epmap) which listens by default on TCP port 135. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the targeted system with the privileges of the DCED process which is typically run as the root user.

Security Advisory

Advisory Name: HP dced Remote Command Execution
Release Date: 07/22/2004
Application: dced
Platform: HPUX 11
HP Tru64
HP OpenVMS
Severity: A remote attacker can execute arbitrary commands
Authors: Jeremy Jethro [jjethro@si.rr.com]
Vendor Status: Vendor has patches
CVE Candidate: CAN-2004-0716
Reference: www.atstake.com/research/advisories/2004/a072204-1.txt


Overview:

A buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered in HP's implementation
of the DCE endpoint mapper (epmap) which listens by default on TCP
port 135. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow
an attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the targeted system
with the privileges of the DCED process which is typically run as
the root user.


Details:

There is a buffer overflow in HP's DCED implementation that can be
triggered by specifying a small fragment length, and sending a large
amount of stub data.

A Nessus (NASL) script that can detect vulnerable DCED daemons will
be released 30 days after the publication of this advisory.
