Computer Associates BrightStor ARCserve Backup v11 Discovery Service
Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

iDEFENSE Security Advisory 02.09.05

February 09, 2005

I. BACKGROUND

BrightStor ARCserve Backup for Windows delivers backup and restore
protection for all Windows server systems as well as Windows, Linux,
Mac OS X and UNIX client environments.

http://www3.ca.com/Solutions/ProductFamily.asp?ID=115

II. DESCRIPTION

Remote exploitation of a buffer overflow vulnerability in Computer
Associates International Inc's BrightStor ARCserve Backup v11 Discovery
Service may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The BrightStor software will automatically detect other BrightStor
(ARCserve) servers on the local network. It does this by sending UDP
probe messages to the broadcast address on the network. Each system
running the BrightStor software listens for these probes and replies
back to IP address embedded in the data of the packet. The Discovery
service listens on UDP port 41524 for these probe requests.

III. ANALYSIS

When a UDP probe is received by the Discovery Service, a stack overflow
can occur if the data is larger than the temporary buffer. The
recvfrom() call made by the service accepts up to 4096 bytes, however
the buffer it is copied to is slightly less than 1000 bytes. The return
address can be overwritten by sending a message that is at least 967
bytes long. As the service runs as 'Local System', exploitation of this
vulnerability allows running arbitrary code with superuser privileges.

IV. DETECTION

Computer Associates BrightStor ARCserve Backup v11 (Win32) has been
confirmed vulnerable.

V. WORKAROUND

Employ firewalls, access control lists or other TCP/UDP restriction
mechanism to limit access to systems and services.
