DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported in VERITAS NetBackup, which can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a format string error in the Java
user-interface authentication service (bpjava-msvc) daemon when
handling the "COMMAND_LOGON_TO_MSERVER" command. The "bpjava-msvc"
daemon runs on both the server and agent.

Successful exploitation allows arbitrary code execution with root or
SYSTEM privileges but requires access to port 13722/tcp.

The vulnerability has been reported in the following versions:
* VERITAS NetBackup Data and Business Center version 4.5FP
* VERITAS NetBackup Data and Business Center version 4.5MP
* VERITAS NetBackup Enterprise/Server/Client version 5.0
