Risk Rating

High


Platform

Windows


Affected Products

CA ARCserve D2D r15


How to determine if the installation is affected

Using Windows Explorer, go to the directory
"<D2D_HOME>\TOMCAT\webapps\WebServiceImpl", and look for the existence
of a folder called "axis2-web".


Solution

A permanent solution will be posted soon at https://support.ca.com/

In the meantime, the following workaround can be implemented to
address the vulnerability.

1. Stop "CA ARCserve D2D Web Service" from service control manager.

2. Go to the directory "<D2D_HOME>\TOMCAT\webapps\WebServiceImpl",
and remove the folder "axis2-web".

3. Edit "<D2D_HOME>\TOMCAT\webapps\WebServiceImpl\WEB-INF\web.xml",
and remove the content of AxisAdminServlet's servlet and servlet
mapping.

The content to remove will look like the text below:

- <servlet>
<display-name>Apache-Axis Admin Servlet Web Admin</display-name>
<servlet-name>AxisAdminServlet</servlet-name>

<servlet-class>org.apache.axis2.transport.http.AxisAdminServlet</servlet
-class>
<load-on-startup>100</load-on-startup>
</servlet>
- <servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>AxisAdminServlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/axis2-admin/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

4. Change the username and password parameters in the axis2.xml file
to stronger credentials that conform to your organization's
password policies.
"<D2D_HOME>\TOMCAT\webapps\WebServiceImpl\WEB-INF\conf\axis2.xml"

<parameter name="userName">admin</parameter>
<parameter name="password">axis2</parameter>

5. Start "CA ARCserve D2D Web Service".
