Trend Micro ServerProtect Buffer Overflows and Other Bugs Permit Remote Code Execution, Denial of Service, and File Disclosure
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015358
SecurityTracker URL:
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-1928, CVE-2005-1929, CVE-2005-1930   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Dec 14 2005
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 5.58
Description:   iDEFENSE reported several vulnerabilities in Trend Micro ServerProtect. A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system. A remote user can view files on the target system. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.

The 'rptserver.asp' script does not properly validate user-supplied input in the IMAGE parameter [CVE-2005-1930]. A remote user can supply a specially crafted parameter value containing directory traversal characters to view the contents of arbitrary files on the target system.

The 'isaNVWRequest.dll' and 'relay.dll' components contain a buffer overflow [CVE-2005-1929]. A remote user can supply a specially crafted HTTP POST request to trigger a heap overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

A remote user can send specially crafted packets containing the string "\x21\x43\x65\x87" to port 5005 on the EarthAgent to trigger a memory leak [CVE-2005-1928]. This can cause the system to consume all available CPU resources. A remote user can repeatedly send these packets to cause the target service to consume all available memory on the target system.

The vendor was notified on June 3, 2005.

The original advisories are available at:

Impact:   A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system.

A remote user can cause denial of service conditions on the target system.

A remote user can view files on the target system.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix ( for the EarthAgent denial of service vulnerability, described at:

No fix was available at the time of this entry for the other vulnerabilities.

[The vendor has reportedly issued "manual solutions" for the buffer overflow vulnerabilities, available from technical support.]

Trend Micro ServerProtect Crystal Reports ReportServer File Disclosure

iDefense Security Advisory 12.14.05
December 14, 2005


Trend Micro Inc.'s ServerProtect provides antivirus scanning with
centralized management of virus outbreaks, scanning, patter file
updates, notifications and remote installations. More information about
the product set is available at:


Remote exploitation of an input validation vulnerability in Trend Micro
Inc.'s ServerProtect Management Console allows remote attackers to view
the contents of arbitrary files on the underlying system.

The problem specifically exists within the handling of the IMAGE
parameter in the script rptserver.asp. The vulnerable area of code is
outlined in the following snippet:

 Set session("oEMF") = Server.CreateObject("CREmfgen.CREmfgen.2")
 Call ParseQS()
 if IMAGE <> "" then
  Call session("oEMF").StreamImage(IMAGE, DEL)
 end if

An attacker can utilize directory traversal modifiers to traverse
outside the system temporary directory and access any file on the same


Successful exploitation of the described vulnerability allows remote
attackers to view the contents of arbitrary files on the underlying
system. Exploitation does not require credentials thereby exacerbating
the impact of this vulnerability.


iDefense has confirmed the existence of this vulnerability in Trend
Micro ServerProtect for Windows Management Console 5.58 running with
Trend Micro Control Manager 2.5/3.0 and Trend Micro Damage Cleanup
Server 1.1. It is suspected that earlier versions and versions for other
platforms are vulnerable as well.


Employ firewalls, access control lists or other TCP/UDP restriction
mechanism to limit access to the vulnerable system on the configured
port, generally TCP port 80.


"Trend Micro has become aware of a vulnerability related to Crystal
Report, a reporting component found in Trend Micro Control Manager (v2.5
and v3.0). Under certain conditions, arbitrary files on the
ReportServer volume inside Trend Micro Control Manager software could be
viewed or accessed remotely. Trend Micro is currently consulting with
Crystal Report regarding permanent solutions to this reporting
component. A temporary workaround solution can be recommended through
contacting Trend Micro customer and technical support."


The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned the
name CVE-2005-1930 to this issue. This is a candidate for inclusion in
the CVE list (, which standardizes names for
security problems.
