A remote user can cause the tape engine service to crash [CVE-2008-4398].

A remote user can cause the database engine service to crash [CVE-2008-4399].

A remote user can trigger a flaw in the processing of authentication credentials to cause multiple services to crash [CVE-2008-4400].

CA Server Protection Suite r2, CA Business Protection Suite r2, CA Business Protection Suite for Microsoft Small Business Server Standard Edition r2, and CA Business Protection Suite for Microsoft Small Business Server Premium Edition r2 are also affected.

Title: CA ARCserve Backup Multiple Vulnerabilities


CA Advisory Date: 2008-10-09


Reported By:
Haifei Li of Fortinet's FortiGuard Global Security Research Team
Vulnerability Research Team of Assurent Secure Technologies, a 
   TELUS Company
Greg Linares of eEye Digital Security


Impact: A remote attacker can cause a denial of service or 
possibly execute arbitrary code.


Summary: CA ARCserve Backup contains multiple vulnerabilities that 
can allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service or 
possibly execute arbitrary code. CA has issued patches to address 
the vulnerabilities. The first vulnerability, CVE-2008-4397, 
occurs due to insufficient validation of certain RPC call 
parameters by the message engine service. An attacker can exploit 
a directory traversal vulnerability to execute arbitrary commands. 
The second vulnerability, CVE-2008-4398, occurs due to 
insufficient validation by the tape engine service. An attacker 
can make a request that will crash the service. The third 
vulnerability, CVE-2008-4399, occurs due to insufficient 
validation by the database engine service. An attacker can make a 
request that will crash the service. The fourth vulnerability, 
CVE-2008-4400, occurs due to insufficient validation of 
authentication credentials. An attacker can make a request that 
will crash multiple services. Note that these issues only affect 
the base product.
