Vulnerability Note VU#987308
HP LoadRunner buffer overflow vulnerability


HP LoadRunner contains a buffer overflow vulnerability when parsing Virtual 
User script files.

I. Description

According to HP's website: HP LoadRunner software is the industry standard for 
performance validation. It allows you to prevent application performance 
problems by detecting bottlenecks before a new system or upgrade is deployed. 
HP LoadRunner contains a buffer overflow vulnerability when parsing Virtual 
User script (.usr) files containing long strings for directives, causing the 
HP LoadRunner application to crash.

II. Impact

An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by tricking a user into opening a 
crafted .usr file, causing HP LoadRunner to crash leading to possible 
execution of arbitrary code.

III. Solution

HP has stated they are planning to release a patch to address this 
vulnerability. As of this writing the patch has not been released.
