EMC Data Protection Advisor (DPA) contains vulnerabilities that can potentially
be exploited by malicious users to cause denial of service.
Two vulnerabilities have been identified in EMC DPA, which can potentially be
exploited by malicious users to cause denial of service.
1. A NULL pointer dereference can occur if specially crafted data is sent to
the Controller, Listener or Collector process (CVE-2012-0406). This can cause
crashes and denial-of-service.
CVSS Base Score is 7.8 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:C).
2. A long integer overflow can occur if specially crafted data is sent to the
Controller, Listener or Collector process (CVE-2012-0407). This can cause the
affected thread to busy-wait and use 100% CPU.
CVSS Base Score is 5.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P).
The Security Hotfix DPA-14718 for following DPA products contains resolutions
to these issues. Security Hotfixes are available for all affected platforms,
except as noted below.
