TSRT-06-13: HP OpenView Client Configuration Manager Device Code
            Execution Vulnerability

November  8, 2006

-- CVE ID:

-- Affected Vendor:

-- Affected Products:
OpenView Client Configuration Manager 1.0

-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable device installations of HP OpenView Client Configuraton
Manager (CCM). Authentication is not required to exploit this
vulnerability. The CCM server is not affected.

The specific flaw exists within the Radia Notify Daemon, radexecd.exe,
which binds to TCP port 3465 on default CCM device installs. The
vulnerable daemon expects to receive data in the following format:


Where 'port' specifies a connect back port on the connecting client.
Due to a design flaw a correct username and password is not required in
order to execute arbitrary commands within the radexecd.exe install
directory. This exposes at least two pre-authentication issues. The
first, allows attackers to reboot affected devices by launching
radbootw.exe, which reboots the system without any further prompts. The
second, allows attackers to generate an arbitrary file by launching
radcrecv.exe. radcrecv will listen to an arbitrary port as specified on
the command line and receive files via multicast download. The filename
and contents can be specified by the attacker and is saved to the same
directory as radexecd.exe. Once a malicious file has been generated, it
can then be launched as before.
