ESA-2011-003: EMC NetWorker librpc.dll spoofing vulnerability.


EMC Identifier: ESA-2011-003

CVE Identifier: CVE-2011-0321


Severity Rating: CVSS v2 Base Score: 8.5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:C)


Affected products:
EMC NetWorker earlier than 7.5.3.5
EMC NetWorker earlier than 7.6.1.2


Vulnerability Summary:
A vulnerability exists in EMC NetWorker which can be exploited to potentially create a denial of service condition or eavesdrop on process communications.


Vulnerability Details:
EMC Networker uses an RPC library to provide a portmapper service within nsrexecd. The portmapper restricts access for service commands to the localhost. However, the UDP protocol allows malicious users to spoof the source address of the network packet making it appear it originated from the localhost. This potentially may allow  a remote malicious user to unregister existing NetWorker RPC services or register new RPC services.


Problem Resolution:
The following EMC NetWorker products contain resolutions to this issue:


EMC NetWorker version 7.5.3.5
EMC NetWorker version 7.5 SP4 and later
EMC NetWorker version 7.6.1.2 and later


EMC strongly recommends all customers apply the latest patches which contain the resolution to this issue, at the earliest opportunity.
