Summary: 
EMC Data Protection Advisor (DPA) contains vulnerabilities that can potentially be exploited by malicious users to cause denial of service. 

Details:  
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).
