                 VERITAS NetBackup (tm) Java GUI Vulnerability
                             [Document ID: 271727]

October 22, 2004 18:00 GMT                                        Number P-020
______________________________________________________________________________
PROBLEM:       Veritas NetBackup privilege escalation vulnerability. 
PLATFORM:      Only when the Java GUI for remote administrator is enabled:
               Veritas Software NetBackup BusinessServer 3.4.0 
               Veritas Software NetBackup BusinessServer 3.4.1 
			   Veritas Software NetBackup BusinessServer 4.5.0 
			   Veritas Software NetBackup DataCenter 3.4.0 
			   Veritas Software NetBackup DataCenter 3.4.1 
               Veritas Software NetBackup DataCenter 4.5.0 
			   Veritas Software NetBackup Enterprise Server 5.1.0 
			   Veritas Software NetBackup Server 5.0.0 
			   Veritas Software NetBackup Server 5.1.0 
DAMAGE:        When the NetBackup Java GUI connects to a server, a process is 
               started on the server called bpjava-susvc. A normal user with 
               access to this server could send specially crafted commands to 
               this process and have those commands executed with root 
               authority. 
SOLUTION:      Currently, a work-around is available to circumvent this 
               exploit by requiring bpjava-susvc to use the no call-back 
               features. Please go to 
               http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/271727.htm for this 
               work-around. 
______________________________________________________________________________
VULNERABILITY  The risk is MEDIUM. A normal user can get root access on the 
ASSESSMENT:    server.
