	This bulletin describes six vulnerabilities in Veritas Backup Exec.

	1. Remote registry access vulnerability CAN-2005-0771
	   An access validation vulnerability in Backup Exec for Windows allows
	   remote attackers to access the Windows registry on the backup server
	   with Administrator privileges.

	2. Remote Agent for Windows buffer overflow CAN-2005-0773
	   The Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Servers contains a buffer
	   overflow vulnerability due to incorrect validation on 
	   authentication requests, allowing a remote attacker to execute 
	   arbitrary code.

	3. Admin Plus Pack remote heap overflow
	   Backup Exec for Windows using the Admin Plus Pack option has a
	   heap overflow vulnerability that may be exploited by an 
	   unauthenticated remote attacker who can connect to the TCP port 
	   on which the Backup Exec service is listening.

	4. Process handle privilege elevation
	   Non-privileged local users on systems where the Backup Exec Remote 
	   Agent for Windows is installed can copy the handle used by the Agent,
	   and thereby execute arbitrary code with Local System privileges.

	5. Web Administration Console buffer overflow
	   The Web Administration Console, which may be installed on the Backup 
	   Exec media server, has a buffer overflow vulnerability when parsing
	   user-provided credentials.

	6. Remote Agent denial of service CAN-2005-0772
	   Two buffer overflows in the Remote Agent for Windows or NetWare 
	   Servers allow unauthenticated remote attackers to cause a denial
	   of service on computers where the Agent is installed. 
	   These vulnerabilities reportedly can not be exploited to execute 
	   arbitrary code. 


	1. A remote attacker can gain Administrator access to the registry 
	   and then use this to gain complete administrative control of the 
	   backup server.

	2. A remote attacker can execute arbitrary code on the computers 
	   where the Remote Agent is installed, and gain administrative 
	   control of these computers.

	3. An unauthenticated remote attacker can execute arbitrary code on
	   the backup server and gain administrative control of the computer.

	4. Local users on computers where the Backup Exec Remote Agent is 
	   installed can gain Local System privileges.

	5. A user of the Web Administration Console can execute arbitrary code
	   on the Backup Exec media server and gain administrative control of
	   the computer.

	6. Unauthenticated attackers can remotely crash the computers which
	   have Backup Exec Remote Agent installed.
