CA - Patches Are Now Available To Address CA Message Queuing Vulnerabilities


Detail
====== 

Computer Associates have issued a security notice that includes fixes for 
several vulnerabilities in the CA Message Queuing software.

The following are extracts from the notice:

"The CA Customer Support team has recently become aware of several vulnerability issues 
in the CA Message Queuing (CAM / CAFT) software:

   *  The CAM TCP port is potentially vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. 
   *  Buffer overflow conditions can potentially allow arbitrary code to be executed 
      remotely with elevated privileges. 
   *  Potential to launch a spoof CAFT and allow arbitrary commands to be executed with 
      elevated privileges."

"This affects all versions of the CA Message Queuing software prior to v1.07 Build 220_13 
and v1.11 Build 29_13 on the specified platforms."
