VULNERABILITY DETAILS

This vulnerability allows attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Computer Associates eTrust Secure Content Manager. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists in the eTrust Common Services Transport (ECSQdmn.exe) running on port 1882. When making a request to this service a user supplied DWORD value is used in a memory copy operation. Due to the lack of bounds checking an integer can be improperly calculated leading to a heap overflow.
