|CVSS SCORE||10, (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)|
The flaw exists within the tm1admsd.exe component. This process listens on TCP port 5498 by default. Requests to the service include a request type field, a data length field, and a data field. Multiple request types (opcodes) fail to validate user supplied length and data fields before copying their contents to a fixed length buffer on the stack. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code under the context of the system.
IBM has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
