Attack: HP Intelligent Management Centre BO

Severity: High

This attack could pose a serious security threat. You should take immediate action to stop any damage or prevent further damage from happening.

Description

This signature detects attempts to exploit a stack buffer overflow in HP Intelligent Management Centre.

Additional Information

HP Intelligent Management Center is a network management application.

The HP Intelligent Management Center is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data before copying it to an insufficiently sized buffer. Specifically, this issue affects the 'uam.exe' component listening on UDP port 1811.

Successful exploits allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the SYSTEM user. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.
