-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Reference: BID 14355, http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/14355,
Risk: Very Low to minimal
Affected product: Veritas NetBackup minimal impact only
This issue does NOT affect Veritas Backup Exec
Symantec engineers have thoroughly reviewed the issue as posted to
the bugtraq mailing list.
Passing a CONFIG request with a malformed timestamp in the ndmpheader
does result in a segment fault killing the current listening process
spawned when the connection attempt is made. However, the only
process affected is the child process spawned separately for each
connection attempt by the underlying agent. The agent is NOT
impacted and will continue to spawn processes to handle additional
connection requests as they are received. Although this minor issue
causes no functionality problems with the product, Symantec engineers
are reviewing options to address it in future updates.
