Veritas Backup Denial of Service Vulnerability

Backup is a data protection software by Veritas. Backup is subject to a denial of service.

Veritas offers a linux agent which listens on port 8192. If an attacker connects to this service, but does not send any data, the service will block until the connection is terminated. The result is a denial of service. This condition is likely due to improper handling of network i/o.

A restart of this service is required in order to gain normal functionality.
