-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of Computer Associates BrightStor ARCserve
Backup, Enterprise Backup, Server Protection Suite and Business
Protection Suite. Authentication is not required to exploit this
vulnerability and both client and servers are affected.

The problem specifically exists within DBASVR.exe, the Backup Agent RPC
Server. This service exposes a number of vulnerable RPC routines through
a TCP endpoint with ID 88435ee0-861a-11ce-b86b-00001b27f656 on port
6071. The most trivial of the exposed vulnerabilities results in an
exploitable stack overflow.

The vulnerable routines include:

/* opcode: 0x01, address: 0x00401A70 */

long sub_401A70 (
[in][string] char * arg_1,
[in][string] char * arg_2, // stack overflow
[out][size_is(8192), length_is(*arg_4)] char * arg_3,
[in, out] long * arg_4

/* opcode: 0x02, address: 0x00401CC0*/

long sub_401CC0 (
[in][string] char * arg_1,
[in][string] char * arg_2, // stack overflow
[in][string] char * arg_3,
[out] long * arg_4

/* opcode: 0x18, address: 0x004041C0*/

long sub_4041C0 (
[in][string] char * arg_1,
[in][string] char * arg_2, // stack overflow
[out] long * arg_3

The first two vulnerable subroutines are the result of inline
strcpy()/memcpy()'s. The third vulnerable subroutine is due to an
insecure call to lstrcat().
