Cisco Security Agent Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Release Date: 2007-12-06

CVE ID: CVE-2007-5580

http://www.nsfocus.com/english/homepage/research/0702.htm 

Affected systems & software
==================
 Cisco Security Agent for Windows < 4.5.1.672
 Cisco Security Agent for Windows < 5.0.0.225
 Cisco Security Agent for Windows < 5.1.0.106
 Cisco Security Agent for Windows < 5.2.0.238

Unaffected systems & software
==================

Summary
========
NSFOCUS Security Team discovered a remote buffer overflow vulnerability in 
Cisco Security Agent for Windows which allows remote code execution by sending 
a malicious SMB request. 

Description
===========
Cisco Security Agent is a security software agent that provides threat protection 
for server and desktop computing systems. 

A driver bundled with Cisco Security Agent for Windows does not correctly 
check the data length provided by users when processing a SMB packet, which 
might trigger a stack buffer overflow in the system kernel. A remote attacker 
might cause system with CSA installed to restart or BSOD. By sending carefully 
crafted data an attacker might cause remote code execution, thus gains complete 
control over the system. 

By default CSA allows access to TCP ports 139 and 445. After establishing a 
session to TCP ports 139 and 445, an attacker can complete an exploitation 
without any authentication simply by sending a single packet. 

Cisco Security Agent for Windows version 5.2.0.225 and prior are affected. 
Other Cisco software that uses CSA component is also affected.

Workaround
============
* Restrict access to TCP ports 139 and 445.
