Trend Micro ServerProtect Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities
iDefense Security Advisory 08.21.07
Aug 21, 2007
Trend Micro Inc.'s ServerProtect is an anti-virus software for Microsoft
Windows and Novell NetWare servers. It enables network administrators to
manage multiple deployments from a single management console. For more

Remote exploitation of multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities in Trend
Micro Inc.'s ServerProtect anti-virus software could allow attackers to
execute arbitrary code with system level privilege.
The Trend ServerProtect service (SpntSvc.exe) handles RPC requests on
TCP port 5168 with interface uuid 25288888-bd5b-11d1-9d53-0080c83a5c2c.
This service utilizes the StRpcSrv.dll, Stcommon.dll, Eng50.dll and
Notification.dll libraries to service various RPC requests.
Three buffer overflows exist with the StRpcSrv.dll library. The first
two vulnerabilities exist within the RPCFN_ENG_NewManualScan and
RPCFN_ENG_TimedNewManualScan functions. These functions copy
user-supplied data into a fixed-size heap buffer without performing
proper bounds checking. The third problem exists within the
RPCFN_SetComputerName function. This function copies user-supplied data
into a fixed-size stack buffer using the MultiByteToWideChar() function
without correctly specifying the output buffer length.
Two stack-based buffer overflows exist within the Stcommon.dll library.
These problems specifically exist within the
RPCFN_OldCMON_SetSvcImpersonateUser functions. These functions copy
user-supplied data into a fixed-size stack buffer without performing
proper bounds checking.
Two buffer overflows exist within the Eng50.dll library. These two
issues exist within the ENG_TakeActioinOnAFile and
RPCFN_ENG_AddTaskExportLogItem functions. Both of these functions copy
user-supplied data into fixed-size buffers without performing proper
bounds checking. The ENG_TakeActioinOnAFile function uses a buffer
stored on the heap as the destination, where as the
RPCFN_ENG_AddTaskExportLogItem function uses a buffer stored in stack
A stack-based buffer overflow exists within the Notification.dll
library. This vulnerability specifically exists in the
NTF_SetPagerNotifyConfig function. This function copies user-supplied
data into a fixed-size stack buffer without performing proper bounds
The Trend ServerProtect Agent service handles RPC requests on TCP port
3628 with interface uuid 25288888-bd5b-11d1-9d53-0080c83a5c2c. A
stack-based buffer overflow has been found to exist within the
RPCFN_CopyAUSrc function. This function copies user-supplied data into
a fixed-size stack buffer.
Exploitation allows attackers to execute arbitrary code with system
Exploitation requires that attackers send specially crafted RPC requests
to the Trend ServerProtect or Trend ServerProtect Agent services.
iDefense has confirmed the existence of these vulnerabilities in
ServerProtect for Windows 5.58 Build 1176 (Security Patch 3). Previous
versions, as well as versions for other platforms, are suspected to be
iDefense is currently unaware of any workarounds for this issue.
