Trend troubled by further flaw

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Feb 22, 2007

Second vulnerability unveiled this month only affects server products.

Less than two weeks after details of a UPX vulnerability affecting many of Trend Micro's products were released, along with fixes for the flaw, another problem and potential security hole has been discovered in the security company's products.

This time only server-based products, Trend's ServerProtect range, are affected, and it is thought only local users can take advantage of possible buffer overflows to run code with system privileges. Patches have been released to fix the flaw on English-language, Windows versions of the software, with other languages due soon, while two other platforms supported by the products and at risk from the vulnerability will not be patched until late next month.

Trend's announcement of the problem is here, while more technical detail is available from TippingPoint, here and here. A Secunia advisory is here.
