SAP MaxDB serv.exe buffer overflow
|maxdb-serv-bo (56950)||High Risk|
SAP MaxDB is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the serv.exe process. By sending specially-crafted handshake packets to TCP port 7210, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with SYSTEM privileges or cause the application to crash.
Current SAP customers should refer to SAP Note 1409425 for patch information, available from the SAP Web site (login required). See References.
