CA has become aware of two vulnerabilities in the CA Message Queuing

(CAM / CAFT) software distributed with some CA products that makes them susceptible to Denial-of-Service (DOS) attacks.

(PresseBox) ( Darmstadt, )
Patches are now available and CA recommends all customers install the patch as soon as possible. Details of the vulnerability follow:

What is the vulnerability:
The following security vulnerability issues have been identified in the CA Message Queuing (CAM / CAFT) software; CAM is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack when a specially crafted message is received on TCP port 4105.
CAM is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) through the spoofing of CAM control messages. For clarity; CAM is a messaging sub-component which provides a "store and forward"
messaging framework for applications. A number of CA applications now use CAM for their messaging requirements. CAFT is an application, supplied with CAM, which utilises CAM for file transfers. CAFT is driven by messages it receives from CAM enabled applications. A full list of affected CA products may be found below.

What is the potential impact:
The vulnerability may be exploited causing a Denial of Service attack (loss of functionality) on the affected platform. CAM/CAFT is a common component of various CA products (refer list below) which are normally deployed behind a corporate firewall. Therefore this vulnerability is NOT regarded as having the potential to cause widespread problems for independent machines deployed on the general internet.

What is the status of this vulnerability:
CA has made patches available for all affected products. These patches are independent of the CA Software that installed CAM - simply select the patch appropriate to the platform, and the installed version of CAM, and follow the patch application instructions. You should also review the product home pages, below, for any additional product specific instructions .
