Title: HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring Software 'DoubleTake.exe' Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Severity: HIGH
Description:

HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring Software (SWSM) is a host-based replication and failover solution for enterprises.

SWSM is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability that allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of the affected application.

The problem occurs in the 'DoubleTake.exe' process when handling an encoded authentication request. Specifically, a buffer overflow occurs when the process copies user-supplied login information (at least 256 bytes) into a fixed-length stack buffer.

The issue affects SWSM 4.5 SP1.
Affected Products:

* Double-Take Software Double-Take 4.5.0.1629
* HP HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring Software 4.5 SP1
