Rule:

--
Sid:
2401

--
Summary:
This event is generated when an attempt is made to exploit a known
vulnerability in ISS RealSecure and BlackICE products.

--
Impact:
Serious. Execution of arbitrary code, DoS.

--
Detailed Information:
A buffer overflow condition in the ISS Analysis Module can be triggered
by an attacker sending a single SMB packet containing an AccountName
greater than 300 bytes. It is possible for an attacker to exploit this
condition by sending a specially crafted packet to a host serving network shares.

When the systems running one of the affected ISS products decodes the
SMB data, exploit code may be included and executed on the machine with 
system level privileges. Alternatively, the malformed data may cause the service to become 
unresponsive and cause a DoS condition.

Sensors under attack will display "PAM_internal_error" as a message on
the console.

Sucessful exploitation of this issue could present an attacker with the 
opportunity to execute code of their choosing on the target host with system
privileges. It is also possible for a Denial of Service (DoS) condition to 
be caused by an attacker attempting to exploit this condition.

--
Affected Systems:
	RealSecure Network 7.0, XPU 20.15 through 22.9
	Real Secure Server Sensor 7.0 XPU 20.16 through 22.9
	Proventia A Series XPU 20.15 through 22.9
	Proventia G Series XPU 22.3 through 22.9
	Proventia M Series XPU 1.3 through 1.7
	RealSecure Desktop 7.0 eba through ebh
	RealSecure Desktop 3.6 ebr through ecb
	RealSecure Guard 3.6 ebr through ecb
	RealSecure Sentry 3.6 ebr through ecb
	BlackICE PC Protection 3.6 cbr through ccb
	BlackICE Server Protection 3.6 cbr through ccb

--
Attack Scenarios:
An attacker may use this vulnerability to disable ISS sensors on a
network or potentially use it to gain control of a machine running one
of the affected products.

--
Ease of Attack:
Simple.

--
False Positives:
None known.

--
False Negatives:
This rule may not generate an alert if a legitimate SMB request contains a password

--
Corrective Action:
Apply the appropriate vendor supplied patches.
