Security Bulletin: OpenSLP vulnerability affects IBM SAN Volume Controller, IBM Storwize, IBM Spectrum Virtualize and IBM FlashSystem products

Description

## Summary A vulnerability in OpenSLP affects IBM SAN Volume Controller, IBM Storwize V7000, V5000, V5100, V3700 and V3500, IBM Spectrum Virtualize Software, IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud and IBM FlashSystem V9000 and 9100 family products. The applicable vulnerability is CVE-2019-5544. ## Vulnerability Details **CVEID: **[CVE-2019-5544](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-5544>) **DESCRIPTION: **OpenSLP, as used in Vmware used in ESXi and the Horizon DaaS appliances, is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by slpd_process.c. By sending a specially-crafted request, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition on the system. CVSS Base score: 9.8 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/172708](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/172708>) for the current score.
