Description

The remote host is missing AIX PTF U829533, which is related to the security of the package X11.Dt.ToolTalk.

There is a buffer overflow vulnerability in the ToolTalk library libtt.a. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability when the rpc.ttdbserver is enabled in /etc/inetd.conf.

The successful exploitation of this vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code as the root user.

The following libraries and executables are vulnerable :

/usr/dt/lib/libtt.a /usr/dt/bin/rpc.ttdbserver.
