This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of IBM Tivoli Monitoring Express. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaws exist in the Tivoli Universal Agent Primary Service (TCP 10110), Monitoring Agent for Windows OS - Primary (TCP 6014) and Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server (TCP 14206) services. When a long string is sent to these services, it will result in a heap overflow during a call to a vulnerable function in kde.dll resulting in the ability to execute arbitrary code.
