Title: CA Host-Based Intrusion Prevention System SDK kmxfw.sys 
Multiple Vulnerabilities


CA Advisory Date: 2008-08-11


Reported By:
CVE-2008-2926 - Tobias Klein
CVE-2008-3174 - Elazar Broad


Impact: A remote attacker can cause a denial of service or 
possibly execute arbitrary code. 


Summary: CA Host-Based Intrusion Prevention System SDK contains 
two vulnerabilities that can allow an attacker to cause a denial 
of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.  CA has issued 
updates to address the vulnerabilities. The first vulnerability, 
CVE-2008-2926, occurs due to insufficient verification of IOCTL 
requests by the kmxfw.sys driver. A local attacker can send an 
IOCTL request that can cause a system crash or potentially result 
in arbitrary code execution. The second vulnerability, 
CVE-2008-3174, occurs due to insufficient validation by the 
kmxfw.sys driver. An attacker can make a request that can cause a 
system crash.
