1. Impact

   Security vulnerabilities in the Sun StorEdge Enterprise Backup
   Software may result in one or both of the following issues:

   1. A remote unauthorized user may be able to circumvent the
   authentication procedure in the Sun StorEdge Enterprise Backup
   Software, and also the database server which forms part of the
   software, to gain elevated privileges, execute arbitrary commands, or
   cause a denial of service (DoS) to the backup server. The remote user
   may be able to view files backed up by the software from other hosts,
   regardless of the permissions, and may be able to use the server to
   run arbitrary commands on other hosts running as backup clients.

   In addition, a local unprivileged user may be able to gain elevated
   privileges on a system running the StorEdge Enterprise Backup
   Software.

   This issue is referenced in the following documents:
     * http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2005-0357
     * http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/606857
     * http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2005-0358
     * http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/407641

   2. A remote unauthorized user may be able to access the port mapping
   configuration of the Sun StorEdge Enterprise Backup server to cause a
   denial of backup service to the backup server or reconfigure the port
   mappings to achieve goals such as eavesdropping on network
   communication.

   This issue is referenced in the following documents:
     * http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2005-0359
     * http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/801089
