Security specialist Symantec issued a critical update on Tuesday for its Veritas NetBackup 6.0 PureDisk Remote Office Edition, whose vulnerabilities could allow attackers to gain remote control over a user's system.
Symantec issued the security update to address buffer overflow vulnerabilities found in the HTML-embedded scripting language PHP, which is used in its PureDisk software, according to Symantec's security advisory.
Symantec encountered similar buffer overflow. The concerns surrounding that problem were compounded when a security organization publicly released computer code that could exploit the flaws.
In this latest case with PureDisk, however, Symantec says it is not aware of any publicly available exploit code.
