- Metasploit Modules Related To CVE-2008-4828

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Express RCA Service Buffer Overflow
This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Express Remote Client Agent service. By sending a "dicuGetIdentify" request packet containing a long NodeName parameter, an attacker can execute arbitrary code. NOTE: this exploit first connects to the CAD service to start the RCA service and obtain the port number on which it runs. This service does not restart.
