VERITAS Backup Exec Server (beserver.exe) contains a flaw that may allow a remote attacker to modify the Windows registry with administrative level permissions. The issue is due to RPC calls not properly authenticating callers of methods on TCP port 6106. This may allow an attacker to modify the registry of a host leading to a completely compromise.
