by platon on June 1st, 2001 HP OpenView Network Node Manager (NNM) is a system management software package distributed by HP. It is designed for use on enterprise systems, and offers remote administrative facilities...

A problem in the software could allow a local user elevated privileges. Due to the unsafe handling of command line input by the Event Correlation Services daemon (ecsd), a buffer overflow makes it possible to overwrite stack variables, including the return address.

This vulnerability was originally announced to Bugtraq by Jonas Eriksson on May 23, 2001.
