In brief Computer Associates [CA] has issued patches to fix security flaws involving its Message Queuing software that affect many of its products. A trio of security bugs with the middleware leave a wide range of security and systems management suites from CA open to a variety of denial of service attacks, security clearing house Secunia warns. One of the three flaws creates a means for hackers to run malicious code on vulnerable systems.

The vulnerabilities affect versions of CA's Message Queuing software prior to version 1.07 Build 220_13 and 1.11 Build 29_13. Linux, Unix and Windows version of CA's software application are all at risk. Sys admins are urged to obtain patches available via links to CA's advisory, which provides a full list of products that need security updates. ®
