Computer Associates has issued security patches to address buffer overflow vulnerabilities in its CA Licence software, a component included in a number of its enterprise products operating on proprietary and open-source platforms.

Buffer overflow vulnerabilities can potentially allow malicious code to be inserted and executed remotely.

CA said the problem affected all versions of CA Licence software from version 1.53 to version 1.61.8 on a variety of platforms. CA said its customers should upgrade to CA Licence version 1.61.9 or higher.

CA said it had been working in conjunction with internet security companies eEye Digital Security and iDEFENSE on the problem.
