Synopsis

The power management application installed on the remote host has multiple vulnerabilities.

 

Vulnerability Description

The installed version of HP Power Manager is less than 4.2.10, and as such has the following vulnerabilities:

  • Adequate bounds checking is not performed on the 'Login' parameter of the login page, which could lead to a buffer overflow. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code as SYSTEM. (CVE-2009-2685)
  • Adequate bounds checking is not performed on the 'fileName' or 'LogType' parameters of 'formExportDataLogs', which could lead to a buffer overflow. A remote, authenticated attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code as SYSTEM. (CVE-2009-3999)
  • The 'fileName' parameter of 'formExportDataLogs' has a directory traversal vulnerability. A remote, authenticated attacker could exploit this to overwrite arbitrary files with almost arbitrary data. This could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution as SYSTEM. (CVE-2009-4000)

 

Solution

Upgrade to HP Power Manager 4.2.10 or later.
