A log collection and management system installed on the remote host is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
According to its self-reported version number, the version of HP
ArcSight Logger installed on the remote host is prior to 6.0 P2. It
is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- An authorization bypass vulnerability exists that allows
an authenticated, remote attacker to bypass
authorization checks and perform unauthorized actions.
- A security bypass vulnerability exists in the SOAP
interface due to a failure to properly log and lockout
failed login attempts. A remote attacker can exploit
this to perform a brute-force attack. (CVE-2015-6029)
- A file command handling local privilege escalation
vulnerability exists due to files owned by the arcsight
user being executed with root privileges. A local
attacker can exploit this to run commands to gain
elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-6030)
