HPE LoadRunner Virtual Table Server import_csv Remote File Deletion DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

A software performance testing application running on the remote host
is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description :

The Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) LoadRunner Virtual Table Server
application running on the remote host is affected by a flaw in the
import_csv feature due to a failure to restrict file paths sent to an
unlink call. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
delete arbitrary files on the remote system, resulting in a denial of
service condition.

Note that LoadRunner reportedly is affected by other vulnerabilities,
which can result in a denial of service or remote code execution;
however, Nessus has not tested for these.
