The remote web server is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The HP Universal Configuration Management Database (UCMDB) Server running on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to unsafe deserialize calls of unauthenticated Java objects to the Apache Commons BeanUtils library. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a crafted POST request, to execute arbitrary code on the target host.
