New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) server's web interface is affected by multiple vulnerabilities


According to its self-reported version, the HP Integrated Lights-Out server running on the remote host is prior to 2.70 / 1.40a for iLO 4 / iLO 5 respectively. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:
- A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input before returning it to users. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to click a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2018-7117, CVE-2019-11982)

- A buffer overflow condition exists in the command line interface component of HPE iLO. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-11983)


For HP Integrated Lights-Out 4 (iLO 4) upgrade firmware to version 2.70 or later. For HP Integrated Lights-Out 5 (iLO 5) upgrade firmware to version 1.40a or later.
