A web application running on the remote host is affected by an authentication bypass vulnerability.


The HPE Edgeline Infrastructure Manager running on the remote host Manager is affected by an authentication bypass vulnerability due to improper access control to an URL that resets the Administrator password. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted HTTP messages, to reset the Administrator and root passwords. The attacker can then SSH to the remote host as root.
