ManageEngine PAM360 < 5.5 Build 5510 RCE

critical Nessus Plugin ID 166057


The remote host is running a web application affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote host is running a version of ManageEngine PAM360 prior to 5.5 Build 5510. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass authentication and execute arbitrary commands on the remote host.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to ManageEngine PAM360 version 5.5 Build 5510 or later.
