ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus < build 6122 Command Injection

medium Nessus Plugin ID 172490


A web application is affected by a command injection vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version, the ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus application running on the remote host is prior to build 6122. It is, therefore, affected by a command injection vulnerability which allows a remote authenticated administrator to execute arbitrary operating OS commands as SYSTEM via the policy custom script feature. Due to the use of a default administrator password, attackers may be able to abuse this functionality with minimal effort.
Additionally, a remote and partially authenticated attacker may be able to inject arbitrary commands into the custom script due to an unsanitized password field.

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


Upgrade to ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus build 6122 or later.
