HP Mercury LoadRunner Agent Remote Command Execution

critical Nessus Plugin ID 46255
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.


It is possible to execute arbitrary commands on the remote system.


The version of the LoadRunner Agent installed on the remote host allows an unauthorized attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the remote system provided 'Secure Channel' is disabled (which is disabled by default).


Upgrade to HP LoadRunner v9.50, and refer to the documentation to enable 'Secure Channel' communication.
