high Nessus Plugin ID 59330
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.


A management service on the remote host has a command injection vulnerability.


The version of SAN/iQ running on the remote host has a command injection vulnerability. The hydra service, used for remote management and configuration, does not properly sanitize untrusted input. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary commands as root. Authentication is required, but can be bypassed easily by using default, hard-coded credentials.


Upgrade to HP SAN/iQ 9.5 or later.
