HP/H3C and Huawei SNMP User Data Information Disclosure

High Nessus Plugin ID 62759

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


The remote networking device has an information disclosure vulnerability.


The remote host allows SNMP read-only access to either h3c-user.mib or hh3c-user.mib. These MIBs contain information such as usernames, passwords, and user privileges. A remote attacker with a valid read-only community string could exploit this to enumerate usernames and passwords, which could lead to administrative access to the device.


For HP devices, install the appropriate software update to fix this issue. If an update is not available, use one of the workarounds listed in the referenced advisories.
