HP LoadRunner < 11.52 SSL Connection Handling Stack Buffer Overflow RCE

high Nessus Plugin ID 69424
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.


The remote host has a software performance testing application running that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The version of HP LoadRunner running on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to a failure to validate the length of data before copying it into a fixed-size buffer when handling connections using SSL. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to cause a stack-based buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.


Upgrade to HP LoadRunner 11.52 or later.
