HP LoadRunner < 11.52 SSL Connection Handling Stack Buffer Overflow RCE

high Nessus Plugin ID 69424
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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 7.4


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.
