HP LaserJet PJL Interface Directory Traversal (HPSBPI02575)

high Nessus Plugin ID 69480
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 is affected by a traversal vulnerability.


The remote host's PJL interface fails to sanitize input to the 'name' parameter of the 'fsdirlist' command before using it.

An attacker can leverage this issue using a directory traversal sequence to view arbitrary files on the affected host within the context of the PJL service. Information harvested may aid in launching further attacks.


Set a PJL password or disable file system access via the PJL interface.
