HP LaserJet PJL Interface Directory Traversal (HPSBPI02575)

high Nessus Plugin ID 69480
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: 4.4


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.
