SolarWinds Log and Event Manager < 6.2.0 Multiple Remote Command Execution Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 86425


The remote web application is affected by multiple remote command execution vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the SolarWinds Log and Event Manager installed on the remote host is prior to version 6.2.0.
It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the messagebroker/nonsecurestreamingamf service when using the traceroute functionality. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary commands on managed hosts using the LEM agent connected to the Log and Event Manager. (CVE-2015-7839)

- A flaw exists in the command line management console (CMC) related to the Ping feature. A remote attacker can exploit this, by using specially crafted text in response to the prompts, to open a bash shell, thus allowing the execution of arbitrary commands.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to SolarWinds Log and Event Manager version 6.2.0 or later.
