The remote HP Operations Manager i host is affected by an XML external entity (XXE) vulnerability in the bundled version of Apache Flex BlazeDS due to an incorrectly configured XML parser accepting XML external entities from an untrusted source. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted XML file, to read and disclose arbitrary files.
