Medium Nessus Plugin ID 91973
SynopsisA software performance testing application running on the remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionThe Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) LoadRunner Virtual Table Server application running on the remote host is affected by a flaw in the import_csv feature due to a failure to restrict file paths sent to an unlink call. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to delete arbitrary files on the remote system, resulting in a denial of service condition.
Note that LoadRunner reportedly is affected by other vulnerabilities, which can result in a denial of service or remote code execution;
however, Nessus has not tested for these.
