HP Operations Orchestration 10.x < 10.70 wsExecutionBridgeService Servlet Java Object Deserialization RCE

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 96449


The remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The version of HP Operations Orchestration running on the remote host is 10.x prior to 10.70. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the wsExecutionBridgeService servlet due to improper validation of user-supplied input before deserialization. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a crafted serialized Java object, to execute arbitrary code.

Note that this vulnerability only affects the Community and Enterprise editions.


Upgrade to HP Operations Orchestration version 10.70 or later.
