IBM Spectrum Protect Client VM Backup INCLUDE.VMTSMVSS Option Credentials Disclosure
Low Nessus Plugin ID 96484
SynopsisA client application installed on the remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of IBM Spectrum Protect Client installed on the remote host is 7.1.x prior to 184.108.40.206. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability due to the application exposing obfuscated VMware vCenter User ID and Password information during the VM backup process using the INCLUDE.VMTSMVSS option whenever application tracing is enabled with the VMTSMVSS flag. A local attacker can exploit this to disclose credential information.
Note that IBM Spectrum Protect was formerly known as IBM Tivoli Storage Manager in releases prior to version 7.1.3.
SolutionUpgrade to IBM Spectrum Protect Client version 220.127.116.11 or later.
