critical Nessus Plugin ID 96532
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


The version of HP Operations Orchestration running on the remote host is 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.


Upgrade to HP Operations Orchestration version 10.70 or later.
