New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its self-reported version, the HP Version Control Repository Manager (VCRM) application installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 7.6.0. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in OpenSSL in x509_vfy.c due to improper handling of certificate revocation lists (CRLs). An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted CRL, to cause a NULL pointer dereference, resulting in a crash of the service. (CVE-2016-7052)

- A cross-site request forgery (XSRF) vulnerability exists in VCRM due to HTTP requests not requiring multiple steps, explicit confirmation, or a unique token when performing certain sensitive actions. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user into following a specially crafted link, to perform unspecified actions. (CVE-2016-8513)

- An unspecified flaw exists in VCRM that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to disclose potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2016-8514)

- An unspecified flaw exists in VCRM that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to upload arbitrary files.
(CVE-2016-8515)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to HP Version Control Repository Manager version 7.6.0 or later.
