HP Power Manager < 4.3.2 Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5736
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 power management application installed on the remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


Versions of HP Powere Manager earlier than 4.3.2 are potentially affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability because the application fails to properly sanitize user supplied in put to the 'Login' parameter of the login page. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this by sending a specially crafted HTTP request, resulting in arbitrary code execution.


Upgrade to HP Power Manager 4.3.2 or later.
