[R1] HPE Intelligent Management Center (iMC) PLAT Java RMI RCE



After the publication of TRA-2017-18, Tenable began to work on an exploit plugin. During research for the new plugin Tenable discovered that HPE's patch didn't fix all issues associated with TRA-2017-18. Specifically, TRA-2017-18 achieved remote code execution over Java RMI using the ysoserial payloads Jython1, CommonsBeanutils1, or JSON1. HPE's patch removed the Jython1 and CommonsBeanutils1 attack vectors but JSON1 was never patched.


Upgrade to HPE Intelligent Management Center (iMC) PLAT 7.3 E0506P07 or later.
