- -- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of HP MSA 2000 G3. Authentication is not
required to exploit this vulnerability.
The specific flaws exists within the web interface listening on TCP port
80. There exists a directory traversal flaw that can allow a remote
attacker to view any file on the system by simply specifying it in the
default URI. Additionally, the pasword file contains a default login
that can be used to authenticate to the device. This can be leveraged by
a remote attacker to perform any tasks an administrator is able to.
- -- Vendor Response:
- -- Mitigation:
HP states that a patch for this vulnerability will be made available to
the public "soon." Until that time, it is recommended that
administrators of StorageWorks systems restrict access to the web
interface on 80/tcp to authorized hosts only.
