SRC-2017-0020 : Hewlett Packard Enterprise Intelligent Management Center powershellConfigContent Expression Language Injection Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Intelligent Management Center
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Intelligent Management Center. Although authentication is required to exploit this vulnerability, the existing authentication mechanism can be bypassed.
The specific flaw exists within the handling of the beanName parameter provided to the powershellConfigContent.xhtml endpoint. When parsing the beanName parameter, the process does not properly validate a user-supplied string before using it to render a page. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code under the context of SYSTEM.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise has issued an update to correct these vulnerabilities. More details can be found at:
- 2016-06-01 – Verified and sent to HPE
- 2017-08-11 – Coordinated public release of advisory
