Vulnerability Note VU#895524
HP System Management Homepage vulnerable to a denial-of-service condition
HP System Management Homepage 188.8.131.52 and possibly earlier versions contain a denial-of-service vulnerability (CWE-121).
CWE-121: Stack-based Buffer Overflow
HP System Management Homepage 184.108.40.206 contains a denial-of-service vulnerability. The remote attacker may send the listener service a malformed request using the iprange parameter in /proxy/DataValidation. One of the listener child processes will then crash with that request value, overwriting EIP and corrupting the stack, resulting in a denial-of-service condition.
A remote attacker may be able to cause a denial-of-service condition against the HP System Management Homepage software.
HP has made System Management Homepage (SMH) v7.2.1 available for Windows and Linux to resolve the vulnerabilities. In the event that updating is not possible, the following workaround is also available.
