hpopenview-nnm-multiple-cgi-bo (38892) The risk level is classified as HighHigh Risk

Description:

HP OpenView Network Node Manager (OV NNM) is vulnerable to multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the ovlogin.exe, OpenView5.exe, snmpviewer.exe and webappmon.exe CGI applications. By sending an overly long argument to one of the vulnerable CGI applications, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with SYSTEM level privileges.
