HP Operations Manager HTMLManagerServlet class code execution
|operations-manager-servlet-code-execution (54361)||High Risk|
HP Operations Manager could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a hidden account in the users Tomcat XML file. By sending a specially-crafted POST request to /manager/html/upload, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to upload a file and gain unauthorized access to the org.apache.catalina.manager.HTMLManagerServlet class to execute arbitrary code on the system with SYSTEM level privileges.
