-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 SUPPORT COMMUNICATION - SECURITY BULLETIN Document ID: c00597967 Version: 3 HPSBMA02096 SSRT061108 rev.3 - HP Systems Insight Manager Remote Unauthorized Access via Directory Traversal NOTICE: The information in this Security Bulletin should be acted upon as soon as possible. Release Date: 2006-02-06 Last Updated: 2006-02-13 Potential Security Impact: Remote unauthorized access via directory traversal Source: Hewlett-Packard Company, HP Software Security Response Team VULNERABILITY SUMMARY Potential security vulnerabilities have been identified with HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM) versions 4.0 and 5.0 running on Microsoft Windows. The potential vulnerabilities could be exploited to allow remote unauthorized access to files via directory traversal. References: CVE-2005-2006 SUPPORTED SOFTWARE VERSIONS*: ONLY impacted versions are listed. HP SIM 4.2, HP SIM 4.2 SP1, HP SIM 4.2 SP2, HP SIM 5.0, HP SIM 5.0 SP1, HP SIM 5.0 SP2, HP SIM 5.0 SP3 running on Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP. BACKGROUND The Hewlett-Packard Company thanks Matthew Cook (http://escarpment.net/), Loughborough University and Paul Whitton (http://splurby.net/), Loughborough University for reporting this vulnerability to security-alert (at) hp (dot) com. [email concealed] Two potential directory traversal vulnerabilities have been identified within HP Systems Insight Manager. The first is a potential vulnerability associated with the use of JBOSS 3.2.7 which could allow an unauthorized user access to files on the local file system. This issue is identified by the following candidate for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures(CVE): CVE-2005-2006 - JBOSS 3.2.2 through 3.2.7 and 4.0.2 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via a GET request. The following URL at the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures(CVE) website can be used to find more detailed information regarding the above listed CVE numbers: http://www.cve.mitre.org/ The affected versions for the first potential vulnerability related to CVE-2005-2006 are: HP SIM 5.0 HP SIM 5.0 SP1 HP SIM 5.0 SP2 HP SIM 5.0 SP3 Only for Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP. The affected versions for the second potential vulnerability are: HP SIM 4.2 HP SIM 4.2 SP1 HP SIM 4.2 SP2 HP SIM 5.0 HP SIM 5.0 SP1 HP SIM 5.0 SP2 HP SIM 5.0 SP3 Only for Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP. RESOLUTION -> HP has made a new release of HP SIM available: HP SIM 5.0 SP4. -> This release addresses both the potential vulnerabilities. -> HP SIM 5.0 SP4 is available as a full installation package or -> an update package from this location: http://h18013.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/ hpsim/dl_windows.html As an alternative these issues can be addressed by manually editing configuration files in the HP SIM installation as described below. ============================== First Issue (CVE-2005-2006): ============================== This requires a single line modification to an XML configuration file. The affected file is located in the <installdir>/jboss/server/hpsim/conf directory and is called jboss-service.xml Note: <installdir> is the base directory where HP SIM is installed. A typical default installation would be "C:program fileshpSystems Insight Manager"?. First, copy the file to a backup location. If there are problems in the editing process, the original file can be restored. Next edit the jboss-service.xml file. Search for 50013 to find the following text: <mbean code="org.jboss.web.WebService" name="jboss:service=WebService"> <attribute name="Port">50013</attribute> <!-- Should resources and non-EJB classes be downloadable --> <attribute name="DownloadServerClasses">true</attribute> <attribute name="Host">${jboss.bind.address}</attribute> <attribute name="BindAddress">${jboss.bind.address}</attribute> </mbean> Change the following line: <attribute name="DownloadServerClasses">true</attribute> To: <attribute name="DownloadServerClasses">false</attribute> The text should now appear as follows: <mbean code="org.jboss.web.WebService" name="jboss:service=WebService"> <attribute name="Port">50013</attribute> <!-- Should resources and non-EJB classes be downloadable --> <attribute name="DownloadServerClasses">false</attribute> <attribute name="Host">${jboss.bind.address}</attribute> <attribute name="BindAddress">${jboss.bind.address}</attribute> </mbean> Save the jboss-service.xml file. ============================== Second Issue: ============================== This requires a single line modification to a resource file. The affected file is located in the <installdir>hpwebadminwebappsmxhelpWEB-INFcgi directory and is called .namazurc Note: <installdir> is the base directory where HP SIM is installed. A typical default installation would be "C:program fileshpSystems Insight Manager". First, copy the file to a backup location. If there are problems in the editing process, the original file can be restored. Next edit the .namazurc file and search for #Lang. The following text will be seen: #Lang ja If the HP SIM installation is an English language installation, change the line to: Lang en If the HP SIM installation is a Japanese language installation, change the line to: Lang ja_JP.SJIS Note: Remove the # at the beginning of the line. Save the .namazurc file. ============================== Restart HP SIM: ============================== After editing the files, restart HP SIM. The changes will not take effect until HP SIM has been restarted. ============================== Summary: ============================== For HP SIM 5.0, 5.0 SP1, HP SIM 5.0 SP2, and HP SIM 5.0 SP3 1. Edit jboss-service.xml 2. Edit .namazurc 3. Restart HP SIM For HP SIM 4.2, HP SIM 4.2 SP1, and HP SIM4.2 SP2 1. Edit .namazurc 2. Restart HP SIM This Security Bulletin will be revised if other solutions become available.
