EMC ESRS Policy Manager is affected by an undocumented account vulnerability that could potentially be leveraged by malicious users to compromise the affected system.
EMC ESRS Policy Manager contains an undocumented account (OpenDS admin) with a default password. A remote attacker with the knowledge of the default password may login to the system and gain administrator privileges to the local LDAP directory server.
The account and default password have been added to EMC Security Remote Services Policy Operations Guide v6.8. Customers can change the default password by following steps documented at: https://support.emc.com/kb/483941. Starting from EMC ESRS Policy Manager version 6.8 customers are prompted to change the password for this account during the installation process.
EMC recommends all customers to install or follow instructions to change the default password at the earliest opportunity.
