Vulnerability Note VU#966927

HP Client Automation and Radia Client Automation is vulnerable to remote code execution

Original Release date: 20 Oct 2015 | Last revised: 22 Oct 2015

Overview

Radia Client Automation (previously sold under the name HP Client Automation) agent prior to version 9.1 is vulnerable to arbitrary remote code execution.

Description

According to ZDI's advisory for ZDI-15-363, which has been assigned CVE-2015-7860:

    "This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Hewlett-Packard Client Automation. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

    The specific flaw exists within the Hewlett-Packard Client Automation agent. An attacker can send a large buffer of data to the agent which will cause a stack buffer overflow. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code under the context of the SYSTEM."


According to ZDI's advisory for ZDI-15-364, which has been assigned CVE-2015-7861:
    "This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Hewlett-Packard Client Automation. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

    The specific flaw exists within the Hewlett-Packard Client Automation agent. An attacker can send arbitrary commands to the agent. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code under the context of the SYSTEM."


These vulnerabilities impact the Role-Based Access and Remote Notify features of HP Client Automation.

Since 2013, the HP Client Automation software is now developed by Persistent Systems (and its subsidiary Accelerite) under the name Radia Client Automation.

Impact

An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.
