The vulnerability could be exploited remotely to gain unauthorized access or to gain extended privileges. References: CVE-2009-0715 SUPPORTED SOFTWARE VERSIONS*: ONLY impacted versions are listed. HP Storage Essentials 6.0.0 Service Pack 2 (6.0.2) running Secure NaviCLI HP Storage Essentials 6.0.0 Service Pack 3 (6.0.3) running Secure NaviCLI HP Storage Essentials 6.0.0 Service Pack 4 (6.0.4) running Secure NaviCLI BACKGROUND CVSS 2.0 Base Metrics =============================================== Reference Base Vector Base Score CVE-2009-0715 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:N) 4.9 =============================================== Information on CVSS is documented in HP Customer Notice: HPSN-2008-002. RESOLUTION HP has provided the following procedure to resolve this vulnerability. There are two ways to work around the vulnerability: Disable discovery through Secure NaviCLI OR Limit login access and restrict privileges for Storage Essentials users Disable discovery through Secure NaviCLI =============================== To disable discovery through Secure NaviCLI Set the following custom property in the management server user interface by going to Configuration > Product Health > Advanced > Custom Properties: cimom.provider.clariion.secure=false Stop the management server service Move the management server log file (appstormanager.log) and the associated rolled log files into a secure location. Restart the management server service Note: When the custom property, cimom.provider.clariion.secure , is set to false the management server will be unable to manage CLARiiON arrays through Secure NaviCLI. CLARiiON systems will no longer be discovered by the management server through Secure NaviCLI. Note: The log files may be discarded when they are no longer needed for diagnostic purposes. Limit login access and restrict privileges for Storage Essentials users =================================================== If the procedure above is not chosen, the vulnerability can be worked around by limiting login access and restricting privileges for Storage Essentials users. Limit login access to the Storage Essentials management server file system to those who need to know the access credentials of the elements managed by Storage Essentials. Do not give users "Domain Admin" privileges unless necessary. Do not give users a role with "System Configuration" rights unless necessary.
