Release Date: 2014-11-10 Last Updated: 2014-11-10 Potential Security Impact: Remote unauthenticated access Source: Hewlett-Packard Company, HP Software Security Response Team VULNERABILITY SUMMARY A potential security vulnerability has been identified with HP Helion Cloud Development Platform Community Edition and HP Helion Cloud Development Platform Commercial Edition. The vulnerability could be exploited remotely to allow Unauthenticated access. Note: On October 28, 2014, HP identified a critical security vulnerability in the v1.0 release of the HP Helion Development Platform. The vulnerability is in our Application Lifecycle Service (ALS) and requires immediate attention. Vulnerability background: During the development process, valid user and host security keys were unintentionally left on the ALS Seed Node image. These keys are thus universal on all virtual machines created using the ALS Seed Node image. If an attacker has a virtual machine (VM) created from the ALS seed node image, they could potentially use that VM to connect (without giving a password) to any other VM in any ALS cluster (including ones the attacker does not own) if the attacker obtains a valid cluster VM IP address and the cluster was created with an ALS seed node image containing the vulnerability.
