Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for namazu lang parameter directory traversal vulnerability in HP Systems Management Homepage

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a CGI script that is affected by an
directory traversal flaw.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running HP Systems Management Homepage
(SMH), a web-based management interface for ProLiant and Integrity
servers.

The version of HP SMH on the remote host includes a version of the
search engine Namazu that reportedly fails to validate user input to
the 'lang' parameter of the 'namazu.cgi' script. A possible hacker may be
able to exploit this issue to access files on the remote host via
directory traversal.
