From local network

Impact:

Security Bypass

Solution Status:

Unpatched

CVE Reference(s):

Description


A security issue has been reported in ManageEngine EventLog Analyzer, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.

The problem is that the application installs MySQL with insecure settings i.e. accepting remote connections and including an account with a username of "root" and having a blank password. This can be exploited to gain access to the database and potentially manipulate the logs.

The security issue is reported in EventLog Analyzer build 4030 for Windows. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
The vendor recommends making configuration changes by adding a password and blocking MySQL connections from other machines. Please contact the vendor for more information.
