Secunia Research has discovered two vulnerabilities in HP Power Manager, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
1) A boundary error exists when processing parameters sent to the /goform/formExportDataLogs URL. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long "fileName" parameter sent to the affected URL.
2) An input sanitation error exists when handling "fileName" parameters passed to the /goform/formExportDataLogs URL. This can be exploited to overwrite arbitrary files with almost arbitrary data via directory traversal attacks.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 4.2.9. Other versions may also be affected.
