OS Command Injection Vulnerability in SAP Wily Introscope Enterprise

Impact On Business

The vulnerability can allow an attacker to inject OS commands and thus gain complete control of the host running the CA Introscope Enterprise Manager. That exploit can be started remotely and does not require authentication or any privileges.

Affected Components Description

CA Introscope Enterprise Manager is part of CA APM Introscope(R), an application performance management solution to manage Java Application performance. With the Right to View (RTV) version of CA APM Introscope, SAP ships a read-only version of the full product that is bundled with SAP Solution Manager (SolMan). This version only supports products that are licensed and supported by SAP. CA APM Introscope is integrated in the SolMan infrastructure. While the CA Introscope Enterprise Manager(s) are directly connected to SolMan, the Introscope Host Adapters (also known as Wily Host agents) are running inside the SolMan Diagnostics agents (SMD agents) that are installed on each SAP host that is monitored by SolMan.

Affected Components:
