CVE-2012-0133 (AV:L/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P) 3.7
Information on CVSS is documented
in HP Customer Notice: HPSN-2008-002


The vulnerability can be resolved by either of the two following options:

Software Purge Option : HP provides a script that is run by the switch manager using the show tech custom command. This script will delete the file(s) and directory without exposing a personal computer to the files on the compact flash. The operation of the switch is not impacted. This option is best for customers wanting to maximize the uptime of their network.

Hardware Replacement Option : For those customers who have 5400 zl switch inventory that is not on their network and must be purged, this option allows for the Management Module to be replaced. Also, any customer that feels uncomfortable performing the Software Purge Option can choose the Hardware Replacement Option as well. An advanced replacement Management Module will be sent to the customer. Once it arrives, the original Management Module is returned to HP after the new one is installed. The downside to this option is that the 5400 zl switch must be powered down in order to replace the Management Module, resulting in downtime.

Please contact HP support for direct assistance acquiring the software purge script or the hardware replacement option: https://h10145.www1.hp.com/help/Help_ContactInfo.aspx?cwp=2&SelectedTab=2
