HP Software Security Response Team


A potential security vulnerability has been identified in Command
View XP for all versions up to and including 1.8B, running on any
management stations whereby it is possible to bypass access

SUPPORTED SOFTWARE VERSIONS*: ONLY impacted versions are listed.
Command View XP versions 1.11, 1.11.1, 1.11.02, 1.30.00,

The Enterprise-level storage array product line uses an integral
management station to run Command View XP. During normal
operation as well as debug operations, it is possible to bypass
access restriction when working from the managment station.

This bypass is not possible from the remote web client to the
Command View XP graphical user interface, nor by way of the
command line interface.

Affected platforms include StorageWorks Disk Array XP48,
StorageWorks Disk Array XP128, Surestore Disk Array XP256,
StorageWorks Disk Array XP512, and StorageWorks Disk Array XP1024.
