Description

This strike exploits a command injection vulnerability in IBM Spectrum Protect Plus. The vulnerability is due to a combination of missing authentication of the hostname uri and a lack of input sanitization for injection or invalid characters in the hostname parameter. When an attacker sends an HTTP POST request to "/emi/api/hostname", command execution can occur.
