HP logo HP is warning its customers about two security vulnerabilities in its Operations Agent server monitoring software. According to the company, unspecified errors in the enterprise software for AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris and Windows can be exploited by a remote attacker to compromise a vulnerable system and execute arbitrary code. Both of these errors have a CVSS 2.0 (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) base score of 10.0, the highest possible severity rating.

Versions prior to 11.03.12 on all supported platforms are affected; upgrading to 11.03.12 corrects the problems. The vulnerabilities were reported to HP by Luigi Auriemma via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative (ZDI).

A full list of affected versions, and patch download information can be found in the company's security advisory. HP advises all administrators to install the patches as soon as possible.
