This vulnerability allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information on vulnerable installations of HP Intelligent Management Center. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists within the SyslogDownloadServlet servlet. This servlet suffers from a directory traversal vulnerability which allows any file readable by SYSTEM to be disclosed. By abusing this behavior an attacker can disclose administrative credentials and possibly leverage this situation to achieve remote code execution.
