This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of HP PCM Plus. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists within the UpdateCertificatesServlet. This servlet improperly sanitizes the 'fileName' argument allowing the remote attacker could upload a .jsp file. This can result in remote code execution under the context of the SYSTEM user.
