Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.
The specific flaw exists within the function DtbClsLogin defined in the module dpwindtb.dll on Windows and libdplindtb.so on Linux. This function takes user supplied input and copies it directly to a stack buffer. By providing a large enough string this buffer can be overrun and may result in arbitrary code execution dependent on the underlying operating system.
Hewlett-Packard has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
