Description

Solarwinds Orion (with Web Console WPM 2019.4.1, and Orion Platform HF4 or NPM HF2 2019.4) allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a defined event. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of a user-supplied string before using it to execute a system call. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code in the context of SYSTEM. Authentication is required to exploit this vulnerability.
