A weakness and multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in HP Service Manager, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks, disclose certain sensitive information, manipulate certain data, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), and compromise a vulnerable system.

1) The application bundles a vulnerable version of Java.

This weakness and vulnerabilities are reported in HP Service Manager versions 9.30 and 9.31 for Windows, Linux, HP-UX, Solaris, and AIX.

2) Certain unspecified input related to the Web Tier component is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

3) An unspecified error in the Web Tier component can be exploited to disclose certain potentially sensitive information.

The vulnerabilities #2 and #3 are reported in version 9.31 for Windows.
