4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in HP Power Manager, 
which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable 
system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when processing 
parameters sent to the /goform/formExportDataLogs URL. This can be 
exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long 
"fileName" parameter.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
