==============================================Information on CVSS is documented in HP Customer Notice: HPSN-2008-002.

HP has provided the following procedure to resolve this vulnerability.

There are two ways to work around the vulnerability: 

Disable discovery through Secure NaviCLI 
Limit login access and restrict privileges for Storage Essentials users 

Disable discovery through Secure NaviCLI 
To disable discovery through Secure NaviCLI 

Set the following custom property in the management server user interface by going to Configuration > Product Health > Advanced > Custom Properties: 
Stop the management server service 
Move the management server log file (appstormanager.log) and the associated rolled log files into a secure location. 
Restart the management server service 

Note: When the custom property, cimom.provider.clariion.secure , is set to false the management server will be unable to manage CLARiiON arrays through Secure NaviCLI. CLARiiON systems will no longer be discovered by the management server through Secure NaviCLI. 

Note: The log files may be discarded when they are no longer needed for diagnostic purposes. 

Limit login access and restrict privileges for Storage Essentials users 
If the procedure above is not chosen, the vulnerability can be worked around by limiting login access and restricting privileges for Storage Essentials users. 

Limit login access to the Storage Essentials management server file system to those who need to know the access credentials of the elements managed by Storage Essentials. 
Do not give users “Domain Admin” privileges unless necessary. 
Do not give users a role with “System Configuration” rights unless necessary.
