Description:

LPAR2RRD is a performance monitoring and capacity planning software for IBM Power Systems. LPAR2RRD generates historical, future trends and nearly "real-time" CPU utilization graphs of LPAR's and shared CPU usage.

Insufficient input sanitization on the parameters passed to the application web gui leads to arbitrary command injection on the LPAR2RRD application server.

Fixed version:

LPAR2RRD > 4.53
