EMC DPA may be vulnerable to remote code execution vulnerability.

The DPA Illuminator service (DPA_Illuminator.exe) listening on port 8090 (tcp/http) and 8453 (tcp/https) embeds JBOSS servlets (JMXInvokerServlet and EJBInvokerServlet).  These JBOSS servlets   are vulnerable to remote code execution vulnerability.  The vulnerability could be exploited to execute remote code with NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM privileges. See http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2012-0874 for more details. 

Affected JBOSS servlets are not required for DPA functionality. This vulnerability does not affect EMC DPA versions 6.x. 

 Follow the steps below to remove the vulnerable JBOSS servlets from DPA 5.x  system and mitigate the security risk.

The following products contain the resolution to this issue:
?	EMC DPA version 6.x and later.

Workaround for DPA 5.x versions: 
1.	Stop the DPA Illuminator service.
2.	Open <Install dir>\Illuminator_Server\JBoss\server\illuminator\deploy. For example: C:\Program Files\EMC\DPA\Illuminator_Server\JBoss\server\illuminator\deploy
3.	Delete http-invoker.sar directory.
4.	Start the DPA Illuminator service.

EMC strongly recommends all customers upgrade to version 6.x or higher or apply workaround for 5.x versions at the earliest opportunity.
