Additional Information

HP LoadRunner is a tool for testing system performance.

HP LoadRunner is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize the destination path which leads to directory traversal. An attacker can exploit this issue by enticing an user into opening a malicious webpage or file.

Successfully exploiting this issue may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the affected application. Failed exploit attempts may result in a denial-of-service condition.
