HPE has evaluated the impact of these vulnerabilities that have been identified in all HPE 3PAR Service Processor versions prior to SP-4.4.0.GA-110(MU7). HPE has supplied the following SP release which mitigate any potential impact of the identified vulnerabilities.

  • SP-4.4.0.GA-110(MU7) (or subsequent release)

    • Note: Change the below passwords on the accounts after first applying SP 4.4.0.GA-110 MU7 to remediate the security issue.
    • Note: the update requires 3PAR OS upgrade to 3.2.2MU4 or OS 3.2.2MU6 (or subsequent).
  • These are the mandatory configuration steps to be followed to mitigate the local disclosure of privileged information in the HPE 3PAR Service Processor:

    Each of these 4 accounts (setupusr, spvar, 3parcust, cpmaint) should be managed from the menu to change the default passwords as supplied from initial setup.

    • Change setupusr, spvar, 3parcust, cpmaint using the below example steps.

    Step 1: Role required: 3parcust

    SSH into the SP IP address and enter 3parcust as user and the password for it to login.

    Step 2: From the SP menu, type

    =1.14.1 Enter

    The output is as follows.

    Known users

    1 ==> setupusr
    2 ==> spvar
    3 ==> 3parcust
    4 ==> cpmaint

    0 ==> Abort Operation

    **Step 3**: Please select a user to operate on.

    For each user account, select that account from the menu and change the password.

  • For questions, please contact HPE Support.

  • Version:1 (rev.1) - 10 August 2018 Initial release
  • Version:2 (rev.2) - 19 September 2018 Added Note to change passwords after updating to 4.4 MU7, clarified does not impact SP 5.x
