Vulnerability Details

SolarWinds Orion NPM suffers from a SYSTEM remote code execution vulnerability in the “OrionModuleEngine” service. This service establishes an NetTcpBinding endpoint that allows remote, unauthenticated clients to connect and call publicly exposed methods. The “InvokeActionMethod” method may be abused by an attacker to execute commands as the SYSTEM user.
