Intel Southbridge 2 Baseboard Management Controller Remote Denial of Service Vulnerability

Intel Enterprise Southbridge 2 Baseboard Management Controllers are prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability because the devices fail to properly restrict remote access to authorized users.

Successfully exploiting this issue allows remote attackers to gain network-based access to the Baseboard Management Controller for Intelligent Platform Management Interface. By issuing commands to this interface, attackers can trigger denial-of-service conditions, but they cannot gain access to the operating system or data contained in affected computers.

Firmware versions prior to release 57 are vulnerable to this issue.
