Risks of Exposing the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI)

Original release date: June 23, 2014

Multiple weaknesses exist in several server platforms employing IPMI. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to take control of the affected system or expose sensitive server information. 

Server administrators are encouraged to review US-CERT Alert TA13-207A and restrict IPMI access so that the interface cannot be reached from the Internet.
