Improper Control of Generation of Code ('Code Injection')
Hospira MedNet software version 5.8 and prior uses vulnerable versions of the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform software that may allow unauthenticated users to execute arbitrary code on the target system. Hospira has developed a new version of the MedNet software, MedNet 6.1. Existing versions of MedNet can be upgraded to MedNet 6.1.
CWE-94 - Code Injection
Code injection is a type of vulnerability that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. This vulnerability fully compromises the machine and can cause a wide variety of security issues, such as unauthorized access to sensitive information, manipulation of data, denial of service attacks etc. Code injection is different from command injection in the fact that it is limited by the functionality of the injected language (e.g. PHP), as opposed to command injection, which leverages existing code to execute commands, usually within the context of a shell.
