CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Upgrade to one of the following software versions: - - ArubaOS or later - - ArubaOS or later - - ArubaOS or later - - ArubaOS or later

ArubaOS is prone to multiple vulnerabilities A buffer over-read vulnerability allows an unauthenticated user to read from uninitialized memory locations. Based on analysis of the flaw, Aruba does not believe that this memory is likely to contain sensitive information. The Broadcom Wi-Fi driver used in the AP-2xx series access points allows attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via crafted wireless control message packets. The attacker must be joined to the network (wired or wireless) - this vulnerability may not be exercised by an unauthenticated user against a WPA2 network. A flaw in the ISC DHCP server allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via an invalid length field in a UDP IPv4 packet. The flawed DHCP server is incorporated into ArubaOS. If the DHCP server is enabled in an Aruba mobility controller, an attacker could cause it to crash. ArubaOS would automatically restart the process. However, DHCP services would be disrupted temporarily.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
