Cisco Unified Communications Manager Multiple Vulnerabilities

Published: 2015-08-24 12:07:08

CVSS Base Vector:

Detection Type:
Remote Vulnerability

The host is running Cisco Unified Communications Manager and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Detection Method:
Send a crafted request via HTTP GET and check whether it is able to execute the code

Technical Details:
The flaws are due to, - Authenticated users of CUCM can access limited functionality via the web interface and Cisco console (SSH on port 22). Because the SSH server is configured to process several environment variables from the client and a vulnerable version of bash is used, it is possible to exploit command injection via specially crafted environment variables. - The application allows users to view the contents of any locally accessible files on the web server through a vulnerability known as LFI (Local File Inclusion). - The pingExecute servlet allows unauthenticated users to execute pings to arbitrary IP addresses. This could be used by an attacker to enumerate the internal network. - Authentication for some methods in the EPAS SOAP interface can be bypassed by using a hardcoded session ID. The methods 'GetUserLoginInfoHandler' and 'GetLoggedinXMPPUserHandler' are affected.

Successful exploitation may allow remote attackers to spawn a shell running as the user 'admin', enumerate the internal network, view the contents of any locally accessible files on the web server.

Affected Versions:
Cisco Unified Communications Manager 9.x < 9.2, 10.x < 10.5.2, 11.x < 11.0.1.

Upgrade to CUCM version 9.2, 10.5.2 or 11.0.1 pr later.

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

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".
