Cisco NX-OS Software 802.1X Extensible Authentication Protocol over LAN Denial of Service Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2019-03-06 16:00

A vulnerability in the 802.1X implementation for Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to incomplete input validation of Extensible Authentication Protocol over LAN (EAPOL) frames. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted EAPOL frame to an interface on the targeted device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause the Layer 2 (L2) forwarding process to restart multiple times, leading to a system-level restart of the device and a DoS condition.

Note: This vulnerability affects only NX-OS devices configured with 802.1X functionality.

Cisco NX-OS Software Bash Shell Role-Based Access Control Bypass Privilege Escalation Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2019-03-06 16:00

A vulnerability in the Bash shell implementation for Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an authenticated, local attacker to escalate their privilege level by executing commands authorized to other user roles. The attacker must authenticate with valid user credentials.

The vulnerability is due to the incorrect implementation of a Bash shell command that allows role-based access control (RBAC) to be bypassed. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by authenticating to the device and entering a crafted command at the Bash prompt. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to escalate their privilege level by executing commands that should be restricted to other roles. For example, a dev-ops user could escalate their privilege level to admin with a successful exploit of this vulnerability.

Cisco Nexus 5600 and 6000 Series Switches Fibre Channel over Ethernet Denial of Service Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2019-03-06 16:00

A vulnerability in the Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol implementation in Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to an incorrect allocation of an internal interface index. An adjacent attacker with the ability to submit a crafted FCoE packet that crosses affected interfaces could trigger this vulnerability. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause a packet loop and high throughput on the affected interfaces, resulting in a DoS condition.

Action Recommended to Secure the Cisco Nexus PowerOn Auto Provisioning Feature

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2019-03-06 16:00

Cisco Nexus devices support an automatic provisioning or zero-touch deployment feature called PowerOn Auto Provisioning (POAP). This feature assists in automating the initial deployment and configuration of Nexus switches. POAP is enabled by default and activates on devices that have no startup configuration or when Perpetual POAP has been configured using the boot poap enable command.

As with other automatic provisioning technologies, such as Cisco Zero-Touch Provisioning or Cisco Smart Install, some basic assumptions are made about the initial deployment environment. First, that administrators know that the feature exists and is enabled by default. Second, that the Layer 2 (L2) network on which a device initially connects is secure.

By design, the POAP feature leverages several unauthenticated protocols to obtain the initial configuration file for a device. When a device with POAP boots and subsequently fails to locate a startup configuration, such as on the first startup after unboxing or after a restoration of factory defaults, the device enters POAP mode. The device will attempt to locate a DHCP server through a connected management interface1. Then the switch will listen for a DHCP response that includes at a minimum the following:

  • An IP address
  • A default gateway
  • Option 66 (TFTP server name) or Option 150 (TFTP server address)
  • Option 67 (boot file name)

If the Nexus device receives multiple DHCP responses that meet these requirements, the first DHCP response received will be accepted, and POAP will move to the next stage of the device configuration. If no DHCP responses that meet these requirements are received prior to the timeout period, the device will exit POAP mode.

If a DHCP response is accepted, the Nexus device will attempt to connect to the provided TFTP server to retrieve the Python or Tool Command Language (Tcl) POAP configuration script specified within the boot file option. The switch will then execute the script to retrieve the specified software and device configuration. The Nexus device software and configuration may be retrieved using Secure Copy Protocol (SCP), FTP, or SFTP. The downloaded Nexus software will be assigned as the active image, with the configuration file scheduled to be applied when the device restarts.

Several steps in the POAP configuration process rely on a secure network segment to obtain critical startup information. While the POAP feature disables itself after a configuration is applied to a device2, it is critical that customers properly secure the networks in which POAP may be utilized. Some customers may want to disable the POAP feature and use other methods to configure a Nexus device out of the box. To this end, Cisco has added multiple new commands to disable POAP that will persist across a reset to factory defaults and the removal of a configuration. For guidelines on securing a POAP environment, as well as information about disabling the feature, see the Details and Recommendations sections.

This advisory is available at the following link:
https://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityAdvisory/cisco-sa-20190306-info-poap

1On some Nexus chassis-based devices, the DHCP solicitation may also be sent using all front-panel Ethernet interfaces of the installed router processor.

2The POAP feature will not be disabled if Perpetual POAP has been configured using the boot poap enable command and will run on each reload of the device.

Cisco DNA Center Access Contract Stored Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2019-03-06 16:00

A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of Cisco DNA Center could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to conduct a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack against a user of the web-based management interface of an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input by the web-based management interface of an affected device. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user of the interface to click a crafted link. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary script code in the context of the interface or allow the attacker to access sensitive browser-based information.

Multiple vulnerabilities in the web-based management interface of Cisco Enterprise Chat and Email could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack against a user of the web-based management interface of the affected software.

The vulnerabilities are due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input by the web-based management interface of the affected software. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities either by injecting malicious code in a chat window or by sending a crafted link to a user of the interface. In both cases, the attacker must persuade the user to click the crafted link or open the chat window that contains the attacker's code. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary script code in the context of the affected interface or access sensitive, browser-based information.

A vulnerability in the management interface of Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) software could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to gain unauthorized access on an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to a lack of proper access control mechanisms for IPv6 link-local connectivity imposed on the management interface of an affected device. An attacker on the same physical network could exploit this vulnerability by attempting to connect to the IPv6 link-local address on the affected device.
