Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM & Presence Service CSRF Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2018-06-20 14:00

A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM & Presence Service (formerly CUPS) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attack and perform arbitrary actions on an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient CSRF protections for the web-based management interface of an affected device. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user of the interface to follow a crafted link. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to perform arbitrary actions on a targeted device via a web browser and with the privileges of the user.

There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Cisco NX-OS Software Authenticated Simple Network Management Protocol Denial of Service Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2018-06-20 14:00

A vulnerability in the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) input packet processor of Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to cause the SNMP application on an affected device to restart unexpectedly.

The vulnerability is due to improper validation of SNMP protocol data units (PDUs) in SNMP packets. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted SNMP packet to an affected device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause the SNMP application to restart multiple times, leading to a system-level restart and a denial of service (DoS) condition.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Cisco NX-OS Software Role-Based Access Control Elevated Privileges Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2018-06-20 14:00

A vulnerability in role-based access control (RBAC) for Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to execute CLI commands that should be restricted for a nonadministrative user. The attacker would have to possess valid user credentials for the device.

The vulnerability is due to incorrect RBAC privilege assignment for certain CLI commands. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by authenticating to a device as a nonadministrative user and executing specific commands from the CLI. An exploit could allow the attacker to run commands that should be restricted to administrative users. These commands could modify the configuration or boot image on the device.

Cisco NX-OS Software Internet Group Management Protocol Snooping Remote Code Execution and Denial of Service Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2018-06-20 14:00

A vulnerability in the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) Snooping feature of Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to execute arbitrary code and gain full control of an affected system. The attacker could also cause an affected system to reload, resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition.

The vulnerability is due to a buffer overflow condition in the IGMP Snooping subsystem. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending crafted IGMP packets to an affected system. An exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code and gain full control of the affected system or cause the affected system to reload, resulting in a DoS condition.

Cisco NX-OS Software Border Gateway Protocol Denial of Service Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2018-06-20 14:00

A vulnerability in the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) implementation of Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition due to the device unexpectedly reloading.

The vulnerability is due to incomplete input validation of the BGP update messages. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted BGP update message to the targeted device. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause the switch to reload unexpectedly.

The Cisco implementation of the BGP protocol only accepts incoming BGP traffic from explicitly defined peers. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must be able to send the malicious packets over a TCP connection that appears to come from a trusted BGP peer or inject malformed messages into the victim's BGP network. This would require obtaining information about the BGP peers in the affected system's trusted network.

The vulnerability may be triggered when the router receives a malformed BGP message from a peer on an existing BGP session. At least one BGP neighbor session must be established for a router to be vulnerable.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Cisco FXOS and NX-OS Software Unauthorized Administrator Account Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2018-06-20 14:00

A vulnerability in the write-erase feature of Cisco FXOS Software and Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an authenticated, local attacker to configure an unauthorized administrator account for an affected device.

The vulnerability exists because the affected software does not properly delete sensitive files when certain CLI commands are used to clear the device configuration and reload a device. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by logging into an affected device as an administrative user and configuring an unauthorized account for the device. The account would not require a password for authentication and would be accessible only via a Secure Shell (SSH) connection to the device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to configure an unauthorized account that has administrative privileges, does not require a password for authentication, and does not appear in the running configuration or the audit logs for the affected device.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

NVIDIA TX1 Boot ROM Vulnerability

Cisco Security Advisories - Wed, 2018-06-20 14:00

On April 24, 2018, researchers disclosed a vulnerability that takes advantage of a buffer overflow vulnerability in NVIDIA TX1 BootROM when Recovery Mode (RCM) is active. This vulnerability could allow an unprivileged, local attacker to bypass secure boot and execute unverified code on an affected system.

The vulnerability has been identified by CVE-2018-6242.

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must be able to physically access the device along with the affected processor’s USB connection. This vulnerability cannot be exploited remotely, even if the device is connected to the Internet.

Cisco has identified all products that use the NVIDIA TX1 processor and has released software updates to address this vulnerability. The software update will permanently disable the ability to activate RCM. Should customers attempt to downgrade their software version, the ability to activate RCM will no longer be available.

There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
