TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: Certain Dell Laptops Found to Ship with

Root Certificate, Private Key


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: Certain Dell Laptops Found to Ship with Root Certificate, Private
Key
Description: Researchers have found that certain Dell Laptops ship with
a pre-installed root certificate and private key corresponding to the
certificate. The certificate can be identified by name as “eDellRoot”
in the certificate trust store within Windows. This issue could
potentially allow an attacker to man-in-the-middle a secure connection
and steal sensitive information. End users are advised to remove the
certificate from the trust store to reduce the risk of exposure.

Title: ARRIS Cable Modems Found to Generate Passwords Deterministically
and Contain XSS and CSRF vulnerabilities
Description: A researcher has discovered that ARRIS cable modems contain
multiple vulnerabilities as well as a “backdoor in a backdoor”. Using a
publicly known algorithm, it’s possible to generate a “password of the
day” for various ARRIS cable modem models and login as a technician.
Once logged into the modem, an attacker could enable remote
administration, login to the cable modem, and obtain a BusyBox shell.

Vulnerability in Certain Products
Description: VMware has issued a security advisory for VMware vCenter
Server, vCloud Director, and Horizon View to address an XML eXternal
Entity (XXE) vulnerability in Apache Flex BlazeDS. Flex BlazeDS is a
software package used within several VMware products that has been
identified to contain this vulnerability. VMware has released updated
software packages to update Flex BlazeDS and correct the flaw.
