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

Title: Lenovo Addresses Pair of Critical Vulnerabilities in Lenovo
System Update Service Password
Description: Researchers at IOActive have found a pair of
vulnerabilities within the Lenovo System Update Service. One of the two
vulnerabilities addressed is a weak random password generator that is
used by the service to create a temporary administrator account when
fetching updates from Lenovo support. The other vulnerability addressed
is a privilege escalation vulnerability that could allow a user to
download arbitrary executables on the targeted system with administrator
privileges. Lenovo System Update versions 5.07.0013 and earlier have
been identified to be vulnerable. Lenovo has released updates to address
the pair of vulnerabilities.

Title: RSI Video Technologies Videofied Security System Found to
Contains Software Using an Insecure Custom Protocol
Description: Researchers have discovered that RSI Video Technologies’
Videofied security system contains software that utilizes an insecure
custom protocol. These security systems utilize Frontel, a software
package that is used to monitor alarm status. One of the vulnerabilities
is the use of a hard-coded cryptographic key that is derived from the
serial number of the device. Other vulnerabilities that were discovered
are the transmissions of messages and videos unencrypted after the AES
handshake and insufficient verification of data authenticity. RSI Video
Technologies has responded by releasing an update for Frontel to address
these issues.
