TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: SSL/TLS Clients vulnerable to

man-in-the-middle attacks via forcing ‘export-grade’ RSA encryption (aka
FREAK Attack)


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

Title: SSL/TLS Clients vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks via
forcing ‘export-grade’ RSA encryption (aka FREAK Attack)
Description: Researchers have publically disclosed a new SSL/TLS
vulnerability that could allow an attacker to potentially eavesdrop on
a encrypted SSL/TLS session. An attacker that has the capacity to act
as a man-in-the-middle could possibly force the client and server to
utilize weak ‘export-grade’ RSA encryption during the SSL/TLS handshake.
Administrators are urged to patch their systems as soon as possible.

Snort SID: Detection pending

Title: Remote Code Execution Vulnerability within Seagate Business
Storage 2-Bay NAS Products Disclosed
Description: A zero-day vulnerability within Seagate Business Storage
2-Bay NAS Products has been disclosed. The vulnerability could allow
remote code execution from a remote, unauthenticated attacker. At this
time, no update has been provided by the vendor. It is advised that
users ensure vulnerable devices are not publically accessible via the
internet and to restrict access to trusted IP addresses.

Snort SID: Detection pending

Title: PHPMoAdmin Unauthorized Remote Code Execution Zero-day Vulnerability
Description: A zero-day vulnerability within PHPMoAdmin has been
disclosed that could allow remote code execution from a remote,
unauthenticated attacker. At the time of writing this, no known patch
for this vulnerability exists.

RECENT VULNERABILITIES FOR WHICH EXPLOITS ARE AVAILABLE COMPILED BY THE QUALYS VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

This is a list of recent vulnerabilities for which exploits are
available. System administrators can use this list to help in
prioritization of their remediation activities. The Qualys Vulnerability
Research Team compiles this information based on various exploit
frameworks, exploit databases, exploit kits and monitoring of internet
activity.

ID: CVE-2014-8687
Title: Seagate Business NAS Pre-Authentication Remote Code Execution
Vendor: Seagate
Description: A remote exploitation of an input validation error
vulnerability in Seagate Technology Inc.’s Business NAS, could allow
attackers to execute arbitrary code on the targeted host. The issue is
due to improper user input of PHP code within the language files on the
login page. Seagate’s Business NAS versions 2014.00319 and prior are
vulnerable.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2015-1497
Title: Persistent Systems Client Automation Command Injection Remote
Code Execution Vulnerability
Vendor: Persistent Systems
Description: radexecd.exe in Persistent Systems Radia Client Automation
(RCA) 7.9, 8.1, 9.0, and 9.1 allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary commands via a crafted request to TCP port 3465.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2015-0310
Title: Adobe Flash Player Memory Address Randomization Design Error
Security Bypass Vulnerability
Vendor: Adobe
Description: Adobe Flash Player before 13.0.0.262 and 14.x through 16.x
before 16.0.0.287 on Windows and OS X and before 11.2.202.438 on Linux
does not properly restrict discovery of memory addresses, which allows
attackers to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism on Windows, and have
an unspecified impact on other platforms, via unknown vectors, as
exploited in the wild in January 2015.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-10021
Title: WordPress WP Symposium 14.11 Shell Upload
Vendor: WP Symposium
Description: Unrestricted file upload vulnerability in UploadHandler.php
in the WP Symposium plugin 14.11 for WordPress allows remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code by uploading a file with an executable
extension, then accessing it via a direct request to the file in
server/php/.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 7.5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

ID: CVE-2014-4114
Title: Microsoft Windows OLE - Remote Code Execution “Sandworm” Exploit
(MS14-060)
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: Microsoft Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2 and
R2 SP1, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 Gold
and R2, and Windows RT Gold and 8.1 allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted OLE object in an Office document, as
exploited in the wild with a “Sandworm” attack in June through October
2014, aka “Windows OLE Remote Code Execution Vulnerability.”
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-7169
Title: Multiple Vendor Bash Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Vendor: Multiple Vendors
Description: GNU Bash through 4.3 bash43-025 processes trailing strings
after certain malformed function definitions in the values of
environment variables, which allows remote attackers to write to files
or possibly have unknown other impact via a crafted environment, as
demonstrated by vectors involving the ForceCommand feature in OpenSSH
sshd, the mod_cgi and mod_cgid modules in the Apache HTTP Server,
scripts executed by unspecified DHCP clients, and other situations in
which setting the environment occurs across a privilege boundary from
Bash execution. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete
fix for CVE-2014-6271.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-6271
Title: Multiple Vendor Bash Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Vendor: Multiple Vendors
Description: GNU Bash through 4.3 processes trailing strings after
function definitions in the values of environment variables, which
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted
environment, as demonstrated by vectors involving the ForceCommand
feature in OpenSSH sshd, the mod_cgi and mod_cgid modules in the Apache
HTTP Server, scripts executed by unspecified DHCP clients, and other
situations in which setting the environment occurs across a privilege
boundary from Bash execution, aka “ShellShock.” NOTE: the original fix
for this issue was incorrect; CVE-2014-7169 has been assigned to cover
the vulnerability that is still present after the incorrect fix.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
