Cisco fixes Security Manager vulnerabilities with public exploits

Cisco has released security updates to address multiple pre-authentication vulnerabilities with public exploits affecting Cisco Security Manager that could allow for remote code execution after successful exploitation.

Cisco Security Manager helps manage security policies on a large assortment of Cisco security and network devices, and it also provides summarized reports and security event troubleshooting capabilities.

This product works with a wide array of Cisco security appliances including but not limited to Cisco ASA appliances, Cisco Catalyst 6000 Series Switches, Integrated Services Routers (ISRs), and Firewall Services modules.

Proof-of-concept exploits available since November

“The Cisco Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) is aware of public announcements about these vulnerabilities,” the advisory says.

These vulnerabilities impact Cisco Security Manager releases 4.22 and earlier and they were disclosed by Cisco on November 16, after being reported by Code White security researcher Florian Hauser in August. 

Hauser shared proof-of-concept exploits for all 12 Cisco Security Manager vulnerabilities he reported after Cisco PSIRT stopped responding.

Luckily, at the moment, Cisco says that they are not aware of any ongoing attacks exploiting the vulnerabilities patched today.

“Cisco PSIRT is not aware of malicious use of the vulnerabilities that are described in this advisory,” Cisco adds.

Security updates available

Cisco addressed two of the 12 vulnerabilities (CVE-2020-27125 and CVE-2020-27130) but didn’t provide any security updates to fix multiple security bugs, collectively tracked as CVE-2020-27131.

The vulnerabilities were found by Hauser in the Java deserialization function in Cisco Security Manager and are caused by “insecure deserialization of user-supplied content by the affected software.”

Following successful exploitation, they could allow unauthenticated attackers to execute arbitrary commands remotely on vulnerable devices.

“An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending a malicious serialized Java object to a specific listener on an affected system,” Cisco explains.

“A successful exploit could allow the attacker…


Cisco rolls out fix for Webex flaws that let hackers eavesdrop on meetings

Promotional image for video-conferencing software.

Cisco is rolling out fixes for three vulnerabilities in its Webex video-conference software that made it possible for interlopers to eavesdrop on meetings as a “ghost,” meaning being able to view, listen, and more without being seen by the organizer or any of the attendees.

The vulnerabilities were discovered by IBM Research and the IBM’s Office of the CISO, which analyzed Webex because it’s the company’s primary tool for remote meetings. The discovery comes as work-from-home routines have driven a more than fivefold increase in the use of Webex between February and June. At its peak, Webex hosted up to 4 million meetings in a single day.

The vulnerabilities made it possible for an attacker to:

  • Join a meeting as a ghost, in most cases with full access to audio, video, chat, and screen-sharing capabilities
  • Maintain an audio feed as a ghost even after being expelled by the meeting leader
  • Access full names, email addresses, and IP addresses of meeting attendees, even when not admitted to a conference room.

Cisco is in the process of rolling out a fix now for the vulnerabilities, which are tracked as CVE-2020-3441, CVE-2020-3471, and CVE-2020-3419. Below is a video demonstration and deeper explanation:

IBM Works with Cisco to Exorcise Ghosts from Webex Meetings.

Manipulating the handshake

Attacks work by exploiting the virtual handshake that Webex uses to establish a connection between meeting participants. The process works when an end user and server exchange join messages that include information about the attendees, the end-user application, meeting ID, and meeting-room details. In the process, Webex establishes a WebSocket connection between the user and the server.

“By manipulating some of the key fields about an attendee sent over a WebSocket when joining a meeting, the team was able to inject the carefully crafted values that allow someone to join as a ghost attendee,” IBM researchers wrote in a post published on Wednesday. “This worked because of improper handling of the values by the server and other participants’ client applications. For example,…
