Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance Multiple Security Vulnerabilities

Risk

High

Date Discovered

August 8, 2019

Description

Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance is prone to multiple security vulnerabilities. Attackers can exploit these issues to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, control how the page is rendered to the user, obtain sensitive information or bypass certain security restrictions and aid in brute-force attacks. Other attacks are also possible. Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance versions 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2 are vulnerable.

Technologies Affected

  • Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance 2.0
  • Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance 2.1
  • Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance 2.2

Recommendations

Permit local access for trusted individuals only. Where possible, use restricted environments and restricted shells.
Allow only trusted and accountable individuals to have local interactive access to the vulnerable computer.

Block external access at the network boundary, unless external parties require service.
Restricting access to trusted computers only may reduce the risk of exploits.

Run all software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights.
To reduce the impact of latent vulnerabilities, always run nonadministrative software as an unprivileged user with minimal access rights.

Deploy network intrusion detection systems to monitor network traffic for malicious activity.
NIDS may detect and identify suspicious activity. Review and audit logs on a regular basis to identify attacks and breaches of policy.

Do not follow links provided by unknown or untrusted sources.
Web users should be cautious about following links to sites that are provided by unfamiliar or suspicious sources. Filtering HTML from emails may help remove a possible vector for transmitting malicious links to users.

Set web browser security to disable the execution of JavaScript.
Since a successful exploit of some of these issues requires malicious code to execute in web clients, consider disabling support for script code and active content within the client browser. Note that this mitigation tactic might adversely affect legitimate websites that rely on the execution of browser-based script code.

Updates are available. Please see the references or vendor advisory for more information.
