ABB PB610 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities

Risk

High

Date Discovered

December 5, 2019

Description

ABB PB610 Panel Builder 600 is prone to the following vulnerabilities: 1. Multiple denial-of-service vulnerabilities 2. An arbitrary code-execution vulnerability 3. An unauthorized file-access vulnerability Attackers can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code, access or read arbitrary files that contain sensitive information or to access files outside of the restricted directory, or cause denial-of-service conditions. ABB PB610 Panel Builder 600 version 2.8.0.424 and prior are vulnerable.

Technologies Affected

  • ABB PB610 Panel Builder 600 1.91
  • ABB PB610 Panel Builder 600 2.8.0.367
  • ABB PB610 Panel Builder 600 2.8.0.424

Recommendations

Block external access at the network boundary, unless external parties require service.
If global access isn't needed, filter access to the affected computer at the network boundary. Restricting access to only trusted computers and networks might greatly reduce the likelihood of a successful exploit.

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.
Deploy NIDS to monitor network traffic for signs of anomalous or suspicious activity such as unexplained incoming and outgoing traffic. This may indicate exploit attempts or activity that results from successful exploits.

Implement multiple redundant layers of security.
Memory-protection schemes (such as nonexecutable stack and heap configurations and randomly mapped memory segments) will complicate exploits of memory-corruption vulnerabilities.

Implement multiple redundant layers of security.
Use of multiple redundant layers of encryption may reduce exposure to this and other latent vulnerabilities.

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