Last Week’s Security news: Exploits for ForgeRock, vSphere, Apache Tomcat, new Print Spooler vuln, Kaseya Patch and REvil, SolarWinds, Schneider Electric, Bulletins

Hello guys! The fourth episode of Last Week’s Security news, July 12 – July 18.

I would like to start with some new public exploits. I think these 4 are the most interesting.

  • If you remember, 2 weeks ago I mentioned the ForgeRock Access Manager and OpenAM vulnerability (CVE-2021-35464). Now there is a public RCE exploit for it. ForgeRock OpenAM server is a popular access management solution for web applications. Michael Stepankin, Researcher: “In short, RCE is possible thanks to unsafe Java deserialization in the Jato framework used by OpenAM”. And now this vulnerability is Under Active Attack. “The [Australian Cyber Security Centre] has observed actors exploiting this vulnerability to compromise multiple hosts and deploy additional malware and tools,” the organization said in an alert. ACSC didn’t disclose the nature of the attacks, how widespread they are, or the identities of the threat actors exploiting them”.
  • A new exploit for vSphere Client (CVE-2021-21985). The vSphere Client (HTML5) contains a remote code execution vulnerability due to lack of input validation in the Virtual SAN Health Check plug-in which is enabled by default in vCenter Server. A malicious actor with network access to port 443 may exploit this issue to execute commands with unrestricted privileges on the underlying operating system that hosts vCenter Server.
  • Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 – Open Redirect (CVE-2018-11784). “When the default servlet in Apache Tomcat […] returned a redirect to a directory […] a specially crafted URL could be used to cause the redirect to be generated to any URI of the attackers choice”.
  • Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 – Cross-Site Scripting (CVE-2019-0221). “The SSI printenv command in Apache Tomcat […] echoes user provided data without escaping and is, therefore, vulnerable to XSS”. However, in real life this is unlikely to be used. “SSI is disabled by default. The printenv command is intended for debugging and is unlikely to be present in a production website”.

Last Week’s Security news: PrintNightmare, Kaseya, Intune, Metasploit Docker escape

Hello guys! The second episode of Last Week’s Security news from June 28 to July 4.

The most interesting vulnerability of the last week is of course Microsoft Print Spooler “PrintNightmare”. By sending an RpcAddPrinterDriverEx() RPC request, for example over SMB, a remote, authenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges on a vulnerable Windows system. And there is a public PoC exploit for this vulnerability published by the Chinese security firm Sangfor. And there is some strange story. It turns out that Sangfor published an exploit for the 0day vulnerability. But they thought this vulnerability (CVE-2021-1675) had already been patched as part of the June Micorosft Patch Tuesday. And then it turns out that this is a bug in the Microsoft patch. But Microsoft wrote that this is a different, new vulnerability CVE-2021-34527 and so there were no problems with the previous patch. In any case, a patch for this vulnerability has not yet been released and Microsoft is suggesting two Workarounds. Option 1 – Disable the Print Spooler service, Option 2 – Disable inbound remote printing through Group Policy. Do this first for Domain Controllers and other critical Windows servers. All versions of Windows contain the vulnerable code and are susceptible to exploitation. Also note that the new vulnerability has a flag Exploitation Detected on the MS site.
