ICS-CERT Publishes Two Advisories

Today the DHS ICS-CERT published two control system security advisories for products from Belden and Eaton.

Belden Advisory

This advisory describes a path traversal vulnerability in the Belden Hirschmann GECKO. The vulnerability was reported by Davy Douhine of RandoriSec. Belden produced a new version to mitigate the vulnerability. There is no indication that Douhine was provided an opportunity to verify the efficacy of the fix.

ICS-CERT reports that a highly skilled attacker could remotely exploit this vulnerability to access a copy of the configuration file of an affected device without authenticating, exposing sensitive information. The Belden Security Bulletin notes that only administrators that are using the configuration download feature are affected.

Eaton Advisory

This advisory describes path traversal vulnerability in legacy Eaton ePDUs. The vulnerability was reported by Maxim Rupp. The affected products are no longer supported; Eaton suggests using defense in depth mitigation measures if the devices are not replaced.

ICS-CERT reports that a relatively unskilled attacker could remotely exploit the vulnerability to access configuration files.

NOTE: For some reason this vulnerability was presented in last year’s format. I’ve already gotten so used to the new format that this reversion feels odd. Oh well….
