ESA-2014-081 RSA® Identity Management and Governance Authentication Bypass Vulnerability

EMC Identifier: ESA-2014-081

CVE Identifier: CVE-2014-4619

Severity Rating: CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

Affected products:

RSA IMG versions 6.5.x and 6.8.x

Summary:

RSA Identity Management and Governance announces security fixes to address potential authentication bypass vulnerability when NovelIM systems are used for authentication.

Details:

RSA IMG systems configured with NovellIM as the authentication source may be subject to a potential authentication bypass vulnerability due to the fact that no password is required to authenticate legitimate users. A malicious user with knowledge of a valid user name can leverage this vulnerability to perform operations with the privileges of the authenticated user and potentially cause audit-attribution problems.

This issue does not affect the built-in RSA Aveska Administrator account or users authenticated via other authentication schemes.

Resolution:

The following versions of RSA IMG contain resolutions to these issues:

RSA IMG 6.5.1 P11 and later

RSA IMG 6.5.2 P02HF01 and later

RSA IMG 6.8.1 P07 and later

RSA strongly recommends all customers using NovellIM-based authentication to upgrade to one of versions listed above at the earliest opportunity.
