Description

ePO is vulnerable to the multiple CVEs reported in Oracle's January 2016 Java SE update. Collectively, these vulnerabilities affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the server.

Oracle's Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Third Party Bulletins.
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/cpujan2016-2367955.html#AppendixJAVA

This Intel Security ePO update resolves the following issues:

CVE-2015-8472
Buffer overflow in the png_set_PLTE function in libpng before 1.0.65, 1.1.x and 1.2.x before 1.2.55, 1.3.x, 1.4.x before 1.4.18, 1.5.x before 1.5.25, and 1.6.x before 1.6.20. A successful exploit allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possible other unspecified impact via a small bit-depth value in an IHDR (image header) chunk in a PNG image.

NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2015-8126.

https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2015-8472

CVE-2015-8126
Multiple buffer overflows in the (1) png_set_PLTE and (2) png_get_PLTE functions in libpng before 1.0.64, 1.1.x and 1.2.x before 1.2.54, 1.3.x and 1.4.x before 1.4.17, 1.5.x before 1.5.24, and 1.6.x before 1.6.19. A successful exploit can allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or other unspecified impact via a small bit-depth value in an IHDR (image header) chunk in a PNG image.
https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2015-8126

CVE-2016-0475
Unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded, and JRockit components in Oracle Java SE 8u66; Java SE Embedded 8u65; and JRockit R28.3.8. A successful exploit allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality and integrity via unknown vectors related to Libraries.
https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2016-0475

CVE-2016-0466
Unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded, and JRockit components in Oracle Java SE 6u105, 7u91, and 8u66; Java SE Embedded 8u65; and JRockit R28.3.8. A successful exploit allows remote attackers to affect availability via vectors related to JAXP.
https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2016-0466

Affected Component:
  • ePO Java core web services

Remediation

Oracle Java 7.0 has officially reached its End of Life (EOL) date in April of 2015. The Java version currently supported in ePO 5.1.x and 5.3.x has been upgraded to Java 8.0.

These issues are remediated with ePO 5.x Hotfix 1124228. These fixes will be included in the next ePO patch when scheduled.
  • Users of ePO 4.6.x should upgrade to ePO 5.1.3 or ePO 5.3.1 and then apply hotfix EPO5xHF1124228.zip.
  • Users of ePO 5.0.x and 5.1.x should upgrade to ePO 5.1.3 or ePO 5.3.1 and then apply hotfix EPO5xHF1124228.zip.
  • Users of ePO 5.3.0 should upgrade to ePO 5.3.1 and then apply hotfix EPO5xHF1124228.zip.
Refer to the upgrade instructions in PD26354 - ePolicy Orchestrator 5.x Hotfix 1124228 Release Notes for further details.

NOTE: All FIPS 140-2 installed customers running ePO 4.6.4 can upgrade to ePO 5.1.x for maintaining FIPS compliant installations.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do I know whether my Intel Security product is vulnerable or not?

For ePO:
Check the version and build of ePO that is installed. For information on how to check the version, see KB52634.

What is CVSS?
CVSS, or Common Vulnerability Scoring System, is the result of the National Infrastructure Advisory Council’s effort to standardize a system of assessing the criticality of a vulnerability. This system offers an unbiased criticality score between 0 and 10 that customers can use to judge how critical a vulnerability is and plan accordingly. For more information, please visit the CVSS website at: http://www.first.org/cvss/.

When calculating CVSS v2 scores, Intel Security has adopted a philosophy that fosters consistency and repeatability. Our guiding principle for CVSS scoring is to score the exploit under consideration by itself. We consider only the immediate and direct impact of the exploit under consideration. We do not factor into a score any potential follow-on exploits that might be made possible by successful exploitation of the issue being scored.

CVSS v3 scoring is in final review as of December 2015. CVSS v2 will be replaced with CVSS v3 when v3 is fully approved. Security bulletins will have scores for both versions for at least 6 months after v3 is fully approved.
