Core Impact

Version: 19.1.11

June 29, 2020

Enhancements
  • New Exploits:
    • ATI Technologies Driver atillk64 Kernel Arbitrary Read Write Local Privilege Escalation Exploit: AMD ATI atillk64 allows low-privileged users to interact directly with physical memory by calling one of several driver routines that map physical memory into the virtual address space of the calling process. This could enable low-privileged users to achieve NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM privileges via a DeviceIoControl call associated with MmMapIoSpace, IoAllocateMdl, MmBuildMdlForNonPagedPool, or MmMapLockedPages. (CVE-2020-12138)
    • Eaton HMiSoft VU3 File Parsing Buffer Overflow Exploit: The specific flaw exists within the parsing of wTextLen information within VU3 files. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of the length of user-supplied data prior to copying it to a fixed-length stack-based buffer. (CVE-2020-10639)
    • Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Uncontrolled Search Path Privilege Escalation Exploit: A vulnerability in the installer component of Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client for Windows could allow an authenticated local attacker to copy user-supplied files to system level directories with system level privileges. The vulnerability is due to the incorrect handling of directory paths. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by creating a malicious file and copying the file to a system directory. An exploit could allow the attacker to copy malicious files to arbitrary locations with system level privileges. This could include DLL pre-loading, DLL hijacking, and other related attacks. (CVE-2020-3153)
    • Artica Pandora FMS Events Remote OS Command Injection Exploit: The target parameter in events.php in Pandora FMS 7.0NG 742, 743 and 744 allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary OS commands. (CVE-2020-13851)
    • OpenAudit Remote Code Execution: An issue was discovered in Open-AudIT 3.3.1. There is shell metacharacter injection via attributes to an open-audit/configuration/ URI. An attacker can exploit this by adding an excluded IP address to the global discovery settings (internally called exclude_ip). This exclude_ip value is passed to the exec function in the discoveries_helper.php file (inside the all_ip_list function) without being filtered, which means that the attacker can provide a payload instead of a valid IP address. (CVE-2020-12078)
    • Trident Z Lighting Control Driver Local Privilege Escalation Exploit: The ene.sys driver in Trident Z Lighting Control before v1.00.17 allow local non-privileged users (including low-integrity level processes) to read and write to arbitrary physical memory locations, and consequently gain NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM privileges. (CVE-2020-12446)
    • Advantech WebAccess SCADA DATACORE IOCTL 0x523e Buffer Overflow Exploit: The specific flaw exists within DATACORE server. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of the length of user-supplied data prior to copying it to a fixed-length stack-based buffer. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code in the context of Administrator. (CVE-2020-12002)
    • Microsoft .NET Framework Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability Exploit: An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in .NET Framework which could allow an attacker to elevate their privilege level. (CVE-2020-1066)
Other Fixes
  • Microsoft Windows Diagnostic Tracking Service Arbitrary File Read: An information vulnerability exists when Windows Connected User Experiences and Telemetry Service improperly discloses file information. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability could allow the attacker to read any file on the file system. To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would have to log onto an affected system and run a specially crafted application. The update addresses the vulnerability by changing the way Windows Connected User Experiences and Telemetry Service discloses file information. (CVE-2020-0863)
  • Fix WebApps fingerprinting heuristics that were leading to wrong Framework identification: This update fixes some border cases where the website's Application Framework or Web Application was being wrong identified.
  • Fix Nessus report not fully imported: Nessus scanner import was not adding every open port to the entity created in Impact. Unknown services running on those ports were were skipped. Now they are added to the entity as open ports, but specifying that it's an "unknown" service.

Visual Identity Suite (VIS)

Version 2.3.2 (update of current version)

Jun 01, 2020

Enhancements

This applies in both the Portal, when an end user sets the password through the welcome email link, or changes a password through the Forgot Password link. These passwords must be at lease eight characters long, contain at least one upper case character, one lower case character, one digit, and one special character.

Other Fixes
  • Custom JDE table is missing UDC fields and data dictionary formatting in Viewpoint or browser.

  • When a numeric JDE field that supported variable precision (via the data dictionary) was used in a GROUP BY, an SQL error occurred.

  • Using the Viewpoint Universal Driver for JDE and ADS connections to build a view will allow file list over libraries have more 999 files.

  • Script with EXPR type variables passing blank value does not build quotes properly.

  • From a script a REPORT command successfully produces a spooled file, but fails to email the file due to EML0070 did not cause the script to end abnormally despite an Escape 40 message. The script will now end abnormally.

  • EXECUTE PCFMT(*XLSX) with RCDFMT created excel file that is corrupt.

  • EXECUTE command can write the view results to another IBMi by specifying the appropriate TOSERVER and TOTABLE using a runtime prompted view failed.

  • EXECUTE to XLSX file using a *LOCALSYS/*SERVER view gave MCH0603 unmonitored by QRYO07 in rare instances when the offset for the column headings equaled 48.

  • QSTRING variable values without default values now truncate after first 3 positions

  • Sequel Install may fail if CPI432A was previously journaled.

  • Repeated running of the same view using *LOCALSYS *SEQUEL may result in MCH1210 ‘Receiver value too small to hold result’.

  • In SWS Repository mode a Host Report using a QSTRING variable did not run due to a conflict with the quotes.

  • SWS Repository mode data source definitions for JDE or ADS will now allow more than one library in the library list.

  • Changes to Graph axis label controls on a dashboard were not reflected SWI.

  • In some instances, from SWI Explorer, a dashboard would display the message: "Dashboard <library/dashboard> is not a valid Sequel Dashboard".

Viewpoint 11

Version: 11.20.174

June 29, 2020

Enhancements
  • Designing views with variables using *ALL/*OMIT is more user friendly and will only require checking the Null Variable box instead of specifying leading/trailing values to omit. This enhancement requires host version 11.14 (or 10.14 for Showcase) and applies to views using *SERVER syntax.

Viewpoint 10

Version: 10.20.174

June 29, 2020

Enhancements
  • Designing views with variables using *ALL/*OMIT is more user friendly and will only require checking the Null Variable box instead of specifying leading/trailing values to omit. This enhancement requires host version 11.14 (or 10.14 for Showcase) and applies to views using *SERVER syntax.

  • The Viewpoint Explorer in Repository modes allows running and opening of other files like PDF and Excel spreadsheets (SQ-1937).

June 29, 2020

Other Fixes
  • The dbq that had a lot of subtotal information (more than 2000 characters) and migration utility created view with the Subtotal JSON that is corrupted so Viewpoint gave a General exception: ‘com.google.gson.JsonSyntaxException: com.google.gson.stream.MalformedJsonException’.
