ESA-2017-010: EMC RecoverPoint SSL Stripping Vulnerability

EMC Identifier: ESA-2017-010
CVE Identifier: CVE-2016-6650
Severity Rating: CVSS v3 Base Score: CVSS v3 Score: 6.8 (AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:N).

 
Affected products: 

•EMC RecoverPoint versions prior to 5.0

Summary: 
EMC RecoverPoint update contains a fix for a SSL Stripping Vulnerability that may potentially be exploited by malicious users to compromise the affected system.
 
Details:  
The Unisphere for RecoverPoint management interface does not enforce SSL encryption from the client side. A man-in-the-middle attacker may trick the Unisphere for RecoverPoint browser to send information like login credentials in plain text. RecoverPoint 5.0 now supports HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to mitigate this issue. It can be enabled with a configuration change. For more information, see RecoverPoint’s Security Configuration Guide and RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines Security Configuration Guide. 



Resolution:  

The following EMC RecoverPoint releases contain resolutions to these vulnerabilities:

•EMC RecoverPoint 5.0

•EMC RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines 5.0


EMC recommends all customers upgrade to one of the above versions at the earliest opportunity. Customers are strongly advised to limit administrator privileges to trusted users and change default passwords to minimize the risk. See Security Configuration Guide for details.
