Subject: [Newsletter/Marketing] [ISN] Hundreds of Orpak gas station
 systems can be easily hacked thanks to hardcoded passwords

Homeland Security’s cybersecurity agency says a popular gas station software 
contains several security vulnerabilities that require “low skill” to exploit.

The advisory, posted by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency 
(CISA), gave the Orpak SiteOmat software a rare vulnerability severity rating 
of 9.8 out of 10.

Orpak’s SiteOmat systems monitor the amount of fuel stored in a gas station’s 
tanks, as well as their temperature and pressure. The software also sets the 
price of the gas and processes card payments. Its user interface is password 
protected, preventing unauthorized access to its data or configuration.

According to the advisory, the software contained a hardcoded password set by 
the manufacturer, which if used would grant unfettered access to the system.

CISA didn’t publish the password.
