Product:
===========
Sophos Endpoint Protection - Control Panel v10.7

Sophos Endpoint Protection helps secure your workstation by adding
prevention, detection, and response technology on top of your operating
system.
Sophos Endpoint Protection is designed for workstations running Windows and
macOS. It adds exploit technique mitigations, CryptoGuard anti-ransomware,
anti-malware, web security, malicious traffic detection, and deep system
cleanup.



Vulnerability Type:
===================
Insecure Crypto



CVE Reference:
==============
CVE-2018-9233



Security Issue:
================
Sophos endpoint protection control panel authentication uses weak unsalted
unicoded cryptographic hash (SHA1) function, not using salt allows
attackers that gain access to hash
ability to conduct faster cracking attacks using pre-computed dictionaries,
e.g. rainbow tables. This can potentially result in unauthorized access
that could allow for
changing of settings, whitelist or unquarantine files.

Password and config for Sophos endpoint protection control panel is stored
here:
C:\ProgramData\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Virus\Config\machine.xml

e.g.

SHA1 (Unicode) encoding non salted pass = abc123

<TamperProtectionManagement><settings>
<enabled>true</enabled><password>689307D2FC53AF0FB941BC1BB42737CE4F3EF540</password></settings>
</TamperProtectionManagement>


Using PHP's sha1 function with "mb_convert_encoding" as UTF-16LE we can
verify.

C:\>php -r "print sha1(mb_convert_encoding('abc123', 'UTF-16LE', 'UTF-8'));"
