======================================================================= Vendor description: ------------------- "genugate Firewall: Well Protected Against Attacks Your level of IT security is determined largely at the interface between the Internet
and the local network. The attacks from the outside and the data   sent from the inside pass through this point. The High Resistance Firewall genugate satisfies the highest requirements:   two different firewall systems – an application level gateway
and   a packet filter, each on separate hardware – are combined to form a compact solution. genugate is approved for classification levels German and NATO RESTRICTED and RESTREINT UE/EU RESTRICTED. genugate is certified according to CC EAL 4+" URL: <> Business recommendation: ------------------------ The vendor provides a patched version
for the affected products which should be installed immediately. Customers should also adhere to security best practices such as network segmentation and limiting access to the admin panel. This is also a requirement for certified and approved
environments. Vulnerability overview/description: ----------------------------------- 1) Authentication bypass vulnerability (CVE-2021-27215) The Admin Web interface, the Sidechannel Web and Userweb interface can use different methods to perform the
authentication of a user. A specific authentication method during login does not check the provided data and returns OK for any authentication request. This allows an attacker to login to the admin panel with a user of his choice, e.g the root user
with highest privileges or even a non-existing user. An attacker needs to have network access to the admin interface. Certified and approved environments mandate that the admin interface is only reachable through a strictly separated network.
Nevertheless, it is a highly critical security vulnerability and must be patched immediately. Proof of concept: ----------------- 1) Authentication bypass vulnerability (CVE-2021-27215) During the authentication requests at the login page of the
admin web interface, the Sidechannel Web and Userweb interface, certain HTTP POST parameters are passed to the server. By manipulating a specific parameter method, an attacker is able to bypass the authentication easily and login as arbitrary user. [
Detailed proof of concept removed ] A proof of concept video is available at <> Vulnerable / tested versions: ----------------------------- The versions 9.6 p0 and 9.6 p6 of the Genua GenuGate
firewall were tested and found to be vulnerable. The p6 version was the latest version at the time of discovery. The supported and released product versions 9.0, 9.0 Z and 10.1 are affected as well. Vendor contact timeline: ------------------------
