Alert Details


Computer Network Defence Alert State

 

secwiz blankback cro tp

The Computer Network Defence Alert State is designed to give a granular and more dynamic visualisation of the current security threat.  Increase in alert state will occur immediately upon detection of a new threat and drop again by one level each working day.  The rationale is that vulnerabilities often occur in clusters, therefore reducing the alert state again quickly, will increase your visibility of new threats to the same product.  It is important that the radar page is viewed at least daily in order to track these changes. Reductions in alert state occur at approximately 1900 GMT/UTC. Significant vulnerabilities may remain for longer. Vulnerabilities on this page are predominantly remotely executable, very few local server exploits will be shown.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Current Alerts

AlertTitleSCADA

A stack buffer overflow vulnerability and a privilege escalation vulnerability were identified in Meinberg’s NTP Time Servers Interface.  Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could cause a buffer overflow condition that may allow escalation to root privileges.
More info.

A resource management vulnerability exists in Rockwell Automation’s Allen-Bradley Stratix 5400 and Allen-Bradley Stratix 5410 industrial networking switches.
More info.

A buffer overflow vulnerability has been identified in Unitronics VisiLogic. By exploiting this vulnerability, an attacker may be able to remotely execute arbitrary code.
More info.

AlertTitleNovell

Novell has published a security update for NetIQ Identity Manager.

More info.

AlertTitleFortinet

Fortiweb contains a CSRF vulnerability could allow attackers to change admin password with crafted forms.
More info.

AlertTitleHuawei

The HiSuite mobile assistant software on PCs contains a DLL hijacking vulnerability which allows an attacker to load the DLL file of the attacker's choosing and execute arbitrary code.
More info.

AlertTitleNetwork

The router ASUS DSL-N55U is prone to reflected cross site scripting and information disclosure vulnerabilities.
More info.

AlertTitleBlank

 
 

AlertTitleLinux

OpenSUSE published a kernel update that fixes several security vulnerabilities, a few of which were exploitable remotely.
More info.

RedHat published a kernel update that corrects remotely exploitable security vulnerabilities in SCTP and ICMP.
More info.

Oracle Linux has published a security update for the kernel.
More info.

Gentoo has published seven separate security bulletins.
More info.

AlertTitleBlueCoat

The HTTPS web UI in PacketShaper S-Series 11.5 may use insecure cryptographic parameters for incoming management connections.  A remote attacker who can be a man-in-the-middle, under certain circumstances, may be able to exploit this vulnerability to obtain user authentication credentials.  The attacker can then view/modify appliance configuration and view appliance statistics.

Alert Definitions

NORMAL This alert state represents the normal level of security with minimal activity relating to the product.  The next stage above this level is 2, however falling alerts will go through 1 when returning to normal.

LOW This alert state indicates that an alert has been recognised for this product within the last few days but it is now returning to normal.  Inclusion of this level is for viewers that don't monitor this alert system regularly.

INCREASED This alert state indicates a need to increase the security posture due to an emerging threat for which there is currently no exploit, or you are witnessing the reduction in alert state after being at level 3 for more than 1 working day.

HIGH This alert state indicates a significant threat to the product, where exploits exist or where the vulnerability is potentially devastating.

PATCHES This alert state indicates that patches are available for vulnerabilities that had previously resulted in a need for the alert state to increase and subsequently fall. The level of 2 or 3 indicates the urgency to patch.

EXPLOIT This alert state indicates that exploit code is available for vulnerabilities that had previously resulted in a need for the alert state to increase and subsequently fall. The level of 2 or 3 indicates the threat of the exploit.

AlertNumberZ3

ZERO This alert state indicates that a vulnerability has been announced without the opportunity for the vendor to patch it before the details are made known.  These can be especially dangerous if exploit code is available. The level of 2 or 3 indicates the threat of the vulnerability.
