Researchers from TIM’s Red Team Research discovered five new vulnerabilities affecting the CA eHealth Performance Manager product.
Researchers from TIM’s Red Team Research led by Massimiliano Brolli, discovered 5 new vulnerabilities affecting the CA eHealth Performance Manager product.
CA Technologies is an American multinational corporation specialized in business-to-business (B2B) software with a product portfolio focused on Agile software development, DevOps, and computer security software spanning across a wide range of environments such as mainframe, distributed computing, cloud computing, and mobile devices. The company markets nearly 200 software products.
Below the list of vulnerabilities discovered by the researchers:
– CVE-2021-28246 – Severity High 7.8 – Privilege Escalation via Dynamically Linked Shared Object Library;
– CVE-2021-28247 – Severity Medium 5.4 – Multiple Reflected Cross-site Scripting;
– CVE-2021-28248 – Severity High 7.5 – Improper Restriction of Excessive Authentication Attempts;
– CVE-2021-28249 – Severity High 8.8 – Privilege Escalation via Dynamically Linked Shared Object Library;
– CVE-2021-28250 – Severity High 7.8 – Privilege Escalation via SUID/GUID file.
The issues were discovered during laboratory tests, promptly managed in a CVD (Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure) process with the vendor. However, as the CA eHealth Performance Manager product reached the end-of-life state il will receive no security updates, for this reason, experts recommend upgrading to a supported product from CA or to properly harden the operating system affected to mitigate the privilege escalation attacks.
The laboratory has been active for less than a year (based on the registered CVE) and unknown vulnerabilities have already been identified on various products including IBM, Oracle, NOKIA, Siemens, Schneider Electric, Fujitsu, Wowza, Selesta and Flexera. The research team has identified a total of 49 published CVEs, as reported on the NVD (National Vulnerability Database) and on TIM’s Corporate website, available at https://www.gruppotim.it/redteam.
TIM is one of the very few Italian industrial realities to conduct research of undocumented vulnerabilities, for this reason I suggest you to follow them carefully.
