BlackBerry Enterprise Service Remote Code Execution (KB35139)

High Nessus Plugin ID 70498


The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


According to its version, the BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) install on the remote host is older than 10.1.3. Such versions may be affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in its Universal Device Service (UDS) component because it does not properly restrict access to the JBoss Remote Method Invocation (RMI) interface. A remote attacker within the adjacent network and with knowledge of the address of that component could leverage this issue to upload arbitrary packages via a request to port 1098 and then execute code as the BES or UDS administration service account.

There are multiple workarounds detailed in the BlackBerry advisory if updating BlackBerry Enterprise Service as a whole is not possible. If any of these workarounds have been applied, this finding may be a false positive.


Update to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.1.3 or later or apply a workaround detailed in the advisory.
