IBM BigFix Platform 9.x < 9.5.3 Remote Command Injection
High Nessus Plugin ID 94961
SynopsisAn infrastructure management application running on the remote host is affected by a remote command injection vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, the IBM BigFix Platform application running on the remote host is 9.x prior to 9.5.3. It is, therefore, affected by a command injection vulnerability in the Web Reports component. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to inject commands that are executed with privileges that are unnecessary and higher than expected. Note that if the Web Reports component is installed as a stand-alone application without other BigFix components, then it not affected by the vulnerability.
IBM BigFix was formerly known as Tivoli Endpoint Manager, IBM Endpoint Manager, and IBM BigFix Endpoint Manager.
SolutionUpgrade to IBM BigFix Platform version 9.5.3 or later. Alternatively, as a workaround, ensure that Web Reports is installed remotely on a distinct and isolated machine that can be locked down (i.e., isolated from the root server and other BigFix components).
