Siemens Digsi Incorrect Default Permissions

high Tenable.ot Plugin ID 500431
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


A vulnerability has been identified in DIGSI 4 (All versions < V4.94 SP1 HF 1). Several folders in the %PATH% are writeable by normal users. As these folders are included in the search for dlls, an attacker could place dlls there with code executed by SYSTEM.
