[R3] LCE 5.0.0 Fixes Multiple Third-party Library Vulnerabilities

Critical

Synopsis

Log Correlation Engine (LCE) 4.8.2 is possibly impacted by multiple vulnerabilities reported in third-party libraries. Tenable has not investigated each one to determine if it is exploitable or the vulnerable code path can be reached. Instead, Dev has upgraded the impacted libraries as a faster and safer alternative. Due to the number of library upgrades and the potential for any of these issues to impact LCE users, we strongly encourage you to upgrade. In some cases, older versions than 4.8.2 may be impacted by a subset of these issues.

The following vulnerabilities have been resolved with the updated libraries.

  • OpenSSL CRL Handling Unspecified NULL Pointer Dereference DoS (VulnDB 144804 / CVE-2016-7052)
  • OpenSSL Consecutive Warning Alerts Handling CPU Exhaustion Remote DoS Weakness (VulnDB 146198 / CVE-2016-8610)
  • libcurl lib/rand.c randit() Function Uninitialized Random Value Weak Cryptographic Operations (VulnDB 149163 / CVE-2016-9594)
  • jQuery UI dialog() Function closeText Parameter XSS (VulnDB 142096 / CVE-2016-7103)
  • Handlebars lib/handlebars/utils.js Template Unquoted Attributes Improper Escaping XSS Weakness (VulnDB 131671 / CVE-2015-8861 / CVE-2015-8862)

LCE Windows Client 4.4.0 is possibly impacted by multiple vulnerabilities reported in third-party libraries. Tenable has not investigated each one to determine if it is exploitable or the vulnerable code path can be reached. Instead, Dev has upgraded the impacted libraries as a faster and safer alternative. Due to the number of library upgrades and the potential for any of these issues to impact LCE Windows Client users, we strongly encourage you to upgrade. In some cases, older versions than 4.4.0 may be impacted by a subset of these issues. Because the Windows Client only connects to an administrator-designated LCE server, upgrading third-party libraries wasn't given as high of a priority since exploitation would require someone controlling the LCE server or conducting a MitM attack on a privileged segment of the network.

The following vulnerabilities have been resolved with the updated libraries. Note that several of these issues do not have a CVE assigned.

  • OpenSSL Bignum Squaring Incorrect Result Weakness (VulnDB 116796 / 2014-3570)

  • Note that the CVSSv2 score associated with this advisory is specific to an the OpenSSL integration into LCE Windows Client and assumes a worst-case scenario. These updates are proactive; Tenable has had no reports of exploitation and some of these issues may not impact LCE or the LCE Windows Client at all.

    Please note that Tenable strongly recommends that LCE be installed on a subnet that is not Internet addressable.
