Vulnerabilities

A Vulnerability is a state in a computing system (or set of systems) which either (a) allows an attacker to execute commands as another user, (b) allows an attacker to access data that is contrary to the specified access restrictions for that data, (c) allows an attacker to pose as another entity, or (d) allows an attacker to conduct a denial of service.Advisories relating to Symantec products may be viewed here.

Cobham EXPLORER 710 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities

Risk:
High
Date Discovered:
09 October 2019
Description:
Cobham EXPLORER 710 is prone to multiple security vulnerabilities: 1. Multiple security weaknesses 2. Multiple access-bypass vulnerabilities 3. An information-disclosure vulnerability 4. An arbitrary file upload vulnerability An attacker may exploit these issues to perform certain unauthorized actions and gain access to the affected application, bypass security restrictions, upload arbitrary files and disclose sensitive information.
Technologies Affected
  • Cobham EXPLORER 710 1.07
  • Cobham EXPLORER 710 1.08
Recommendations
  • Block external access at the network boundary, unless external parties require service.
    If global access isn't needed, filter access to the affected computer at the network boundary. Restricting access to only trusted computers and networks might greatly reduce the likelihood of successful exploits.
  • Run all software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights.
    To reduce the impact of latent vulnerabilities, always run nonadministrative software as an unprivileged user with minimal access rights.
  • Do not follow links provided by unknown or untrusted sources.
    Web users should be cautious about following links to sites that are provided by unfamiliar or suspicious sources. Filtering HTML from emails may help remove a possible vector for transmitting malicious links to users.
  • Set web browser security to disable the execution of JavaScript.
    Since a successful exploit of these issues allows malicious code to execute in web clients, consider disabling support for script code and active content within the client browser. Note that this mitigation tactic might adversely affect legitimate websites that rely on the execution of browser-based script code.
Currently, we are not aware of any vendor-supplied patches. If you feel we are in error or are aware of more recent information, please mail us at: vuldb@securityfocus.com.
