Security Bulletin: Tivoli Endpoint Manager LDAP and AD Authentication Code
Tivoli Endpoint Manager
Security Bulletin for Tivoli Endpoint Manager LDAP and AD Authentication Code
A vulnerability was discovered today with LDAP and Active Directory
authentication that could allow an attacker to impersonate any
LDAP-authenticated Console user. This vulnerability only exists in the 9.0.777
(patch 2) release of the IBM Endpoint Manager Server (root server component).
This vulnerability does not affect Web Reports.
CVEID: This is not a publicly disclosed vulnerability and is specific only to
the Tivoli Endpoint Manager product code base.
AFFECTED PRODUCTS AND VERSIONS:
Tivoli Endpoint Manager server component version 9.0.777
Administrators are advised to upgrade their IEM Server immediately to 9.0.787
(patch 4) in order to resolve the vulnerability. Upgrade fixlets for 9.0.787
are currently available in the BES Support site (version 1125). 9.0.777
upgrade fixlets have been removed from the BES Support site, and customers
who planned to upgrade to 9.0.777 should instead use 9.0.787, which contains
the needed fix.
If it is not possible to upgrade, administrators should disable LDAP and
Active Directory authentication to close the vulnerability.
