Security Bulletin: IBM Endpoint Manager 9.1.1065 Ã¢Â€Â“ OpenSSL Vulnerability
More support for:
Tivoli Endpoint Manager
A security vulnerability has been discovered in OpenSSL that affects some
products in the IBM Endpoint Manager portfolio.
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive
information, caused by an error in the TLS/DTLS heartbeat functionality. An
attacker could exploit this vulnerability to expose 64k of private memory and
retrieve secret keys. This vulnerability can be remotely exploited,
authentication is not required and the exploit is not complex. An exploit can
only partially affect the confidentially, but not integrity or availability.
CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/92322
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
Warning: We strongly encourage you to take action as soon as possible as
potential implications to your environment may be more serious than indicated
by the CVSS score.
*The CVSS Environment Score is customer environment specific and will
ultimately impact the Overall CVSS Score. Customers can evaluate the impact of
this vulnerability in their environments by accessing the links in the
Reference section of this Security Bulletin.
Affected Products and Versions
SUA 9.1/SCA 1.4
If you are using Endpoint Manager 9.0 or earlier, you are unaffected. You
should delay upgrading to 9.1 until a patch is released. We have removed the
9.1 upgrade fixlets from BES Support.
If you are using Endpoint Manager 9.1, you can mitigate your exposure to
this vulnerability by taking the following steps until a 9.1 patch is
1) Limit network access to the root server to only trusted hosts.
2) Rotate the server signing key on the root server on a regular basis [a].
3) If any custom HTTPS keys are being used in the root server or web
reports, those keys should also be rotated.
4) Avoid sending any sensitive data via mailboxes or secure parameters to
relays or the root server.
5) Consider temporarily disconnecting any internet-facing relays.
The IBM Endpoint Manager team is working on a patch release that will fix this
vulnerability. We will make this patch available as soon as possible, and we
recommend that you make plans to upgrade from 9.1 to the patch release as soon
as becomes available.
Software Use Analysis / Security Compliance Analytics
If you are using SUA 1.x, SUA 2.x/9.x, or SCA with IEM version earlier than
9.1, you are unaffected.
If you are using SUA 2.2 Patch 3 (only if deployed on IEM platform 9.1),
SUA 9.1 or SCA (if deployed on IEM platform 9.1), you can mitigate your
exposure to this vulnerability by taking the following steps:
If you have already downloaded the product, we recommend that you not install
it, and delete the packages.
If you have already installed it, follow the recommendations outlined in the
security vulnerability note and apply a patch as soon as it becomes available.
Packages with the vulnerability have been already removed from the IBM site. A
patch will be published shortly.
MDT Bundle Creator 3.3 is affected by this vulnerability only when using an
https proxy to download packages. Not using a proxy, or downloading the files
ahead of time and caching will remove the use of OpenSSL and the related
A patch will be released very shortly that disables the proxy functionality as
a remediation measure.
All Endpoint Manager integrated versions of Remote Control are affected by
this vulnerability. Hotfixes will be released as soon as they are available.
The following products are not affected by this vulnerability:
- - Mobile Device Management
- - Software Distribution
- - Server Automation
- - Patch Management
- - Power Management
- - Core Protection
- - Security Configuration Management
Operating System Patch Content
OS Patch streams are being closely monitored and patches will be released as
quickly as possible.
