ESA-2014-081 RSA Identity Management and Governance Authentication Bypass
EMC Identifier: ESA-2014-081
CVE Identifier: CVE-2014-4619
Severity Rating: CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
RSA IMG versions 6.5.x and 6.8.x
RSA Identity Management and Governance announces security fixes to address
potential authentication bypass vulnerability when NovelIM systems are used
RSA IMG systems configured with NovellIM as the authentication source may be
subject to a potential authentication bypass vulnerability due to the fact
that no password is required to authenticate legitimate users. A malicious
user with knowledge of a valid user name can leverage this vulnerability to
perform operations with the privileges of the authenticated user and
potentially cause audit-attribution problems.
This issue does not affect the built-in RSA Aveska Administrator account or
users authenticated via other authentication schemes.
The following versions of RSA IMG contain resolutions to these issues:
RSA IMG 6.5.1 P11 and later
RSA IMG 6.5.2 P02HF01 and later
RSA IMG 6.8.1 P07 and later
RSA strongly recommends all customers using NovellIM-based authentication to
upgrade to one of versions listed above at the earliest opportunity.
