Cisco ASA Challenge-Response Tunnel Group Selection Bypass Vulnerability

http://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityNotice/CVE-2014-8023

CVE ID: CVE-2014-8023

Release Date: 2015 February 16 18:22  UTC (GMT) 

Last Updated: 2015 February 16 19:55  UTC (GMT) 

Summary

A vulnerability in the authentication code of Cisco ASA Software could allow 
an authenticated, remote attacker to access resources of a VPN tunnel group.

The vulnerability is due to improper implementation of the tunnel group 
selection when a user authenticates to the remote access VPN via the 
challenge-response mechanism. This vulnerability may affect Cisco ASA 
configured to authenticate remote access VPN users via LDAP, RADIUS, TACACS+,
and RSA if a challenge-response is needed for authentication. Cisco ASA 
Software configured for Clientless or AnyConnect SSL VPN is affected by this 
vulnerability.

An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by crafting a response to the 
Cisco ASA with a different tunnel group parameter. A successful exploit could
allow the attacker to bypass the tunnel group restriction and authenticate to 
a different tunnel group than the one selected during the authentication 
phase. This could result in accessing a different set of resources.
