RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ASSET OWNERS WITH AFFECTED BAUMÃœLLER PRODUCTS

in December 2015, and no patches are planned for these products. Baumüller
recommends that asset owners contact them to discuss intermediate response
options.

Baumuller's contact information is available at the following URL:

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ASSET OWNERS WITH AFFECTED BECKHOFF PRODUCTS

Asset owners of an identified Beckhoff product should determine if a
vulnerable version of eWebServer is in use. Asset owners using a vulnerable
version of eWebServer should contact their supplier or IniNet Solutions
GmbH to obtain a new version of eWebServer. Beckhoff has stated that
IniNet Solutions GmbH products are not a Beckhoff product. eWebServer
is an application software by a third-party vendor developed and sold
independent of Beckhoff. Beckhoff asserts that their (standard) products
are not affected.

ICS-CERT encourages asset owners to take additional defensive measures to
protect against this and other cybersecurity risks.

    Maintain layered physical and logical security to implement
    defense-in-depth design practices for ICS environments.
    Minimize network exposure for all control system devices and/or systems,
    and ensure that they are not accessible from the Internet.
    Locate control system networks and remote devices behind firewalls,
    and isolate them from the business network.

ICS-CERT also provides a section for control systems
security recommended practices on the ICS-CERT web page at:
http://ics-cert.us-cert.gov/content/recommended-practices. Several
recommended practices are available for reading and download, including
Improving Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity with Defense-in-Depth
Strategies. ICS-CERT reminds organizations to perform proper impact analysis
and risk assessment prior to deploying defensive measures.

Additional mitigation guidance and recommended practices are
publicly available in the ICS-CERT Technical Information Paper,
ICS-TIP-12-146-01B--Targeted Cyber Intrusion Detection and Mitigation
Strategies, that is available for download from the ICS-CERT web site
(http://ics-cert.us-cert.gov/).

Organizations observing any suspected malicious activity should follow their
established internal procedures and report their findings to ICS-CERT for
tracking and correlation against other incidents.
