ESA-2016-096: EMC Celerra, VNX1, VNX2 and VNXe SMB NTLM Authentication Weak Nonce Vulnerability

EMC Identifier: ESA-2016-096
CVE Identifier: CVE-2016-0917
Severity Rating: CVSS v3 Base Score: 9.8 (AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

Affected products:  
EMC Software: EMC VNX2 File OE versions prior to
EMC Software: EMC VNX1 File OE versions prior to
EMC Software: EMC VNXe (all supported versions)
EMC Software: EMC Celerra (all supported versions)Note: EMC Unity (all versions) is not affected by this issue.

SMB implementation in EMC Celerra, VNX1, VNX2 and VNXe are affected by an NTLM authentication weak nonce vulnerability that could potentially be exploited by malicious users to compromise the affected system. 

An unauthenticated remote attacker may potentially exploit the NTLM challenge-response authentication protocol causing the server to generate duplicate challenges/nonces to potentially access the SMB service of the target system under the credentials of an authorized user. Depending on the privileges of the user, the attacker will be able to obtain and modify files on the target system and execute arbitrary code. This issue is similar to the Microsoft Windows SMB implementation issue that is described under CVE-2010-0231 (https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2010-0231).  

The following releases contain resolutions for this issue:
- - -	EMC VNX2 File OE versions
- - -	EMC VNX1 File OE versions

EMC recommends all customers upgrade at the earliest opportunity. This advisory will be updated when fixes for EMC VNXe will be available.  There is currently no plan to release fixes for EMC Celerra based on the current support lifecycle of the product. 

Customers that are unable to upgrade should use Kerberos authentication instead of NTLM.
