For more information on this vulnerability and more detailed mitigation
instructions, please see Siemens Security Advisory SSA-934525 at the
following location:


NCCIC/ICS-CERT recommends that users take defensive measures to minimize
the risk of exploitation of this vulnerability. Specifically, users should:

    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.
    When remote access is required, use secure methods, such as Virtual
    Private Networks (VPNs), recognizing that VPNs may have vulnerabilities
    and should be updated to the most current version available. Also
    recognize that VPN is only as secure as the connected devices.

ICS-CERT reminds organizations to perform proper impact analysis and risk
assessment prior to deploying defensive measures.

ICS-CERT also provides a section for control systems security recommended
practices on the ICS-CERT web page. Several recommended practices are
available for reading and download, including Improving Industrial Control
Systems Cybersecurity with Defense-in-Depth Strategies.

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.

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.

No known public exploits specifically target this vulnerability. High
skill level is needed to exploit.



A channel accessible by non-endpoint ("man-in-the-middle") vulnerability
has been identified. This could allow an unverified attacker to eavesdrop,
capture, or modify communications.
