RESOLUTION

HPE Aruba has provided hotfixes for ClearPass 6.6.5, 6.6.4, and 6.5.7. Use
one of the following methods to install the appropriate hotfix:

Install the Hotfix Online Using the Software Updates Portal:
 
   1. Open ClearPass Policy Manager and go to Administration - Agents and
Software
   Updates - Software Updates.  
   
   2. In the Firmware and Patch Updates area, find the "ClearPass 6.5.7
Hotfix
   Patch for CVE-2017-5638" or "ClearPass 6.6.4 Hotfix Patch for
CVE-2017-5638"
   patch and click the Download button in its row. 
    
   3. Click Install.  
   
   4. When the installation is complete and the status is shown as "Needs
   Restart", proceed to restart ClearPass. After reboot, the status for the
   patch will be shown as Installed. The ClearPass Policy Manager version
   number will not change.  

   
Installing the hotfix Offline Using the Patch File from
support.arubanetworks.com:
 
   1. Download the "ClearPass 6.5.7 Hotfix Patch for CVE-2017-5638" or
   "ClearPass 6.6.4 Hotfix Patch for CVE-2017-5638" patch from the Support
site.
     
   2. Open the ClearPass Policy Manager Admin UI and go to Administration -
   Agents and Software Updates - Software Updates.  
   3. At the bottom of the Firmware and Patch Updates area, click Import
Updates
   and browse to the downloaded patch file. The name and description once
   imported may differ from the name and remark on the support site
   as these were adjusted after posting. This is purely a cosmetic
discrepancy.  
   
   4. Click Install.  
   
   5. When the installation is complete and the status is shown as Needs
Restart,
   proceed to restart ClearPass. After reboot, the status for the patch will
   be shown as Installed. The ClearPass Policy Manager version number will
   not change.  


Workarounds
- - ----------- 
Restrict access to the Policy Manager Admin Web Interface. This can be
accomplished by navigating to Administration - Server Manager -
Server Configuration - Server-Name - Network - Restrict Access and
only allowing non-public or network management networks.

acquiring the software updates.
