CVSS v3 6.1

ATTENTION: Remotely exploitable/low skill level to exploit.

Vendor: Certec EDV GmbH

Equipment: atvise scada

Vulnerabilities: Cross-Site Scripting, Header Injection


The following versions of atvise scada, a HMI configuration platform,
are affected:

- --------- Begin Update A Part 1 of 2 --------

  atvise scada prior to Version 3.0 without the vendor 
  built-in security mechanism activated.

- --------- End Update A Part 1 of 2 ----------


Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could cause the device
that the attacker is accessing to execute arbitrary code, affecting the
integrity of the device.


- --------- Begin Update A Part 2 of 2 --------

Certec EDV GmbH advises affected users to activate the built-in security 
mechanism (login, https, protected calls, etc.) of the product as described in 
the documentation. Users can also upgrade to the newest version of the software 
available on the Certec EDV GmbH web site (a user login will be needed to 
obtain the latest version):

In order to fully mitigate the vulnerabilities Certec EDV GmbH recommends that 
users follow the guidelines in the atvise scada documentation for enabling 
security measures that can be found in the following sections:

    HTTP/HTTPS support,
    Protected calls,
    Login and user management, and
    User and rights.

- --------- End Update A Part 2 of 2 ----------

NCCIC/ICS-CERT recommends that users take defensive measures to minimize the
risk of exploitation of these vulnerabilities. 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 ICSCERT 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.

In addition, ICS-CERT recommends that users take the following measures
to protect themselves from social engineering attacks:

    Do not click web links or open unsolicited attachments in email messages.
    Refer to Recognizing and Avoiding Email Scams for more information on
    avoiding email scams.
    Refer to Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks for more
    information on social engineering attacks.
