vulnerability in B. Braun Medicals SpaceCom module, which is integrated into 
the SpaceStation docking station. B. Braun has produced a software update for
the SpaceCom module to mitigate this vulnerability.

This vulnerability could be exploited remotely.


The following versions of the SpaceCom module, used with the SpaceStation 
docking station, are affected:

SpaceStation with SpaceCom module (integrated as part number 8713142U), 
software versions prior to Version 012U000040, and

SpaceStation (part number 8713140U) with installed SpaceCom module (part 
number 8713160U), software versions prior to Version 012U000040.


Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow URL redirection to 
untrusted web sites.


B. Braun Medical Inc. is a US-based company and is part of a global B. Braun 
group of companies.

The affected product, SpaceCom module, is a data communication interface that
is used with a SpaceStation docking station for multiple intravenous infusion
pumps. According to B. Braun Medical, SpaceCom modules are deployed across the

product is only used in the United States.




The web server of the affected product accepts untrusted input which could 
allow attackers to redirect the request to an unintended URL contained within
untrusted input.

ICS-CERT in collaboration with B. Braun Medical recommends that users take 
defensive measures to minimize the risk of exploitation of this vulnerability.
Specifically, users should:

Minimize network exposure for all medical devices and/or systems, and 
ensure that they are not accessible from the Internet.

Locate all medical devices 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 also provides a section for security recommended practices on the 
ICS-CERT web page at 
http://ics-cert.us-cert.gov/content/recommended-practices. 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 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.
