CVSS v3 9.0

ATTENTION: Remotely exploitable/low skill level to exploit.


Equipment: mGuard Device Manager

Vulnerabilities: Improper Access Control vulnerabilities for Oracle Java SE


The following versions of mGuard Device Manager, a device management software
for mGuard devices, are affected:

mGuard Device Manager 1.8.0 and older.


Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow unauthorized 
remote access, modification of data, and may allow remote and local users to 
gain elevated privileges.


PHOENIX CONTACT recommends that all users of the affected product on Windows 
should update to at least Version The update can be performed by 
simply executing the installer for Version on a Windows system where 
the product is installed in Version 1.8.0. The installer is available for

For more information please refer to the document "How to upgrade mGuard 
device manager" downloaded with the installer.

PHOENIX CONTACT recommends that all users of the affected product on Linux 
should update Java to the latest version. When using the packet source 
delivered by PHOENIX CONTACT on Ubuntu, this is simply done by using the 
software updater of the operating system.

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 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 these vulnerabilities.
