K76052144:BIG-IP / BIG-IQ / Enterprise Manager / F5 iWorkflow Configuration utility vulnerability CVE-2019-6663

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: 15 Nov, 2019

Security Advisory Description

The BIG-IP / BIG-IQ / Enterprise Manager / F5 iWorkflow Configuration utility
is vulnerable to Anti DNS Pinning (DNS Rebinding) attack. (CVE-2019-6663)


BIG-IP / BIG-IQ / Enterprise Manager / F5 iWorkflow

An Anti DNS Pinning (DNS Rebinding) attack allows an attacker to manipulate the
correspondence between an IP address and a fully qualified domain name (FQDN)
with the purpose of initializing active content within the trust relationship
with the vulnerable site. The vulnerability is that the Configuration utility
does not sufficiently verify the Host field in the HTTP request. The
Configuration utility fails to return an error if the received request includes
an arbitrary address in the Host field, and instead continues to process the
request. An attacker initiating a DNS rebinding attack requires control of the
DNS that is configured in a client that accesses the Configuration utility of
the vulnerable system.

Traffix SDC

There is no impact; this F5 product is not affected by this vulnerability.

^2F5 will not develop a fix for vulnerable products that do not already have a
fixed version listed in this article, and will not update this table with
subsequent vulnerable releases in the associated branches. For more
information, refer to K4602: Overview of the F5 security vulnerability response

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Fixes introduced in column. If the table lists only an older version
than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version,
then no upgrade candidate currently exists.


As the Configuration utility is accessible only over Transport Layer Security
(TLS), the use of a valid, signed TLS server certificate for the Configuration
utility will show a server certificate validation error to the browser. If the
affected system does not use a valid server certificate, the user will have to
accept the validation bypass in the browser. If the Configuration utility is
accessed by way of an IP address instead of through the FQDN, then this attack
is not relevant.
