Hi @ll

the current version of Dell's Data Protection | Access (DDPA) software for
Windows (Build 2.2.00003.008 from 2012-06-14, released August 2012) contains
and installs several outdated, superfluous and vulnerable Windows system
components as well as outdated and vulnerable 3rd party components and drivers.

<http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/uk/en/ukdhs1/DriverDetails?driverId=KPCWG>

>From the readme.txt:

| Dell Data Protection | Access (DDP|A) is an integrated end point security
| management suite, providing for seamless data security and authentication.
| It allows you to authenticate using a fingerprint, smartcard, contactless
| smartcard or password. Pre-Windows can be configured to unlock self-encrypting
| drives upon authentication.


The outdated, superfluous and vulnerable components (incomplete):

#1. "Microsoft MSXML Parser.msi" version 6.0 from 2005-09-09

All versions of Windows supported by DDP|A include a newer version
of MSXML 6.0, the latest update/security fix cf.
<http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms12-043>


#2. "Microsoft Root Certificate Update October 2010\rootsupd.exe"

The current Microsoft root certificate update is from April 2012,
cf. <http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931125>


#3. "Microsoft Visual Studio Runtimes\vcredist_x86.exe"
version 9.0.30729.17 from 2008-08-08

For the current Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package
cf. <http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms11-025>


#4. "Microsoft CCID Smartcard Reader for XP\usbccid.sys"
version 5.2.3790.2444 from 2005-05-17

The installer package for DDP|A but includes the hotfix
"WindowsXP-KB967048-v2-x86-ENU.exe" with the current version of
this driver: 5.2.3790.4476, 2009-03-17


#5. "AuthenTec AES2810 Fingerprint Reader\AT8MinFoose.msi"
version 8.4.4.39 from 2012-02-02

Cf. <http://blog.crackpassword.com/2012/08/upek-fingerprint-readers-a-huge-security-hole/>


#6. "UPEK TouchChip Fingerprint Reader\UPEK_Touchchip.msi"
version 5.9.4.6685 from 2010-09-15

Cf. <http://blog.crackpassword.com/2012/08/upek-fingerprint-readers-a-huge-security-hole/>

This driver package contains parts of OpenSSL (no version specified),
it installs a textfile "OpenSSL license" from 2006-06-14!
So: add OpenSSL to the list of vulnerable components too.


#7. "UPEK TouchChip Fingerprint Reader PBA Support\spba.msi"
version 5.9.4.6901 from 2010-??-??

This package contains a vulnerable MSVCRT+ 2005 runtime (version
8.0.50727.762)

Cf. <http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms11-025>

This driver package contains parts of OpenSSL (no version specified),
it installs a textfile "OpenSSL license" from 2006-06-14!
So: add OpenSSL to the list of vulnerable components too.


#8. "Preboot Manager.msi" version 03.02.00.119 from 2011-12-06
by Wave Systems Corp.

This package contains a vulnerable MSXML 4.0 SP2 (version 4.20.9818.0
from 2003-04-18).
Cf. <http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms12-043>

This package contains a VTAPI.DLL (version 5.6.0.3239 from 2006-11-13)
from UPEK Inc. (see #6 and #7 above) which contains parts of OpenSSL.
So: yet another component with vulnerable OpenSSL code.

JFTR: no textfile with the "OpenSSL license" included here.


#9. "NTRU CryptoSystems TCG Software Stack\NTRU-CTSS-v1.2.1.37-eu.msi"
version 1.2.1.37 from 2011-10-08
by NTRU CryptoSystems Inc.

This package contains a vulnerable MSVCRT++ 2010 (version 10.0.30319.1
from 2010-03-18), cf.
<http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms11-025>


... and more (I stopped counting)!


Dell Inc.: Don't you have any QA? Can't afford one?
UPEK Inc.: Don't you have any QA? Can't afford one?
Wave Corp.: Don't you have any QA? Can't afford one?
NTRU Inc.: Don't you have any QA? Can't afford one?

What about just a little bit of serious software engineering and due
diligence in your development, build and production processes?

It's a stupid idea to build security software from vulnerable components!
