Dell OpenManage Network Manager 6.2.0.51 SP3 Privilege Escalation

Dell OpenManage Network Manager 6.2.0.51 SP3 Privilege Escalation
Posted Nov 6, 2018
Authored by Matthew Bergin | Site korelogic.com

Dell OpenManage Network Manager exposes a MySQL listener that can be accessed with default credentials. This MySQL service is running as the root user, so an attacker can exploit this configuration to, e.g., deploy a backdoor and escalate privileges into the root account.

Title: Dell OpenManage Network Manager Multiple Vulnerabilities
Advisory ID: KL-001-2018-009

1. Vulnerability Details

Affected Vendor: Dell
Affected Product: OpenManage Network Manager
Affected Version: 6.2.0.51 SP3
Platform: Embedded Linux
CWE Classification: CWE-285: Improper Authorization,
CWE-284: Improper Access Control
Impact: Privilege Escalation
Attack vector: MySQL, HTTP
CVE ID: CVE-2018-15767, CVE-2018-15768

2. Vulnerability Description

Dell OpenManage Network Manager exposes a MySQL listener that
can be accessed with default credentials (CVE-2018-15768). This
MySQL service is running as the root user, so an attacker can
exploit this configuration to, e.g., deploy a backdoor and
escalate privileges into the root account (CVE-2018-15767).


3. Technical Description

The appliance binds on 3306/mysql using the 0.0.0.0 IP
address. The default IPTables policy is ACCEPT and the
rule table is empty. Using any of three default accounts,
a malicious user can exploit native MySQL functionality to
place a JSP shell into the directory of a web server on the
file system and subsequently make calls into it.


4. Mitigation and Remediation Recommendation

The vendor informed KoreLogic that all default passwords can
be changed and are documented in the OpenManage Network Manager
Installation Guide. Dell recommends all customers change these
default passwords upon installation.

The vendor has addressed these vulnerabilities in version
6.5.3. Release notes and download instructions can be found at:
