CA20190523-01: Security Notice for CA Risk Authentication and CA Strong Authentication

Issued: May 23, 2019

Last Updated: June 6th, 2019

The Support team for CA Technologies, A Broadcom Company, is alerting customers to multiple potential risks with CA Risk Authentication and CA Strong Authentication. Multiple vulnerabilities exist that can allow a remote attacker to gain additional access in certain configurations or possibly gain sensitive information. CA published solutions to address the vulnerabilities and recommends that all affected customers implement these solutions immediately.

The first vulnerability, CVE-2019-7394, occurs due to insufficient verification of custom privileges. A malicious actor, who has access to an account with customized and limited privileges may, in some cases, access resources and act outside of assigned privileges. This exposure does not affect installations where accounts do not have custom privileges.

The second vulnerability, CVE-2019-7393, may enable a malicious actor to conduct UI redress attacks to gain sensitive information in some cases.
