CA Technologies, A Broadcom Company, is alerting customers to three vulnerabilities in CA Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM). Multiple vulnerabilities exist that can allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or commands, read from or write to systems, or conduct denial of service attacks. CA published solutions to address these vulnerabilities and recommends that all affected customers implement these solutions.
The first vulnerability, CVE-2020-8010, occurs due to improper ACL handling. A remote attacker can execute commands, read from, or write to the target system.
The second vulnerability, CVE-2020-8011, occurs due to a null pointer dereference. A remote attacker can crash the Controller service.
The third vulnerability, CVE-2020-8012, occurs due to a buffer overflow vulnerability in the Controller service. A remote attacker can execute arbitrary code.
All supported robot platforms (i.e. Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX and HPUX)
UIM product versions 9.20 and below are affected. The applicable component is robot (also known as controller).
The robot versions below 7.97HF8, 9.20HF9 and 9.20SHF9 are affected.
How to determine if the installation is affected
Check for the controller version in IM or AC. If the version is lower than 7.97HF8 for UIM 9.0.2, and 9.20HF9 or 9.20SHF9 for UIM 9.2.0, then it is affected.
CA Technologies published the following solutions to address the vulnerabilities:
robot_update patches 7.97HF8 (or above), 9.20HF9 (or above), and 9.20SHF9 (or above)
Note: UIM 8.5.1 users must upgrade robot to 7.97HF8.
