1.3 CVE-2015-5464

Local Execution Code

The Gemalto SafeNet Luna HSM allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended key-export restrictions by leveraging (1) crypto-user or (2) crypto-officer access to an HSM partition.


CWE-284 : Improper Access Control
The product does not restrict or incorrectly restricts access to a resource from an unauthorized actor. The terms "access control" and "authorization" are often used interchangeably, although many people have distinct definitions. The CWE usage of "access control" is intended as a general term for the various mechanisms that restrict which users can access which resources, and "authorization" is more narrowly defined. It is unlikely that there will be community consensus on the use of these terms. Very carefully manage the setting, management, and handling of privileges. Explicitly manage trust zones in the software. Access-control setting in web-based document collaboration tool is not properly implemented by the code, which prevents listing hidden directories but does not prevent direct requests to files in those directories. Python-based HTTP library did not scope cookies to a particular domain such that "supercookies" could be sent to any domain on redirect Chain: Cloud computing virtualization platform does not require authentication for upload of a tar format file (CWE-306), then uses .. path traversal sequences (CWE-23) in the file to access unexpected files, as exploited in the wild per CISA KEV. IT management product does not perform authentication for some REST API requests, as exploited in the wild per CISA KEV. Default setting in workflow management product allows all API requests without authentication, as exploited in the wild per CISA KEV. Bulletin board applies restrictions on number of images during post creation, but does not enforce this on editing.

T1027.009 On Windows 10, enable Attack Surface Reduction (ASR) rules to prevent execution of potentially obfuscated scripts.
T1037 Ensure proper permissions are set for Registry hives to prevent users from modifying keys for logon scripts that may lead to persistence.
T1080 Protect shared folders by minimizing users who have write access.
T1505.005 Consider using Group Policy to configure and block modifications to Terminal Services parameters in the Registry.
T1542.003 Ensure proper permissions are in place to help prevent adversary access to privileged accounts necessary to install a bootkit.
T1543 Limit privileges of user accounts and groups so that only authorized administrators can interact with system-level process changes and service configurations.
T1543.001 Set group policies to restrict file permissions to the <code>~/launchagents</code> folder.
T1543.003 Limit privileges of user accounts and groups so that only authorized administrators can interact with service changes and service configurations.
T1543.004 Limit privileges of user accounts and remediate Privilege Escalation vectors so only authorized administrators can create new Launch Daemons.
T1546.004 Making these files immutable and only changeable by certain administrators will limit the ability for adversaries to easily create user level persistence.
T1546.008 To use this technique remotely, an adversary must use it in conjunction with RDP. Ensure that Network Level Authentication is enabled to force the remote desktop session to authenticate before the session is created and the login screen displayed. It is enabled by default on Windows Vista and later.
T1547.006 Use MDM to disable user's ability to install or approve kernel extensions, and ensure all approved kernel extensions are in alignment with policies specified in <code>com.apple.syspolicy.kernel-extension-policy</code>.
T1553.004 HTTP Public Key Pinning (HPKP) is one method to mitigate potential Adversary-in-the-Middle situations where and adversary uses a mis-issued or fraudulent certificate to intercept encrypted communications by enforcing use of an expected certificate.
T1556.006 Ensure that proper policies are implemented to dictate the secure enrollment and deactivation of MFA for user accounts.
T1562.001 Ensure proper user permissions are in place to prevent adversaries from disabling or interfering with security services.
T1562.002 Ensure proper user permissions are in place to prevent adversaries from disabling or interfering with logging.
T1562.004 Ensure proper user permissions are in place to prevent adversaries from disabling or modifying firewall settings.
T1562.007 Ensure least privilege principles are applied to Identity and Access Management (IAM) security policies.
T1562.008 Configure default account policy to enable logging. Manage policies to ensure only necessary users have permissions to make changes to logging policies.
T1562.009 Ensure that endpoint defenses run in safe mode.
T1574.011 Ensure proper permissions are set for Registry hives to prevent users from modifying keys for system components that may lead to privilege escalation.
