|e!COCKPIT engineering software installation bundles
Multiple vulnerabilties were reported in WIBU-SYSTEMS Codemeter. WIBU-SYSTEMS Codemeter is installed by default during e!COCKPIT installation. All currently existing e!COCKPIT installation bundles contain vulnerable versions of WIBU-SYSTEMS Codemeter.
Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities exist in CodeMeter (All versions prior to 7.10) where the packet parser mechanism does not verify length fields. An attacker could send specially crafted packets to exploit these vulnerabilities.
Protocol encryption can be easily broken for CodeMeter (All versions prior to 6.90 are affected, including Version 6.90 or newer only if CodeMeter Runtime is running as server) and the server accepts external connections, which may allow an attacker to remotely communicate with the CodeMeter API.
An attacker could send a specially crafted packet that could have CodeMeter (All versions prior to 7.10) send back packets containing data from the heap.
This vulnerability allows an attacker to use the internal WebSockets API for CodeMeter (All versions prior to 7.00 are affected, including Version 7.0 or newer with the affected WebSockets API still enabled. This is especially relevant for systems or devices where a web browser is used to access a web server) via a specifically crafted Java Script payload, which may allow alteration or creation of license files for when combined with CVE-2020-14515.
CodeMeter (All versions prior to 6.81) and the software using it may crash while processing a specifically crafted license file due to unverified length fields.
CodeMeter (All versions prior to 6.90 when using CmActLicense update files with CmActLicense Firm Code) has an issue in the license-file signature checking mechanism, which allows attackers to build arbitrary license files, including forging a valid license file as if it were a valid license file of an existing vendor. Only CmActLicense update files with CmActLicense Firm Code are affected.
WAGO controllers and IO-Devices are not affected by WIBU-SYSTEMS Codemeter vulnerabilities.
However, due to compatibility reasons to the 3S Codesys Store, the e!COCKPIT engineering software is bundled with a WIBU-SYSTEMS Codemeter installation.
We strongly encourage e!COCKPIT users to update WIBU-SYSTEMS Codemeter by installing the latest available stand-alone WIBU-SYSTEMS Codemeter Version.
During the WIBU-SYSTEMS Codemeter installation process, refer to the recommended setup settings according to the WIBU-SYSTEMS advisories, a brief summary is provided in the chapter mitigation. Please check for updates and details that may not be included in this document.
WAGO will provide an updated e!COCKPIT setup routine with the latest WIBU-SYSTEMS Codemeter version approximately in Q4/2020.
For further impact information and risk mitigation, please refer to the official WIBU-SYSTEMS Advisory Website at https://www.wibu.com/support/security-advisories.html.
