Attackers with network access to the Apache web server can download and therefore read mGuard configuration profiles (“ATV profiles”). Such configuration profiles may contain sensitive information, e.g., private keys associated with IPsec VPN connections.
This vulnerability is exploitable only if the ConfigPull functionality is used and config files are stored unencrypted. As a best practice and mitigation measure, we recommend storing configuration files encrypted with the device specific public key of the mGuard appliances.
PHOENIX CONTACT strongly recommends upgrading FL MGUARD DM UNLIMITED to version 188.8.131.52 or higher, which fixes this vulnerability.
