Weakness
Files or Directories Accessible to External Parties (CWE-552)
Summary

In multiple Codesys products in multiple versions, after successful authentication as a user, specially crafted network communication requests can utilize the CmpApp component to download files with any file extensions to the controller. In contrast to the regular file download via CmpFileTransfer, no filtering of certain file types is performed here. As a result, the integrity of the CODESYS control runtime system may be compromised by the files loaded onto the controller.

Impact

The CODESYS Control runtime system enables embedded or PC-based devices to be a programmable industrial controller. Such products contain communication servers for the CODESYS protocol to enable communication with clients like the CODESYS Development System. For details of the vulnerabilities in the server implementations of CmpApp, CmpAppBP, CmpAppForce see vulnerability descriptions.

Solution

Mitigation

To exploit these vulnerabilities, a successful login to the affected product is required. The online user management therefore protects from exploiting these security vulnerabilities.

CODESYS GmbH strongly recommends using the online user management. This not only prevents an attacker from sending malicious requests or downloading virulent code, but also suppresses starting, stopping, debugging or other actions on a known working application that could potentially disrupt a machine or system. As of version 3.5.17.0, the online user management is enforced by default.

Remediation

Update the following products to version 3.5.19.20.

  • CODESYS Control RTE (SL)
  • CODESYS Control RTE (for Beckhoff CX) SL
  • CODESYS Control Win (SL)
  • CODESYS Control Runtime System Toolkit
  • CODESYS Safety SIL2 Runtime Toolkit
  • CODESYS Safety SIL2 PSP
  • CODESYS HMI (SL)
  • CODESYS Development System V3

Update the following products to version to 4.10.0.0. This version is scheduled for October 2023.

  • CODESYS Control for BeagleBone SL
  • CODESYS Control for emPC-A/iMX6 SL
  • CODESYS Control for IOT2000 SL
  • CODESYS Control for Linux SL
  • CODESYS Control for PFC100 SL
  • CODESYS Control for PFC200 SL
  • CODESYS Control for PLCnext SL
  • CODESYS Control for Raspberry Pi SL
  • CODESYS Control for WAGO Touch Panels 600 SL

The CODESYS Development System and the products available as CODESYS add-ons can be downloaded and installed directly with the CODESYS Installer or be downloaded from the CODESYS Store.
Alternatively, as well as for all other products, you will find further information on obtaining the software update in the CODESYS Update area.
