A vulnerability in the Wibu CodeMeter Runtime, which is part of the installation packages of
several Festo products, was found. This could lead to remote code execution and escalation of
privileges giving full admin access on the host system. 

Update A, 2023-12-05

  • removed "MES4 (v3)", "MES4 (<=v2)" and Energy-PC from affected products as they do not install the affected WIBU Codemeter release.

Incomplete user documentation of undocumented, authenticated test mode and further remote accessible functions. The supported features may be covered only partly by the corresponding user documentation.

Festo developed the products according to the respective state of the art. As a result, the protocols used no longer fully meet today's security requirements. The products are designed and developed for use in sealed-off (industrial) networks. If the network is not adequately sealed off, unauthorized access to the product can cause damage or malfunctions, particularly Denial of Service (DoS) or loss of integrity.

A vulnerability was reported in WIBU-SYSTEMS CodeMeter Runtime.
WIBU-SYSTEMS CodeMeter Runtime is part of the installation packages of several Festo products.
FluidDraw < 6.2c and CIROS <= 7.0.6 contain a vulnerable version of WIBU-SYSTEMS CodeMeter Runtime.

Incomplete Festo product documentation of remote accessible functions and their required IP ports. Depending on the product a description of the supported features can be found in the product documentation to some extent.

Update A, 2022-12-13

Added affected device "Bus module CPX-E-PN, 4080497"

The products are shipped with an unsafe configuration of the integrated CODESYS Runtime
environment. In this case no default password is set to the CODESYS PLC and therefore access
without authentication is possible.

With a successful established connection to the CODESYS Runtime the PLC-Browser commands are
available. Thus granting the possibilities to e.g. read and modify the configuration file(s), start/stop
the application and reboot the device.

UPDATE A (19.10.2022): Added Control block-Set CPX-CEC-C1 and Control block-SET
CPX-CMXX to affected products.

Unauthenticated access to critical webpage functions (e.g. reboot) may cause a denial of service of the device.
