Security Advisory Description

Directory traversal vulnerability in the configuration utility in F5 BIG-IP
before 12.0.0 and Enterprise Manager 3.0.0 through 3.1.1 allows remote
authenticated users to access arbitrary files in the web root via unspecified
vectors. (CVE-2015-4040)

Impact

An authenticated user is able to traverse the web root to gain access to files
located within the web root only.

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column. If the table lists only an
older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a
non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

To mitigate this vulnerability, you should permit management access to F5
products only over a secure network and restrict command line access for
affected systems to only trusted users. For more information, refer to K13309:
Restricting access to the Configuration utility by source IP address (11.x -
13.x) and K13092: Overview of securing access to the BIG-IP system.

Note: As of February 17, 2015, AskF5 Security Advisory articles include
the Severity value. Security Advisory articles published before this date
do not list a Severity value.

Recommended Action

If the previous table lists a version in the Versions known to be not
vulnerable column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to
the listed version. If the listed version is older than the version you
are currently running, or if the table does not list any version in the
column, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

F5 responds to vulnerabilities in accordance with the Severity values
published in the previous table. The Severity values and other security
vulnerability parameters are defined in SOL4602: Overview of the F5 security
vulnerability response policy.

To mitigate this vulnerability, you should permit management access to F5
products only over a secure network and restrict command line access for
affected systems to trusted users. For more information, refer to SOL13309:
Restricting access to the Configuration utility by source IP address (11.x)
and SOL13092: Overview of securing access to the BIG-IP system.
