K14845276: OpenSSH vulnerability CVE-2016-6210

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: Dec 23, 2016
Updated Date: Dec 21, 2017

Security Advisory Description

When SSHD tries to authenticate a non-existing user, it will pick up a fake
password structure hard-coded in the SSHD source code. An attacker can measure
timing information to determine if a user exists when verifying a password. (
CVE-2016-6210)

Impact

This vulnerability allows an attacker to disrupt service.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 612128 (BIG-IP), ID 606040 (BIG-IQ and
F5 iWorkflow), and ID 431179 (ARX) to this vulnerability. Additionally, BIG-IP
iHealth may list Heuristic H14845276 on the Diagnostics > Identified > Medium
screen.

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 determine the necessary upgrade path for your BIG-IQ system, you should
understand the BIG-IQ product offering name changes. For more information,
refer to K21232150: Considerations for upgrading BIG-IQ or F5 iWorkflow systems
.

Mitigation

To mitigate this vulnerability for BIG-IP systems, you can limit the allowable
IP address ranges for secure shell (SSH) access. To do so, refer to K5380:
Specifying allowable IP ranges for SSH access.

Impact of action: Before performing this action, ensure that the IP address
used to access the BIG-IP system from SSH is included in the allowable IP
address range. If the IP address is not included in the allowable IP address
range, you will lose access to the BIG-IP system.
