K39428424: SQL injection vulnerability CVE-2017-0304

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: Dec 20, 2017
Updated Date: Dec 21, 2017

Security Advisory Description

The SQL injection vulnerability in the Configuration utility is related to the
BIG-IP AFM system. (CVE-2017-0304 )

Impact

An attacker can exploit this vulnerability regardless of the BIG-IP AFM
provisioning configuration; however, exploiting this vulnerability does not
impact traffic processing or the live firewall rules used in the Traffic
Management Microkernel (TMM). The impacts are as follows:

  * If the BIG-IP AFM system is or has been provisioned, a copy of the
    configured firewall rules may be tampered with and impact the BIG-IP AFM
    Configuration utility until the rules are resynchronized.
  * If the BIG-IP AFM system is not or has never been provisioned, there is no
    impact.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 639729 (BIG-IP) to this vulnerability.

^1The CVSSv3 score link takes you to a resource outside of AskF5, and it is
possible that the document may be removed without our knowledge.

^2 The specified products contain the affected code. However, F5 identifies the
vulnerability status as Not vulnerable because the attacker cannot exploit the
code in default, standard, or recommended configurations.

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 Fixes introduced in 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.

Note: For details about how Security Advisory articles are versioned, and what
versions are listed in the table, refer to K51812227: Understanding Security
Advisory versioning.

Mitigation

To mitigate this vulnerability, you should allow access to the BIG-IP AFM
system 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.
