(DHS) does not provide any warranties of any kind regarding any information

    CVSS v3 6.8
    ATTENTION: Public exploits are available.
    Vendor: Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD)
    Equipment: Certain BD Pyxis Products
    Vulnerability: Reusing a Nonce


Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could allow data traffic
manipulation, resulting in partial disclosure of encrypted communication
or injection of data.



The following versions of BD Pyxis products, a medication and supply
management system, are affected:

    BD Pyxis Anesthesia ES,
    BD Pyxis Anesthesia System 4000,
    BD Pyxis Anesthesia System 3500,
    BD Pyxis MedStation 4000 T2,
    BD Pyxis MedStation ES,
    BD Pyxis SupplyStation,
    BD Pyxis Supply Roller,
    BD Pyxis ParAssist System,
    BD Pyxis PARx,
    BD Pyxis CIISafe - Workstation,
    BD Pyxis StockStation System, and
    BD Pyxis Parx handheld



An industry-wide vulnerability exists in the WPA and WPA2 protocol
affected by the Key Reinstallation Attacks known as KRACK. The four-way
hand shake traffic in the Wi-Fi Protected Access WPA and WPA2 protocol can
be manipulated to allow nonce reuse resulting in key reinstallation. This
could allow an attacker to execute a "man-in-the-middle" attack,
enabling the attacker within radio range to replay, decrypt, or spoof frames.

The following CVEs have been assigned to this group of vulnerabilities:

CVE-2017-13077: Reinstallation of the pairwise key during the four-way

CVE-2017-13078: Reinstallation of the group key during the four-way

CVE-2017-13079: Reinstallation of the Integrity Group Temporal Key (IGTK)
during the four-way handshake.

CVE-2017-13080: Reinstallation of the group key during the group key

CVE-2017-13081: Reinstallation of the IGTK during the group key handshake.

CVE-2017-13082: Reinstallation of the Pairwise Transient Key (PTK) Temporal
Key (TK) during the fast BSS transmission (FT) handshake.

CVE-2017-13086: Reinstallation of the Tunneled Direct-Link Setup (TDLS)
Peer Key (TPK) during the TDLS handshake.

CVE-2017-13087: Reinstallation of the Group Temporal Key (GTK) when
processing a Wireless Network Management (WNM) Sleep Mode Response frame.

CVE-2017-13088: Reinstallation of the IGTK when processing a WNM Sleep
Mode Response frame.

Mathy Vanhoef of imec-DistriNet, KU Leuven discovered the KRACK
vulnerabilities. BD reported to NCCIC that the KRACK vulnerabilities may
possibly affect these products.


BD has implemented third-party vendor patches through BD's routine
patch deployment process that resolves these vulnerabilities for most
devices. Some devices require coordination with BD. BD is in the process
of contacting users to schedule and deploy patches. There is currently
no reported verified instance of the KRACK vulnerability being exploited
maliciously against BD devices.

Additionally, BD recommends the following compensating controls in order
to reduce risk associated with this vulnerability:

    Ensure the latest recommended updates for Wi-Fi access points have
    been implemented in Wi-Fi enabled networks
    Ensure appropriate physical controls are in place to prevent attackers
    from being within physical range of an affected Wi-Fi access point
    and client
    Ensure data has been backed up and stored according to individual
    processes and disaster recovery procedures

BD has published a product security bulletin to notify users about this
issue and to provide additional mitigation counsel.  It can be found at
the following location on their web page:

NCCIC reminds organizations to perform proper impact analysis and risk
assessment prior to deploying defensive measures.

NCCIC also provides a section for control systems security recommended
practices on the ICS-CERT web page. Several recommended practices are
available for reading and download, including Improving Industrial Control
Systems Cybersecurity with Defense-in-Depth Strategies.

Additional mitigation guidance and recommended practices are
publicly available in the ICS-CERT Technical Information Paper,
ICS-TIP-12-146-01B--Targeted Cyber Intrusion Detection and Mitigation
Strategies, that is available for download from the ICS-CERT website.

Organizations observing any suspected malicious activity should follow
their established internal procedures and report their findings to NCCIC
for tracking and correlation against other incidents.

These vulnerabilities have been publicly disclosed. These vulnerabilities are
exploitable from an adjacent network. High skill level is needed to exploit.
