Summary

  o A vulnerability in Cisco WebEx Recording Format (WRF) Player could allow an
    unauthenticated, remote attacker to access sensitive data about the
    application. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain
    information to conduct additional reconnaissance attacks.

    The vulnerability is due to a design flaw in Cisco WRF Player. An attacker
    could exploit this vulnerability by utilizing a maliciously crafted file
    that could bypass checks in the code and enable an attacker to read memory
    from outside the bounds of the mapped file.

    There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

    This advisory is available at the following link:

Affected Products

  o Vulnerable Products

    This vulnerability affects Cisco WebEx Business Suite meeting sites, Cisco
    WebEx Meetings sites, and Cisco WebEx WRF players. For information about
    affected software releases, consult the Cisco bug ID(s) at the top of this
    advisory.

    To determine whether a Cisco WebEx Meetings site is running an affected
    version of the WebEx client build, users can log in to their Cisco WebEx
    Meetings site and go to Support > Downloads. The version of the WebEx
    client build will be displayed on the right side of the page under About
    Meeting Center.

    Alternatively, version information for the Cisco WebEx Meetings client can
    be accessed within the Cisco WebEx Meetings client. Version information for
    the Cisco WebEx Meetings client on Windows and Linux platforms can be
    viewed by choosing Help > About Cisco WebEx Meeting Center. Version
    information for the Cisco WebEx Meetings client on Mac platforms can be
    viewed by choosing Meeting Center > About Cisco WebEx Meeting Center.

    The Cisco WebEx software updates are cumulative in client builds. For
    example, if client build 30.32.16 is fixed, build 30.32.17 will contain
    updated software. Cisco WebEx site administrators have access to secondary
    version nomenclature, for example, T30 SP32 EP 16, which shows that the
    server is running client build 30.32.16.

    Note: Customers who do not receive automatic software updates may be
    running versions of Cisco WebEx that have reached end of software
    maintenance and should contact customer support.

    Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable

    Only products listed in the Vulnerable Products section of this advisory
    are known to be affected by this vulnerability.

Details

  o The Cisco WebEx Business Suite (WBS) meeting services are a hosted
    multimedia conferencing solution that is managed and maintained by Cisco
    WebEx.

    The WRF file format is used to store WebEx meeting recordings that have
    been recorded on a WebEx meeting site.

    The Cisco WebEx WRF Player is an application that is used to play back and
    edit WebEx WRF recording files (files with .wrf extensions).

    The Cisco WebEx WRF Player can be installed automatically when the user
    accesses a recording file that is hosted on a Cisco WebEx Meetings site
    (for stream playback mode). The Cisco WebEx WRF Player can also be
    installed manually after downloading the application from http://
    www.webex.com/play-webex-recording.html for offline playback of recording
    files.

    The Cisco WebEx WRF Player is available for all Cisco WebEx Business Suite
    clients (WBS31 and WBS32) and Cisco WebEx Meetings clients.

    The vulnerability described in this advisory could allow an attacker to
    bypass checks in the code and enable the attacker to read memory from
    outside the bounds of the mapped file.

    To exploit this vulnerability, the player application would need to open a
    malicious WRF file. The vulnerability cannot be triggered by users who are
    attending a WebEx meeting.

Workarounds

  o There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability. However, it is
    possible to remove all Cisco WebEx software completely from a system by
    using the Meeting Services Removal Tool (for Microsoft Windows) or Mac
    WebEx Meeting Application Uninstaller (for Apple Mac OS X), both of which
    are available for download from the Cisco Collaboration Help for Cisco
    Spark, WebEx, and Jabber article at https://collaborationhelp.cisco.com/
    article/en-us/WBX000026396.

    Removal of the Cisco WebEx software from a Linux or UNIX-based system can
    be accomplished by following the steps in the Cisco Collaboration Help for
    Cisco Spark, WebEx, and Jabber article at https://
    collaborationhelp.cisco.com/article/en-us/WBX28548.

Fixed Software

  o For information about fixed software releases, consult the Cisco bug ID(s)
    at the top of this advisory.

    When considering software upgrades, customers are advised to regularly
    consult the advisories for Cisco products, which are available from the
    Cisco Security Advisories and Alerts page, to determine exposure and a
    complete upgrade solution.

    In all cases, customers should ensure that the devices to be upgraded
    contain sufficient memory and confirm that current hardware and software
    configurations will continue to be supported properly by the new release.
    If the information is not clear, customers are advised to contact the Cisco
    Technical Assistance Center (TAC) or their contracted maintenance
    providers.
