CVE-2018-3639
CVE-2018-3640

Summary

  o On May 21, 2018, researchers disclosed two vulnerabilities that take
    advantage of the implementation of speculative execution of instructions on
    many modern microprocessor architectures to perform side-channel
    information disclosure attacks. These vulnerabilities could allow an
    unprivileged, local attacker, in specific circumstances, to read privileged
    memory belonging to other processes.

    The first vulnerability, CVE-2018-3639, is known as Spectre Variant 4 or
    SpectreNG. The second vulnerability, CVE-2018-3640, is known as Spectre
    Variant 3a. Both of these attacks are variants of the attacks disclosed in
    January 2018 and leverage cache-timing attacks to infer any disclosed data.

    To exploit either of these vulnerabilities, an attacker must be able to run
    crafted or script code on an affected device. Although the underlying CPU
    and operating system combination in a product or service may be affected by
    these vulnerabilities, the majority of Cisco products are closed systems
    that do not allow customers to run custom code and are, therefore, not
    vulnerable. There is no vector to exploit them. Cisco products are
    considered potentially vulnerable only if they allow customers to execute
    custom code side-by-side with Cisco code on the same microprocessor.

    A Cisco product that may be deployed as a virtual machine or a container,
    even while not directly affected by any of these vulnerabilities, could be
    targeted by such attacks if the hosting environment is vulnerable. Cisco
    recommends that customers harden their virtual environments, tightly
    control user access, and ensure that all security updates are installed.
    Customers who are deploying products as a virtual device in multi-tenant
    hosting environments should ensure that the underlying hardware, as well as
    operating system or hypervisor, is patched against the vulnerabilities in
    question.

    Although Cisco cloud services are not directly affected by these
    vulnerabilities, the infrastructure on which they run may be impacted.
    Refer to the "Affected Products" section of this advisory for information
    about the impact of these vulnerabilities on Cisco cloud services. 

    Cisco will release software updates that address these vulnerabilities.
    There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities.

Affected Products

  o Any product or service not listed in the "Vulnerable Products" section of
    this advisory is to be considered not vulnerable. The criteria for
    considering whether a product is vulnerable are explained in the "Summary"
    section of this advisory.

Details

  o Modern CPU Speculative Store Bypass Information Disclosure Vulnerability

    A vulnerability due to the design of most modern CPUs could allow a local
    attacker to access sensitive information on a targeted system.

    The vulnerability is due to improper implementation of the speculative
    execution of instructions by the affected software. This vulnerability can
    be triggered by causing the CPU to attempt to perform a speculative memory
    read before currently queued memory writes are completed. An attacker could
    exploit this vulnerability by executing arbitrary code and performing a
    side-channel attack on the cache of the targeted system. A successful
    exploit could allow the attacker to read sensitive memory information.

    This vulnerability has been assigned the following CVE ID: CVE-2018-3639

    Modern CPU Rogue System Register Read Information Disclosure Vulnerability

    A vulnerability due to the design of most modern CPUs could allow a local
    attacker to access sensitive information on a targeted system.

    The vulnerability is due to improper implementation of the speculative
    execution of instructions by the affected software. This vulnerability can
    by triggered by causing an affected platform to perform speculative reads
    of system registers. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by
    executing arbitrary code and performing a side-channel attack on the cache
    of the targeted system. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to
    read sensitive memory information.

    This vulnerability has been assigned the following CVE ID: CVE-2018-3640

Workarounds

  o There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities.

Fixed Software

    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.

Exploitation and Public Announcements
