EMC Identifier: ESA-2013-055

CVE Identifier:  CVE-2013-3274, CVE-2013-3275

Severity Rating: See below for individual scores

Affected products:  

All EMC Avamar Server and Avamar Virtual Edition versions prior 7.0 running on Avamar Data Store Gen3, Gen4 or Avamar Data Store Gen4s hardware.


EMC Avamar Server 7.0 contains fixes for multiple security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malicious users.


The following vulnerabilities were addressed in this release:
•	Improper authorization checks on Java RMI method calls (CVE-2013-3274)
Authenticated users could carry out potentially unauthorized functions within vulnerable system.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 8.5 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C)

•	Multiple cross frame scripting vulnerabilities (CVE-2013-3275)
Avamar web interface does not properly validate the input parameters allowing frames to be injected. This may allow the malicious user to monitor legitimate web usersÂ’ activity and compromise any sensitive input that user may enter. 
CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.8 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

•	This release also contains critical security updates for Oracle Java and Apache Tomcat. See release notes for more details.


The fix for these issues is to upgrade the current grid/single node/VM system from its existing Avamar version to Avamar Version v7.0 or newer in order to get the fixes, as well as the updates and new features that are available in the Avamar 7.0 version. To schedule an Avamar server upgrade, or if you have any questions or concerns about the above resolution, please contact EMC Technical Support at (See http://support.emc.com )

EMC recommends that customers upgrade to Avamar 7.0 at the earliest opportunity.
