Vulnerability Description
This release addresses two Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in the
ePO administrator User Interface, and updates three libraries that ePO uses.
Both issues require administrator access.

The third-party libraries updated in this release, along with details on CVEs
that impacted ePO, are below.

 1. Java has been updated to the July 2021 update.
     a. CVE-2021-2161 from the April 2021 update rated as Medium (CVSS 5.9)
        Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory
     b. CVE-2021-2432 from the July 2021 update rated as Low (CVSS 3.7)
        Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory
 2. OpenSSL has been updated to 1.0.2za from 1.0.2t.
     a. CVE-2021-3712
     b. CVE-2021-23840
    For details of the issues that OpenSSL addressed, see the OpenSSL
    vulnerabilities page .
 3. Tomcat has been updated to 9.0.52 from 9.0.41.
     a. CVE-2021-30639
     b. CVE-2021-33037
    For details of the issues that Tomcat addressed, see the Tomcat
    vulnerabilities page .

McAfee Enterprise code vulnerabilities:

 1. CVE-2021-31834
    Stored Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability in McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator
    (ePO) prior to 5.10 Update 11 allows ePO administrators to inject arbitrary
    web script or HTML via multiple parameters where the administrator's
    entries were not correctly sanitized.
    NVD CVE-2021-31834
    MITRE CVE-2021-31834
 2. CVE-2021-31835
    Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability in McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO)
    prior to 5.10 Update 11 allows ePO administrators to inject arbitrary web
    script or HTML via a specific parameter where the administrator's entries
    were not correctly sanitized.

    To exploit this the attacker would either:
       Need to know an existing registered command in the ePO system that they
        can pass parameters to, triggering the Cross-Site Scripting
        vulnerability.
       Add a new registered command to the ePO system that does not sanitize
        parameters. Adding a new command to the ePO system requires
        administrator privileges and they must be logged onto the local ePO
        system, not through the User Interface. This could then be exploited by
        another ePO user. Execution of these commands is not granted by default
        to non-administrator ePO users.
    NVD CVE-2021-31835
    MITRE CVE-2021-31835

Remediation
To remediate this issue, customers using ePO 5.10 should update to ePO 5.10
Update 11.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How do I know if my product is vulnerable or not
For ePO/server products:
Use the following instructions for server-based products:

  o Check the version and build of ePO that is installed. For instructions,
    see: KB52634 - How to determine what hotfix is installed for ePO .
  o Create a query in ePO for the product version of the product installed
    within your organization.

What is CVSS
Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is the result of the National
Infrastructure Advisory Council's effort to standardize a system of assessing
the criticality of a vulnerability. This system offers an unbiased criticality
score between 0 and 10 that customers can use to judge how critical a
vulnerability is and plan accordingly. For more information, visit the CVSS
website .

When calculating CVSS scores, McAfee Enterprise has adopted a philosophy that
fosters consistency and repeatability. Our guiding principle for CVSS scoring
is to score the exploit under consideration by itself. We consider only the
immediate and direct impact of the exploit under consideration. We do not
factor into a score any potential follow-on exploits that might be made
possible by the successful exploitation of the issue being scored.

Where can I find a list of all Security Bulletins
All Security Bulletins are published on our external PSIRT website . To see
Security Bulletins for McAfee Enterprise products on this website, click
Enterprise Security Bulletins . Security Bulletins are retired (removed) once a
product is both End of Sale and End of Support (End of Life).

How do I report a product vulnerability to McAfee Enterprise
If you have information about a security issue or vulnerability with a McAfee
Enterprise product, go to the PSIRT website , click Report a Security
Vulnerability , and follow the instructions.

How does McAfee Enterprise respond to this and any other reported security
flaws
Our key priority is the security of our customers. If a vulnerability is found
within any McAfee Enterprise software or services, we work closely with the
relevant security software development team to ensure the rapid and effective
development of a fix and communication plan.

McAfee Enterprise only publishes Security Bulletins if they include something
actionable such as a workaround, mitigation, version update, or hotfix.
Otherwise, we would simply be informing the hacker community that our products
are a target, putting our customers at greater risk. For products that are
updated automatically, a non-actionable Security Bulletin might be published to
acknowledge the discoverer.
