For more information about these vulnerabilities, see the Details section of this advisory. Cisco has released software updates that address these vulnerabilities. There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities. This advisory is available at the following link: https://sec.cloudapps.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityAdvisory/cisco-sa-ind-fZyVjJtG Affected Products o Vulnerable Products These vulnerabilities affect Cisco IND. For information about which Cisco software releases are vulnerable, see the Fixed Software section of this advisory. Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable Only products listed in the Vulnerable Products section of this advisory are known to be affected by these vulnerabilities. Details o The vulnerabilities are not dependent on one another. Exploitation of one of the vulnerabilities is not required to exploit the other vulnerability. In addition, a software release that is affected by one of the vulnerabilities may not be affected by the other vulnerability. Details about the vulnerabilities are as follows: CVE-2023-20037: Cisco Industrial Network Director Stored Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability A vulnerability in Cisco IND could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to conduct stored XSS attacks. This vulnerability is due to improper validation of content that is submitted to the affected application. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending malicious HTTPS requests to an affected system. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary script code in the context of the affected interface or access sensitive, browser-based information. Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability. Bug ID(s): CSCwc29356 CVE ID: CVE-2023-20037 Security Impact Rating (SIR): Medium CVSS Base Score: 5.4 CVSS Vector: CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N CVE-2023-20038: Cisco Industrial Network Director Static Private Key Vulnerability A vulnerability in the monitoring application of Cisco IND could allow an authenticated, local attacker to access a static private key that is used to encrypt both local data and credentials for accessing remote systems. This vulnerability exists because a static key value that is stored in the application can be used to encrypt application data and remote credentials. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by gaining local access to the server on which Cisco IND is installed. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to decrypt local data or access remote systems monitored by Cisco IND. Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability. Bug ID(s): CSCwc29341 CVE ID: CVE-2023-20038 Security Impact Rating (SIR): High CVSS Base Score: 8.8 CVSS Vector: CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H Workarounds o There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities. Fixed Software o Cisco has released free software updates that address the vulnerabilities described in this advisory. Customers with service contracts that entitle them to regular software updates should obtain security fixes through their usual update channels. Customers may only install and expect support for software versions and feature sets for which they have purchased a license. By installing, downloading, accessing, or otherwise using such software upgrades, customers agree to follow the terms of the Cisco software license: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/end-user-license-agreement.html Additionally, customers may only download software for which they have a valid license, procured from Cisco directly, or through a Cisco authorized reseller or partner. In most cases this will be a maintenance upgrade to software that was previously purchased. Free security software updates do not entitle customers to a new software license, additional software feature sets, or major revision upgrades. The Cisco Support and Downloads page on Cisco.com provides information about licensing and downloads. This page can also display customer device support coverage for customers who use the My Devices tool. When considering software upgrades , customers are advised to regularly consult the advisories for Cisco products, which are available from the Cisco Security Advisories 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. Customers Without Service Contracts Customers who purchase directly from Cisco but do not hold a Cisco service contract and customers who make purchases through third-party vendors but are unsuccessful in obtaining fixed software through their point of sale should obtain upgrades by contacting the Cisco TAC: https://www.cisco.com/c /en/us/support/web/tsd-cisco-worldwide-contacts.html Customers should have the product serial number available and be prepared to provide the URL of this advisory as evidence of entitlement to a free upgrade. Fixed Releases In the following table(s), the left column lists Cisco software releases. The right column indicates whether a release is affected by the vulnerabilities that are described in this advisory and the first release that includes the fix for these vulnerabilities.
