sol15605: XML Entity Injection vulnerabilities CVE-2014-6032 and CVE-2014-6033 

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: 09/17/2014

Description

XML Entity Injection vulnerabilities have been found in the BIG-IP 
Configuration utility and the Enterprise Manager Configuration utility. The 
vulnerabilities are available to authenticated users only.

Impact

Exploitation of these vulnerabilities may allow a malicious authenticated user 
to retrieve arbitrary files or cause of a denial-of-service (DoS) condition.

Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 477278 (BIG-IP) and IDs 477590 and 
477591 (Enterprise Manager) to these vulnerabilities.

To determine if your release is known to be vulnerable, the components or 
features that are affected by the vulnerability, and for information about 
releases or hotfixes that address the vulnerability, refer to the following 
table:

Product 	Versions known to be vulnerable 	Versions known to be not vulnerable 	Vulnerable component or feature

Recommended Action

If the previous table lists a version in the Versions known to be not vulnerable 
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to the listed version.
If the table does not list any version in the column, then no upgrade candidate 
currently exists.

To mitigate these vulnerabilities for BIG-IP and Enterprise Manager systems, 
you can restrict access to the Configuration utility to only trusted networks, 
and limit login access to trusted users.
