Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 2 vulnerabilities.

1) Use of a broken or risky cryptographic algorithm

EUVDB-ID: #VU23960

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 3.2 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-9495

CWE-ID: CWE-327 - Use of a Broken or Risky Cryptographic Algorithm

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to gain access to sensitive information on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to the implementations of EAP-PWD are vulnerable to side-channel attacks as a result of cache access patterns. A remote attacker with ability to install and execute applications can crack weak passwords when memory access patterns are visible in a shared cache.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

FortiAP-W2: 6.2.0

FortiAP-S: 6.2.0

FortiOS: 6.2.0 - 6.2.1

2) Information disclosure

EUVDB-ID: #VU23959

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 6.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-9494

CWE-ID: CWE-200 - Information Exposure

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to gain access to potentially sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to the implementations of SAE are vulnerable to side channel attacks as a result of observable timing differences and cache access patterns. A remote attacker can gain leaked information from a side channel attack that can be used for full password recovery.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
