Security Advisory

1) Path traversal

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 2.9 [CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-0539

CWE-ID: CWE-22 - Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to perform directory traversal attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to input validation error when processing directory traversal sequences in subsystem for Intel(R) DAL software for Intel(R) CSME. A local user can send a specially crafted HTTP request and cause a denial of service condition on the system.

Note: This vulnerability affects the following versions of Intel CSME and TXE:

CSME:

  • 11.0 through 11.8.76
  • 11.10 through 11.12.76
  • 11.20 through 11.22.76
  • 12.0 through 12.0.63
  • 13.0.31 and 14.0.32
TXE:

  • 3.0 through 3.1.70
  • 4.0 through 4.0.20


Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Converged Security and Management Engine (CSME): before 11.8.77, 11.12.77, 11.22.77, 12.0.64, 13.0.32, 14.0.32

Intel Trusted Execution Engine Firmware: before 3.1.75, 4.0.25

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

No. This vulnerability can be exploited locally. The attacker should have authentication credentials and successfully authenticate on the system.

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

No. We are not aware of malware exploiting this vulnerability.

2) Integer overflow

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 4.8 [CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-0545

CWE-ID: CWE-190 - Integer Overflow or Wraparound

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

The vulnerability exists due to integer overflow in subsystem. A remote attacker can pass specially crafted data to the application, trigger integer overflow and cause a denial of service condition on the target system.

Note: This vulnerability affects the following versions of Intel CSME, TXE and SPS:

CSME:

  • 11.0 through 11.8.76
  • 11.20 through 11.22.76
  • 11.10 through 11.12.76
TXE:

  • 3.0 through 3.1.70
  • 4.0 through 4.0.20
SPS:

  • SPS_E5_04.00.00.000.0 through SPS_E5_04.01.04.379.0
  • SPS_SoC-X_04.00.00.000.0 through SPS_SoC-X_04.00.04.127.0
  • SPS_SoC-A_04.00.00.000.0 through SPS_SoC-A_04.00.04.210.0
  • SPS_E3_04.00.00.000.0 through SPS_E3_04.01.04.103.0
  • SPS_E3_04.08.00.000.0 through SPS_E3_04.08.04.065.0

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Converged Security and Management Engine (CSME): before 11.8.77, 11.12.77, 11.22.77

Intel Trusted Execution Engine Firmware: before 3.1.75, 4.0.25

Intel Server Platform Services Firmware: before SPS_E3_04.01.04.109.0, SPS_E3_04.08.04.070.0, SPS_E5_04.01.04.380.0, SPS_SoC-A_04.00.04.211.0, SPS_SoC-X_04.00.04.128.0

3) Information disclosure

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 4.6 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-0536

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 improper input validation in the DAL subsystem. A remote attacker can gain unauthorized access to sensitive information on the system.

Note: This vulnerability affects the following versions of Intel CSME and TXE:

CSME:
  • 11.0 through 11.8.76
  • 11.10 through 11.11.76
