Security Bulletin: SONAS Update Includes Fixes for Multiple Vendor Security Vulnerabilities
SONAS includes multiple software components for which the vendors have provided fixes for security vulnerabilities in such components.
SONAS has integrated updated versions of the software components for which the vendors have provided fixes for security vulnerabilities.
Please see vendor documentation for CVSS scores and CVSS vector.
- Affected releases: SONAS 1.1 through 188.8.131.52.
- Releases/systems/configurations NOT affected: SONAS 184.108.40.206 and above.
Vendor Fix(es): The issue was fixed beginning with version SONAS 220.127.116.11. SONAS customers running an earlier SONAS version (e.g. SONAS 18.104.22.168) must upgrade to SONAS 22.214.171.124 or a later version.
Mitigation(s): SONAS is not exposed to CVEs related to Firefox and Xulrunner and to CVE-2011-3026 during normal operation. Service procedures which use the Firefox web browser may activate the vulnerable code. Service personnel must not browse web pages on the internet to avoid the processing of web pages with malicious content.
The Tomcat related vulnerabilities are exposed to the SONAS management and service IP addresses only, but not to the public IP addresses which are used for NAS data access. It is recommended that the management and service IP addresses will be attached to a management network only.
CVE-2012-4859 is not directly exploitable on SONAS, because SONAS does not provide a capability to logon as native Unix or Linux user.
CVE-2012-5954 impacts only SONAS systems, which are configured with TSM HSM.
