Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to impact the availability of the target device or to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
### VULNERABILITY OVERVIEW
IMPROPER INPUT VALIDATION CWE-20
An unauthorized remote attacker may be able to establish a Telnet session with a target device by sending malformed CMP-specific Telnet messages.
Incorrect processing of these messages may cause the device to reload or to allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
CVE-2017-3881 has been assigned to this vulnerability.
A CVSS v3 base score of 9.8 has been assigned; the CVSS vector string is (AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)
Critical Infrastructure Sector(s): Critical Manufacturing, Energy, Water and Wastewater Systems
Countries/Areas Deployed: Worldwide
Company Headquarters Location: Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Rockwell Automation has provided interim compensating controls for Allen-Bradley Stratix and ArmorStratix switches to help reduce the risk of exploitation of the vulnerability identified in the Cisco Cluster Management Protocol (CMP) processing code used in the Cisco IOS and Cisco IOS XE software. Allen-Bradley Stratix and ArmorStratix products contain the affected versions of the Cisco IOS and IOS XE software.
Rockwell Automation encourages users to evaluate the compensating controls provided below and apply the applicable controls.
Disable the Telnet protocol as an allowed protocol for incoming connections on affected devices to diminish the network-based vector of attack. For information on how to disable Telnet via Command Line Interface, please see Knowledgebase Article ID 1040270, which is available at the following location (with a valid account):
If a user is unable or unwilling to disable Telnet, then implementing infrastructure access control lists (iACLs) can reduce the attack service. For information on how to implement iACLs, please see Knowledgebase Article ID 1040270.
Cisco has created two Snort rules (SIDs), 41909 and 41910, to detect exploits associated with this vulnerability.
