ESA-2016-034: EMC Documentum D2 Configuration Object Vulnerability

EMC Identifier: ESA-2016-034

CVE Identifier: CVE-2016-0888

Severity Rating: CVSS v3 Base Score: 8.8(AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

Affected products:  
     Documentum D2 versions prior to 4.6

EMC Documentum D2 4.6 contains a fix for a D2 Configuration Object vulnerability that could potentially be exploited by malicious users to perform unauthorized updates on any D2 configuration object.


Prior to EMC Documentum D2 version 4.6, many D2 Configuration object types were not properly protected with ACLs.  As a result, an authenticated but unprivileged user could then modify or delete such objects. 

The following EMC Documentum D2  release contains resolutions to these vulnerabilities:
     EMC Documentum D2 4.6

EMC recommends that all customers upgrade to D2 4.6 at the earliest opportunity.
