Re: RSA Key Manager SQL injection Vulnerability ( CVE-2010-1904 )

Subject: Re: RSA Key Manager SQL injection Vulnerability ( CVE-2010-1904 )

What is the issue?

This message is in response to the original message posted on June 3, 2010 addressing a SQL Injection vulnerability in the RSA Key Manager C Client version 1.5.  The original message referenced CVE-2010-1904.

A vulnerability has been identified in the RSA Key Manager (RKM) C client 1.5 that may expose the product to a SQL Injection attack. An attacker having access to encrypted data may be able to leverage this vulnerability in an attempt to alter the RKM C Client 1.5 cache.

Affected Products:
RKM C Client versions 1.5.x.x, all platforms (Windows, Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, etc).

Unaffected Products:
RKM C Client 2.0.x, all platforms
RKM C Client 2.1.x, all platforms
RKM C Client 2.2.x, all platforms
RKM C Client 2.5.x, all platforms
RKM C Client 2.7, all platforms
All versions of RKM Java Client
RKM PKCS#11 Module for LT0-4
RKM PKCS#11 Module for Oracle TDE
RKM Server, all versions and platforms
RKM Appliance, all versions
Customer using EMC PowerPath with RSA encryption
Customer using Brocade Encryption Switches with RSA encryption

What is the impact?
An attacker can attempt to modify the cache to insert an arbitrary encryption key that may lead to data unavailability (such as decryption failure of data encrypted by that modified key). 

There is no impact on confidentiality of the data as the attacker would need the cache encryption key in order to decrypt the data.

As of the date of this posting, RSA is not aware of any instances where this vulnerability may have been compromised nor are there signs of published exploit code.


RSA, The Security Division of EMC, recommends all customers upgrade to the latest version of RKM C Client and RKM Server/Appliance.
