  • CVSS v3 6.4
  • ATTENTION: High attack complexity
  • Vendor: Yokogawa
  • Equipment: Consolidation Alarm Management Software for Human Interface Station (CAMS for HIS)
  • Vulnerability: Violation of Secure Design Principles


If a computer using CAMS for HIS software is compromised, it can be used to compromise any number of other computers using CAMS for HIS software with the potential to crash any affected software.



The following products that use CAMS for HIS, are affected:

  • CENTUM CS 3000 (including CENTUM CS 3000 Entry Class): Versions R3.08.10 through R3.09.00. These vulnerabilities affect this product if LHS4800 (CAMS for HIS) is installed.
  • CENTUM VP (including CENTUM VP Entry Class): Versions R4.01.00 through R4.03.00 (these product versions are affected only if CAMS function is used), Versions R5.01.00 through R5.04.20, and R6.01.00 through R6.09.00 (these product versions are affected regardless of whether CAMS function is used or not).
  • Exaopc: Versions R3.72.00 through R3.80.00 (these product versions are affected if NTPF100-S6 "For CENTUM VP Support CAMS for HIS" is installed).
  • B/M9000CS: Versions R5.04.01 - R5.05.01
  • B/M9000 VP: Versions R6.01.01 - R8.03.01



If an attacker successfully compromises a computer using CAMS for HIS software, they can use credentials from the compromised machine to access data from another machine using CAMS for HIS software. This can lead to a disabling of CAMS for HIS software functions on any affected machines.

CVE-2022-30707 has been assigned to this vulnerability. A CVSS v3 base score of 6.4 has been calculated; the CVSS vector string is (AV:A/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:H).
