4. TECHNICAL DETAILS
4.1 AFFECTED PRODUCTS
--------- Begin Update A Part 2 of 4 ---------
The following versions of Dahua video products, are affected:
- Dahua ASI7XXX: Versions prior to v1.000.0000009.0.R.220620
- Dahua IPC-HDBW2XXX: Versions prior to v2.820.0000000.48.R.220614
- Dahua IPC-HX2XXX: Versions Prior to v2.820.0000000.48.R.220614
--------- End Update A Part 2 of 4 ---------
4.2 VULNERABILITY OVERVIEW
--------- Begin Update A Part 3 of 4 ---------
Dahua ASI7XXX allows users to upload a promotional picture or video displayed when device is in standby, which may allow an attacker to upload unvalidated files other than a picture or a video, such as an executable file; this could lead to a denial-of-service.
Dahua ASI7XXX is vulnerable to Pass the Hash of a captured authentication hash, which could allow an attacker to sniff the authentication process and access the device without needing a password.
Dahua ASI7XXX is vulnerable when an unknown username is entered; the web server returns a valid username in an error message. This could allow an attacker to gain valid username values to use in authentication attacks.
Dahua ASI7XXX is vulnerable to an authentication replay in the ONVIF web interaction. An attacker capable of sniffing the network traffic could replay the authentication data and access the device as the captured authenticated user.

CISA recommends users take defensive measures to minimize the risk of exploitation of this vulnerability these vulnerabilities. Specifically, users should:
- Minimize network exposure for all control system devices and/or systems, and ensure they are not accessible from the Internet.
- Locate control system networks and remote devices behind firewalls and isolate them from business networks.
- When remote access is required, use secure methods, such as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), recognizing VPNs may have vulnerabilities and should be updated to the most current version available. Also recognize VPN is only as secure as its connected devices.
CISA reminds organizations to perform proper impact analysis and risk assessment prior to deploying defensive measures.
CISA also provides a section for control systems security recommended practices on the ICS webpage at cisa.gov/ics.
