4.2 VULNERABILITY OVERVIEW

4.2.1    SESSION FIXATION CWE-384

Affected SICAM P850 and P855 devices versions prior to 3.10 accept user defined session cookies and do not renew the session cookie after login or logout. This could allow an attacker to take over another user’s session after login.

--------- Begin Update A part 1 of 2 ---------

CVE-2022-40226 has been assigned to this vulnerability. A CVSS v3 base score of 7.5 has been calculated; the CVSS vector string is (AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H).

--------- End Update A part 1 of 2 ---------

4.2.2    IMPROPER NEUTRALIZATION OF PARAMETER/ARGUMENT DELIMITERS CWE-141

--------- Begin Update A part 2 of 2 ---------

Affected SICAM P850 and P855 devices versions prior to 3.10 do not properly validate the parameter of a specific GET request. This could allow an unauthenticated user to set the device to a denial-of-service state or to control the program counter and execute arbitrary code on the device.

--------- End Update A part 2 of 2 ---------

CVE-2022-41665 has been assigned to this vulnerability. A CVSS v3 base score of 9.8 has been calculated; the CVSS vector string is (AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H).

5. MITIGATIONS

Siemens has released updates for the affected products and recommends updating to the latest versions: 

Siemens has identified the following specific workarounds and mitigations users can apply to reduce risk:

  • Avoid accessing links from untrusted sources while logged in to SICAM P850 or SICAM P855 devices

Siemens recommends operators check for appropriate resilient protection measures; the risk of cyber incidents impacting the grid's reliability can be minimized by virtue of the grid design.

Siemens strongly recommends applying the provided security updates using the corresponding tooling and documented procedures made available with the product. If supported by the product, an automated application of security updates across multiple product instances may be used. Siemens strongly recommends users to validate any security update before application; Siemens recommends the update process be supervised by trained staff in the target environment.

As a general security measure, Siemens strongly recommends protecting network access with appropriate mechanisms, such as firewalls, network segmentation, or use of virtual private networks (VPNs). It is advised to configure the environment according to Siemens’ operational guidelines to run the devices in a protected IT environment.

For additional resources, users should review Siemens’ security guidelines.
