SaltStack FrameWork Vulnerabilities in Cisco Products
  • Advisory
  • June 19, 2020

The vulnerabilities allow an attacker who can connect to the "request server" port to bypass all authentication and authorization controls and publish arbitrary control messages, read and write files anywhere on the "master" server filesystem and steal the secret key used to authenticate to the master as root. The impact is full remote command execution as root on both the master and all minions that connect to it. The vulnerabilities are of two different classes. One being authentication bypass where functionality was unintentionally exposed to unauthenticated network clients, the other being directory traversal where untrusted input (i.e. parameters in network requests) was not sanitized correctly allowing unconstrained access to the entire filesystem of the master server.
