Upgrade Instructions

Security

  • Vulnerability Patch
    • Summary:
      • Extra confidential information could be made accessible only for accounts that have already been compromised by other means.
    • Requirements:
      1. An unauthorized user would have to have already obtained the correct username and password
      2. An unauthorized user would have to have knowledge of login requirements.
    • Scope of Impact:
      • User would have to already have gained access to an authorized account on the Password Server.
      • The entries along with any further activities would display as usual in Password Server's auditing and history features.
    • Status:
      • This vulnerability has been fixed in this release.
      • Companies will be given 3 months to deploy this patch, before more specific information regarding the vulnerability is revealed.
      • Update:
        • One type of two-factor authentication would be too lenient in validating responses that are similar but not an exact match. Exploiting this would require the login account password to already be known and for the second factor to be similar to the correct response.
          Risks would be further mitigated by a standard user lockout policy which locks after multiple failed login attempts, as repeated attempts would be required for unauthorized persons to gain access within the timed period.
          This issue was fixed in version 7.6.4 and later releases, and no further action is required from administrators after updating.
