Cisco Response

Microsoft announced six security bulletins that address 19 vulnerabilities as part of the monthly security bulletin release on November 13, 2012. A summary of these bulletins is on the Microsoft website at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms12-nov. This document provides identification and mitigation techniques that administrators can deploy on Cisco network devices.

The vulnerabilities that have a client software attack vector, can be exploited locally on the vulnerable device, require user interaction, or can be exploited using web-based attacks (these include but are not limited to cross-site scripting, phishing, and web-based e-mail threats) or e-mail attachments are in the following list:

The following vulnerability has a network mitigation. Cisco devices provide several countermeasures for the vulnerabilities that have a network attack vector, which will be discussed in detail later in this document.

Information about affected and unaffected products is available in the respective Microsoft advisories and the Cisco IntelliShield alerts that are referenced in Cisco Event Response: Microsoft Security Bulletin Release for November 2012.

In addition, multiple Cisco products use Microsoft operating systems as their base operating system. Cisco products that may be affected by the vulnerabilities described in the referenced Microsoft advisories are detailed in the "Associated Products" table in the "Product Sets" section.

Vulnerability Characteristics

MS12-074, Vulnerabilities in .NET Framework Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2745030): These vulnerabilities have been assigned Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) identifiers CVE-2012-1895, CVE-2012-1896, CVE-2012-2519, CVE-2012-4776, and CVE-2012-4777.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability associated with CVE-2012-1895 may allow an attacker to gain complete control of the affected system. The attack vector for exploitation is through a crafted Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) browser application. XAML applications run over HTTP packets that typically use TCP port 80 but may also use TCP ports 3128, 8000, 8010, 8080, 8888, and 24326. A second attack vector for the exploitation of CVE-2012-1895, for which there is no network mitigation available, is through .NET framework applications.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability associated with CVE-2012-1896 may allow an attacker to obtain confidential information on the target system. The attack vector for exploitation is through a crafted XAML browser application over HTTP packets that typically use TCP port 80 but may also use TCP ports 3128, 8000, 8010, 8080, 8888, and 24326.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability associated with CVE-2012-2519 could cause remote code execution. The attack vector is through a crafted DLL file loaded by a .NET application.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability associated with CVE-2012-4776 could cause remote code execution. The attack vector for this vulnerability is malicious web proxy settings.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability associated with CVE-2012-4777 may allow an attacker to gain complete control of the affected system. The attack vector for exploitation is through a crafted XAML browser application over HTTP packets that typically use TCP port 80 but may also use TCP ports 3128, 8000, 8010, 8080, 8888, and 24326. 

Mitigation Technique Overview

The vulnerabilities that have a client software attack vector, can be exploited locally on the vulnerable device, require user interaction, or can be exploited using web-based attacks (these include but are not limited to cross-site scripting, phishing, and web-based e-mail threats) or e-mail attachments are in the following list:

These vulnerabilities are mitigated most successfully at the endpoint through software updates, user education, desktop administration best practices, and endpoint protection software such as Host Intrusion Prevention Systems (HIPS) or antivirus products.

The following vulnerability has a network mitigation. Cisco devices provide several countermeasures for this vulnerability. This section of the document provides an overview of these techniques.

Effective exploit prevention can be provided by the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliance, Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Module (ASASM), and the Firewall Services Module (FWSM) for Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches and Cisco 7600 Series Routers using application layer protocol inspection.

This protection mechanism filters and drops packets that are attempting to exploit the vulnerabilities that have a network attack vector.

Effective exploit prevention can also be provided by the Cisco ACE Application Control Engine Appliance and Module using application protocol inspection.

Cisco ASA, Cisco ASASM, Cisco FWSM firewalls, and Cisco ACE Application Control Engine Appliance and Module can provide visibility through syslog messages and counter values displayed in the output from show commands.

Effective use of Cisco Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) event actions provides visibility into and protection against attacks that attempt to exploit these vulnerabilities as discussed later in this document.

The Cisco Security Manager can also provide visibility through incidents, queries, and event reporting.

Risk Management

Organizations are advised to follow their standard risk evaluation and mitigation processes to determine the potential impact of these vulnerabilities. Triage refers to sorting projects and prioritizing efforts that are most likely to be successful. Cisco has provided documents that can help organizations develop a risk-based triage capability for their information security teams. Risk Triage for Security Vulnerability Announcements and Risk Triage and Prototyping can help organizations develop repeatable security evaluation and response processes.

Device-Specific Mitigation and Identification

Caution: The effectiveness of any mitigation technique depends on specific customer situations such as product mix, network topology, traffic behavior, and organizational mission. As with any configuration change, evaluate the impact of this configuration prior to applying the change.

Specific information about mitigation and identification is available for these devices:

Cisco ASA, Cisco ASASM, and Cisco FWSM Firewalls

Mitigation: Application Layer Protocol Inspection

Application layer protocol inspection is available beginning in software release 7.2(1) for the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliance, software release 8.5 for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Module, and in software release 4.0(1) for the Cisco Firewall Services Module. This advanced security feature performs deep packet inspection of traffic that transits the firewall. Administrators may construct an inspection policy for applications that require special handling through the configuration of inspection class maps and inspection policy maps, which are applied by means of a global or interface service policy.

Additional information about application layer protocol inspection is in the Configuring Application Layer Protocol Inspection section of the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Configuration Guide using the CLI, 8.2 and the Configuring Application Inspection section of the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Module CLI Configuration Guide, 8.5.

Caution: Application layer protocol inspection will decrease firewall performance. Administrators are advised to test performance impact in a lab environment before this feature is deployed in production environments.

HTTP Application Inspection
For MS12-074, by using the HTTP inspection engine on the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances, Cisco 6500 Series ASA Services Modules, and the Cisco Firewall Services Module, administrators can configure regular expressions (regexes) for pattern matching and construct inspection class maps and inspection policy maps. These methods can help protect against specific vulnerabilities, such as the ones described in this document, and other threats that may be associated with HTTP traffic. The following HTTP application inspection configuration uses the Cisco Modular Policy Framework (MPF) to create a policy for inspection of traffic on TCP ports 80, 3128, 8000, 8010, 8080, 8888, and 24326, which are the default ports for the Cisco IPS #WEBPORTS variable. The HTTP application inspection policy will drop connections where the HTTP response body contains any of the regexes that are configured to match the ActiveX control that is associated with these vulnerabilities.

Caution: The configured regexes can match text strings at any location in the body of an HTML response. Care should be taken to ensure that legitimate business applications that use matching text strings without calling the ActiveX control are not affected. Additional information about regex syntax is in Creating a Regular Expression.

Additional information about ActiveX exploits and mitigations that leverage Cisco firewall technologies is available in the Preventing ActiveX Exploits with Cisco Firewall Application Layer Protocol Inspection Cisco Security white paper.

Identification: Application Layer Protocol Inspection

Firewall syslog message ASA-4-415007 will be generated when an HTTP message body matches a user-defined regular expression. The syslog message will identify the corresponding HTTP class and HTTP policy and indicate the action applied to the HTTP connection. Additional information about this syslog message is in Cisco ASA 5500 Series System Log Message, 8.2 - 415007.

Information about configuring syslog for the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliance is in Monitoring - Configuring Logging. Information about configuring syslog for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Module is in Configuring Logging. Information about configuring syslog on the FWSM for Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches and Cisco 7600 Series Routers is in Monitoring the Firewall Services Module.

In the following example, the show logging | grep regex command extracts syslog messages from the logging buffer on the firewall. These messages provide additional information about denied packets that could indicate attempts to exploit these vulnerabilities. Administrators can use different regular expressions with the grep keyword to search for specific data in the logged messages.

Additional information about regular expression syntax is in Creating a Regular Expression.

HTTP Application Inspection

firewall#show logging | grep 415007
Nov 12 2012 14:35:55: %ASA-5-415007: HTTP - matched regex class MS12-074_regex_class in policy-map MS_Nov_2012_policy,
Body matched - Dropping connection from inside:192.168.60.86/2133 to outside:192.0.2.63/80 Nov 12 2012 14:36:03: %ASA-5-415007: HTTP - matched regex class MS12-074_regex_class in policy-map MS_Nov_2012_policy, Body matched - Dropping connection from inside:192.168.60.87/2129 to outside:192.0.2.63/80

With HTTP application inspection enabled, the show service-policy inspect protocol command will identify the number of HTTP packets that are inspected and dropped by this feature. The following example shows output for show service-policy inspect http:

firewall# show service-policy inspect http
Global policy: 
  Service-policy: global_policy
    Class-map: inspection_default
    Class-map: Webports_Class
      Inspect: http MS_Nov_2012_policy, packet 5025, drop 20, reset-drop 0
       protocol violations
          packet 0        
               match response body regex class MS12-074_regex_class
         drop-connection log, packet 20

In the preceding example, 5025 HTTP packets have been inspected and 20 HTTP packets have been dropped.

Cisco ACE

Mitigation: Application Protocol Inspection

Application protocol inspection is available for the Cisco ACE Application Control Engine Appliance and Module. This advanced security feature performs deep packet inspection of traffic that transits the Cisco ACE device. Administrators can construct an inspection policy for applications that require special handling through the configuration of inspection class maps and inspection policy maps, which are applied via a global or interface service policy.

Additional information about application protocol inspection is in the Configuring Application Protocol Inspection section of the Cisco ACE 4700 Series Appliance Security Configuration Guide.

HTTP Deep Packet Inspection

To conduct HTTP deep packet inspection for MS12-074, administrators can configure regular expressions (regexes) for pattern matching and construct inspection class maps and inspection policy maps. These methods can help protect against specific vulnerabilities, such as the ones described in this document, and other threats that may be associated with HTTP traffic. The following HTTP application protocol inspection configuration inspects traffic on TCP ports 80, 3128, 8000, 8010, 8080, 8888, and 24326, which are the default ports for the Cisco IPS #WEBPORTS variable. The HTTP application protocol inspection policy will drop connections where the HTTP content contains any of the regexes that are configured to match the web pages that are associated with these vulnerabilities.

Caution: The configured regexes can match text strings at any location in the content of an HTML packet. Care should be taken to ensure that legitimate business applications that use matching text strings are not affected.

HTTP Deep Packet Inspection

Cisco ACE Application Control Engine syslog message ACE-5-415007 will be generated when an HTTP message body matches a user-defined regular expression. The syslog message will identify the corresponding HTTP class and HTTP policy and indicate the action applied to the HTTP connection. Additional information about this syslog message is in Cisco ACE 4700 Series Appliance System Message Guide - System Message 415007.

ACE/Admin# show logging | include 415007
Nov 12 2012 15:26:43: %ACE-5-415007: HTTP - matched MS12-074_class in policy-map L4_MS_Nov_2012, Body matched - Resetting connection from vlan206:192.168.60.63/1776 to vlan130:192.0.2.94/80 Connection 0x3a

When HTTP deep packet inspection is enabled, the show service-policy policyname detail command will identify the number of HTTP connections that are inspected and dropped by this feature. The following example shows output for show service-policy L4_MS_Nov_2012 detail:

ACE/Admin# show service-policy L4_MS_Nov_2012 detail
