Version Summary:Cisco Desktop Collaboration Experience DX650 Software contains a vulnerability that could allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges. Updates are available.
 
 
Description
A vulnerability in an underlying Android Application Programming Interface (API) utilized by the Cisco Desktop Collaboration Experience DX600 series endpoint could allow an authenticated, local attacker to inject code into the system.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of specific values prior to their use to allocate a buffer. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by overflowing a buffer. An exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.

Cisco has confirmed this vulnerability in a security notice and released software updates.
 
Warning Indicators
At the time this alert was first published, Cisco Desktop Collaboration Experience DX650 Software versions 10.0(1) and prior were vulnerable. Later versions of Cisco Desktop Collaboration Experience DX650 Software may also be affected.
 
IntelliShield Analysis
To successfully exploit the vulnerability, the attacker would need to authenticate and have local access to the targeted system, which could limit the likelihood of an exploit.
 
Vendor Announcements
Cisco has released a security notice at the following link: CVE-2013-3399

Customers should refer to Cisco bug IDs CSCuf93957, CSCug22352, and CSCug22462 for the most complete list of affected product versions.
 
Impact
A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject and execute arbitrary code on a targeted system with elevated privileges. Successful exploitation could result in a complete system compromise.
 
Technical Information
The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input on devices running the affected software.

A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability by submitting malicious content to a targeted device. Processing the malicious content could cause a buffer overflow condition in which an attacker could leverage to execute arbitrary code on a targeted device. Successful exploitation could allow the attacker to conduct further attacks which could lead to a complete system compromise.
 
Safeguards
Administrators are advised to apply the appropriate updates.

Administrators are advised to allow only trusted users to access local systems.
