Philips Fixing ISP Vulnerabilities

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 @ 06:02 PM gHale

Philips is creating software to mitigate vulnerabilities in its IntelliSpace Portal (ISP), an advanced visualization and image analysis system, according to a report with ICS-CERT.

Additionally, Philips is issuing mitigating controls for some vulnerabilities. Some vulnerabilities are remotely exploitable. Exploits that target some vulnerabilities are publicly available.

Philips reports these vulnerabilities affect the following versions of the ISP:
• IntelliSpace Portal, all 8.0.x versions
• IntelliSpace Portal, all 7.0.x versions

Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access to sensitive information, perform man-in-the-middle attacks, create denial of service conditions, or execute arbitrary code.

Philips is a global company that maintains offices in many countries around the world, including countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and North America.

The Philips ISP processes clinical images from different modalities and enables advanced visualization of the images. ISP systems see action across the healthcare and public health sectors. Philips estimates these products see use on a global basis.

In one vulnerability, the ISP has multiple input validation vulnerabilities that could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause the application to crash.

CVE-2018-5474, CVE-2017-0143, CVE-2017-0144, CVE-2017-0145, CVE-2017-0146, CVE-2017-0148, CVE-2017-0272, CVE-2017-0277, CVE-2017-0278, CVE-2017-0279, CVE-2017-0269, CVE-2017-0273, and CVE-2017-0280 are the case numbers assigned to these vulnerabilities, which have CVSS v3 base scores ranging from 5.9 to 8.1

In addition, the ISP has multiple information exposure vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access to sensitive information.

CVE-2017-0147, CVE-2017-0267, CVE-2017-0268, CVE-2017-0270, CVE-2017-0271, CVE-2017-0274, CVE-2017-0275, and CVE-2017-0276 are the case numbers assigned to these vulnerabilities, which have a CVSS v3 base score of 5.9.

Also, the ISP has multiple permission, privilege and access control vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access and in some cases escalate their level of privilege or execute arbitrary code.

CVE-2018-5472, CVE-2018-5468, CVE-2017-0199, and CVE-2005-1794 are the case numbers assigned to this vulnerability, which has CVSS v3 base scores for theses vulnerabilities ranging from 6.4 to 7.8.

An unquoted search path or element vulnerability has been identified, which may allow an authorized local user to execute arbitrary code and escalate their level of privileges.

CVE-2018-5470 is the case number assigned to this vulnerability, which has a CVSS v3 base score of 7.8.

In addition, the ISP has a vulnerability where code debugging methods are enabled, which could allow an attacker to remotely execute arbitrary code during runtime.

CVE-2018-5454 is the case number assigned to this vulnerability, which has a CVSS v3 base score of 5.3.

Also, the ISP has multiple cryptographic vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access to resources and information.

CVE-2018-5458, CVE-2018-5462, CVE-2018-5464, CVE-2018-5466, CVE-2011-3389, CVE-2004-2761, CVE-2014-3566, and CVE-2016-2183 are the case numbers assigned to these vulnerabilities, which have a CVSS v3 base scores range from 3.1 to 6.5.

Public exploits exist for some of these vulnerabilities; however, none are known to specifically target Philips ISP. An attacker with a low skill would be able to exploit these vulnerabilities.

Philips will release an updated version of the ISP in the coming months that will address these vulnerabilities. Additionally, Philips’ evaluation of Operating System security patches is ongoing, and after appropriate testing, the patches and mitigating controls are posted on Philips’ InCenter. ISP users are recommended to obtain available mitigating controls by accessing their InCenter account.

Users with questions regarding their specific ISP installations are advised by Philips to contact their local Philips service support team or their regional service support.

Philips’ contact information is available at this location.
