Concerns over a critical authentication bypass vulnerability in certain Fortinet appliances heightened this week with the release of proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit code and a big uptick in vulnerability scans for the flaw.

The bug (CVE-2022-40684) is present in multiple versions of Fortinet's FortiOS, FortiProxy and FortiSwitchManager technologies. It allows an unauthenticated attacker to gain administrative access to affected products via specially crafted HTTPS and HTTP requests, and potentially use that as entry point to the rest of the network.

Bharat Jogi, director of vulnerability threat research at Qualys says researchers at the company have observed mass scans being carried out by various threat actors to identify Internet facing vulnerable systems for compromise.

"They are compromising these systems to create a super_admin user which provides them with complete access and control," Jogi says. "Once this level of access is achieved, they have the ability to delete any trace of their successful exploitation attempt, making it difficult for organizations to track compromised assets in their environment."

If this flaw is successfully exploited, an attacker would have complete access to the organization's internal systems that were previously protected by Fortinet's firewalls, he says. "Having a compromised firewall is like laying out a red carpet for threat actors to stroll right into your organization's environment," Jogi notes.

Added to CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog

The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) earlier this week added the vulnerability to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities catalog. Federal executive branch agencies—which are required to remediate vulnerabilities in the catalog within specific deadlines—have until Nov. 1 to address it. Though the deadline applies only to federal agencies, security experts have previously noted how it is a good idea for all organizations to monitor the vulnerabilities in the catalog and follow CISA's deadline for implementing fixes.

Fortinet privately notified customers of the affected products about the vulnerability last Friday, along with instructions to immediately update to patched versions of the technology the company had just released. It advised companies that could not update for any reason to immediately disable Internet-facing HTTPS administration until they could upgrade to the patched versions. 

"Due to the ability to exploit this issue remotely, Fortinet is strongly recommending all customers with the vulnerable versions to perform an immediate upgrade," Fortinet said in its private notification, a copy of which was posted on Twitter the same day.

Fortinet followed up with a public vulnerability advisory on Monday describing the flaw and warning customers of potential exploit activity. The company said it was aware of instances where attackers had exploited the vulnerability to obtain the configuration file from affected systems and to add a malicious super_admin account called "fortigate-tech-support".

Since then, penetration testing from Horizon3.ai has released proof-of-concept code for exploiting the vulnerability along with a technical deep dive of the flaw. A template for scanning for the vulnerability has also become available on GitHub.

Exacerbating the concerns is the relatively low bar for exploiting the flaw. "This vulnerability is extremely easy for an attacker to exploit. All that is required is access to the management interface on a vulnerable system," Zach Hanley, chief attack engineer at Horizon3.ai, tells Dark Reading

Increase in Scanning Activity for the Flaw

Qualys isn't the only company observing increased vulnerability scanning for the flaw. James Horseman, exploit developer at Horizon3.ai says public data from GreyNoise—which tracks Internet scanning activity hitting security tools—shows the number of unique IPs using the exploit has grown from the single digits a few days ago, to over forty as of Oct. 14.

"We expect the number of unique IPs using this exploit to rapidly increase in the coming days," Horseman says. It is not hard for attackers to find vulnerable systems, he adds: A Shodan search for instance shows more than 100,000 Fortinet systems worldwide. 

"Not all of these will be vulnerable, but a large percentage will be," Horseman says.

Johannes Ullrich, dean of research at the SANS Institute, says he has observed scans associated with an older FortiGate vulnerability (CVE-2018-13379,) hitting SANS' honeypots in the days following disclosure of the new bug. He says there are two theories why that might be happening.

One of them is that an attacker may have tried to catch as many devices as possible that had not yet been patched for the old vulnerability. Given the attention the new vulnerability has gotten it is likely the old vulnerability will get patched as well now, he says.

"Or the attacker was trying to find Fortinet devices to exploit using the new vulnerability once it is available," he theorizes. "The old vulnerability scanner they had sitting on the shelf may still work to identify Fortinet devices."

A Popular Attacker Target

Concerns over vulnerabilities in Fortinet products are not new. The company's technologies—and those of others selling similar appliance—have been frequently targeted by attackers trying to gain an initial foothold on target network. 

Last November. The FBI, CISA and others issued an advisory warning of Iranian advanced persistent threat actors exploiting vulnerabilities in Fortinet and Microsoft products. A similar alert in April 2021 warned of attackers exploiting flaws in FortiOS to break into multiple government, commercial, and technology services.

"These vulnerable devices are often edge devices, so an attacker could potentially use this vulnerability to gain access to an organization's internal networks to launch further attacks," Hanley says.

Fortinet itself has recommended that organizations that are able to, must update to the newly patched versions of FortiOS, FortiProxy and FortiSwitch Manager. For organizations that cannot immediately update, Fortinet has provided guidance on how to disable the HTTP/HTTPS interface or limit IP addresses that can reach the administrate interface of the affected products.

Hanley says organizations sometimes may not be able to patch due to the potential downtime associated with updating a device. "However, an organization should be able to apply [the] workaround to prevent this vulnerability from being exploited on unpatched machines by following Fortinet’s guidance."

Qualys' Jogi adds, "It is also crucial to review any attempts of exploit to identify systems that may have already been compromised. If an organization is unable to patch their systems, then they must disable the system admin interface immediately."

Killexams : Fortinet Admits Many Devices Still Unprotected Against Exploited Vulnerability

Fortinet is concerned that many of its customers’ devices are still unprotected against attacks exploiting the recently disclosed zero-day vulnerability and the company has urged them to take action.

Fortinet was initially aware of a single instance where the vulnerability tracked as CVE-2022-40684 had been exploited. However, now that technical details and proof-of-concept (PoC) exploits are publicly available, the security hole is being increasingly targeted.

“After multiple notifications from Fortinet over the past week, there are still a significant number of devices that require mitigation, and following the publication by an outside party of POC code, there is active exploitation of this vulnerability,” Fortinet said on Friday.

The cybersecurity company has released patches and workarounds for the vulnerability, as well as indicators of compromise (IoCs) that can be used to detect signs of an attack.

The firm said threat actors have been scanning the internet for affected devices, exploiting the vulnerability to obtain configuration, and installing malicious admin accounts.

Mass exploitation of the vulnerability started last week, when cybersecurity firms spotted an increasing number of IP addresses attempting to exploit CVE-2022-40684.

Threat intelligence firm GreyNoise had seen 44 unique IPs by Friday morning and that number has now increased to 185.

Penetration testing company Horizon3.ai has made public a PoC exploit that allows an attacker to add an SSH key to the admin user, enabling the attacker to access the targeted system with administrator privileges. It seems at least some of the attack attempts are relying on this PoC exploit.

The Shadowserver Foundation reported on Friday that it had seen more than 17,000 internet-exposed devices vulnerable to attacks involving CVE-2022-40684, including thousands in the United States and India. Shadowserver has seen exploitation attempts coming from more than 180 IPs.

While Fortinet is concerned that many customers have yet to apply patches or workarounds, researcher Florian Roth noted that many of these organizations don’t even know that their network houses a Fortinet appliance.

CVE-2022-40684 affects Fortinet FortiOS, FortiProxy, and FortiSwitchManager products. The flaw has been described as an authentication bypass issue that can allow a remote attacker to remotely perform unauthorized operations on an appliance’s admin interface using specially crafted requests. Exploitation is not difficult and it can lead to a full device takeover.

Killexams : Fortinet issues emergency patches for FortiOS, FortiProxy and FortiSwitchManager

Fortinet Inc. today issued emergency patches for a number of its products after a severe vulnerability was discovered and exposed last week.

The vulnerability, designated CVE-2022-40684, is described by Fortinet as an authentication bypass. The bypass uses an alternate path or channel vulnerability in FortiOS, FortiProxy and FortiSwitchManager that may allow an unauthenticated attacker to perform operations on the administrative interface via a specifically crafted HTTP or HTPPS request. Fortinet noted that it’s aware of an instance where the vulnerability has been exploited.

Fortinet first let “select customers” know of the vulnerability via email last week. According to Security Week, copies of the email were shared on social media and Fortinet forums in the following days.

Versions of Fortinet software that are exposed to the vulnerability are FortiOS 7.0.0 to 7.06, 7.2.0 and 7.2.1; FortiProxy 7.0.0 to 7.0.6 and 7.2.0; and FortiSwitchManager 7.0.0 and 7.2.0. FortiOS has released patched versions for FortiOS 7.0.7 and 7.2.2 and above, FortiProxy 7.0.7 and 7.2.1 and above and FortiSwitchManager 7.2.1 or above.

Along with installing patches or newer versions of the affected software, Fortinet recommends users validate their systems against the user=”Local_Process_Access” in device logs. For those unable to install a patch, at least immediately, there are other options to address the vulnerability.

The workaround options for FortiOS and FortProxy include disabling the HTTP/HTTPS administrative access or limiting IP addresses that can reach the administrative interface. For FortiSwitchManager, the only option is to disable the HTTP/HTTPS administrative access. With all options, customers can also contact Fortinet customer support for assistance.

Although Fortinet has released patches and workarounds, the risk of the vulnerability being exploited continues to grow. The Horizon3 Attack Team posted on Twitter Inc. that it’s working on a proof-of-concept exploit that it plans to release later this week.

Fortinet did not disclose how many customers may be affected. However, cyberthreat intelligence platform company Cyberthint estimates that there are more than 150,000 Fortinet devices exposed.

Killexams : New auth bypass bug targets FortiGate firewalls and FortiProxy web proxies No result found, try new keyword!A Fortinet vulnerability in FortiGate firewalls and FortiProxy web proxies could allow a threat actor to perform unauthorized actions on vulnerable devices. Thu, 13 Oct 2022 23:19:00 -0500 https://www.itworldcanada.com/post/new-auth-bypass-bug-targets-fortigate-firewalls-and-fortiproxy-web-proxies Killexams : Fortinet authentication bypass flaw exploited in the wild; security experts call patching critical

The Fortinet authentication bypass vulnerability that was discovered last week and has been confirmed in the wild was the subject of at least two exact research blogs and on Tuesday was entered into the CISA Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) Catalog.

Fortinet released an update on Monday that detailed how security teams can check their logs for indicators of compromise, a subject that was also covered in a blog yesterday by Horizon3.ai.

Jerrod Piker, competitive intelligence analyst at Deep Instinct, explained that this exploit  – CVE-2022-40684 – functions as a vulnerability in the HTTP/S admin access to most Fortinet solutions. Piker said any organizations that deployed Fortinet devices running FortiOS, FortiProxy, or FortiSwitchManager should immediately respond to this alert, especially since CVE-2022-40684 has been exploited in the wild.

Piker added that the vulnerability lets an unauthenticated user perform administrative actions through the HTTP/S administration portal. These actions may include, but are not limited to: admin SSH key modification to allow access by remote attacker; creation of new local users; modification of configuration to reroute traffic; and access to full system configurations.

Mike Parkin, senior technical engineer at Vulcan Cyber, said vulnerabilities in security products are always problematic, especially when it’s on an edge or gateway device.

“While Fortinet has released an update and offers workarounds that could mitigate the risk, because there’s evidence this has already been exploited in the wild, anyone using the affected products should update sooner, rather than later, and at least restrict access to the devices per industry best practices,” Parkin said.

David Farquhar, solutions architect at Nucleus Security, which also published a blog on Tuesday by Ryan Cribelar on this vulnerability, said the Fortinet products are the types of devices that live at the edge of the network, so they are intended to protect it. As a result, Farquhar said they are the very last place that organizations want an attacker getting access to the management interface.

“In theory, you shouldn’t have that management interface accessible on the internet,” Farquhar said. “Unfortunately, sometimes an organization will make that management interface accessible temporarily, but then forget to close it back up, leaving them exposed. This is one reason why it’s very important to make sure that security teams are scanning all of their publicly-facing address space and looking for things that shouldn’t be there, like management interfaces."

Killexams : Fortinet warns that critical authentication bypass flaw has been exploited
Image: Getty Images

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has added a Fortinet critical flaw to its known exploited vulnerabilities catalog.   

CISA on Tuesday added the flaw to the KEV catalog, a day after Fortinet revealed an authentication bypass CVE-2022-40684 that it patched last week was already being exploited in the wild.

"Fortinet is aware of an instance where this vulnerability was exploited, and recommends immediately validating your systems against the following indicator of compromise in the device's logs," Fortinet said

Also: The scary future of the internet: How the tech of tomorrow will pose even bigger cybersecurity threats

The firm has released updates for FortiOS, FortiProxy and FortiSwitchManager to address the flaw, which affects several of its security appliances.

"An authentication bypass using an alternate path or channel vulnerability [CWE-288] in FortiOS, FortiProxy and FortiSwitchManager may allow an unauthenticated atttacker to perform operations on the administrative interface via specially crafted HTTP or HTTPS requests."

However, for customers that can't apply updates immediately, it has also provided workarounds to disable HTTP/HTTPS administrative interface or limit IP addresses that can reach the administrative interface. 

Separately, CISA on Tuesday also added the Windows flaw CVE-2022-41033 to its KEV catalog. Microsoft released an update for it on Tuesday to address a Windows COM+ Event System Service elevation of privilege vulnerability. Microsoft confirmed it had been exploited but noted that the vulnerability had not been publicly disclosed. 

CISA has ordered federal agencies to apply fixes for both flaws by November 1. 

Security researchers with the Horizon3 Attack Team have published early indicators of compromise to help admins discover compromised devices.

Killexams : Fortinet Warns of New Auth Bypass Flaw Affecting FortiGate and FortiProxy

Fortinet has privately warned its customers of a security flaw affecting FortiGate firewalls and FortiProxy web proxies that could potentially allow an attacker to perform unauthorized actions on susceptible devices.

Tracked as CVE-2022-40684 (CVSS score: 9.6), the critical flaw relates to an authentication bypass vulnerability that may permit an unauthenticated adversary to carry out arbitrary operations on the administrative interface via a specially crafted HTTP(S) request.

The issue impacts the following versions, and has been addressed in FortiOS versions 7.0.7 and 7.2.2, and FortiProxy versions 7.0.7 and 7.2.1 released this week:

  • FortiOS - From 7.0.0 to 7.0.6 and from 7.2.0 to 7.2.1
  • FortiProxy - From 7.0.0 to 7.0.6 and 7.2.0

"Due to the ability to exploit this issue remotely, Fortinet is strongly recommending all customers with the vulnerable versions to perform an immediate upgrade," the company cautioned in an alert shared by a security researcher who goes by the alias Gitworm on Twitter.

As temporary workarounds, the company is recommending users to disable internet-facing HTTPS Administration until the upgrades can be put in place, or alternatively, enforce a firewall policy to "local-in traffic."

When reached for a comment, Fortinet acknowledged the advisory and noted that it's delaying public notice until its customers have applied the fixes.

"Timely and ongoing communications with our customers is a key component in our efforts to best protect and secure their organization," the company said in a statement shared with The Hacker News. "Customer communications often detail the most up-to-date guidance and recommended next steps to best protect and secure their organization."

"There are instances where confidential advance customer communications can include early warning on advisories to enable customers to further strengthen their security posture, which then will be publicly released in the coming days to a broader audience. The security of our customers is our first priority."
