CISA adds Stuxnet bug to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog

Pierluigi Paganini September 17, 2022

The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) adds new vulnerabilities to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog, including the bug used in the Stuxnet attacks.

The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has added six new vulnerabilities to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog.

Below is the list of vulnerabilities added to the catalog:

  • CVE-2022-40139: Trend Micro Apex One and Apex One as a Service – Trend Micro Apex One and Apex One as a Service contain an improper validation of rollback mechanism components that could lead to remote code execution.
  • CVE-2013-6282: Linux Kernel – The get_user and put_user API functions of the Linux kernel fail to validate the target address when being used on ARM v6k/v7 platforms. This allows an application to read and write kernel memory which could lead to privilege escalation.
  • CVE-2013-2597 Code Aurora ACDB Audio Driver – The Code Aurora audio calibration database (acdb) audio driver contains a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability which allows for privilege escalation. Code Aurora is used in third-party products such as Qualcomm and Android.
  • CVE-2013-2596 Linux Kernel – Linux kernel fb_mmap function in drivers/video/fbmem.c contains an integer overflow vulnerability which allows for privilege escalation.
  • CVE-2013-2094 Linux Kernel – Linux kernel fails to check all 64 bits of attr.config passed by user space, resulting to out-of-bounds access of the perf_swevent_enabled array in sw_perf_event_destroy(). Explotation allows for privilege escalation.
  • CVE-2010-2568 Microsoft Windows – Microsoft Windows incorrectly parses shortcuts in such a way that malicious code may be executed when the operating system displays the icon of a malicious shortcut file. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could execute code as the logged-on user.

According to Binding Operational Directive (BOD) 22-01: Reducing the Significant Risk of Known Exploited Vulnerabilities, FCEB agencies have to address the identified vulnerabilities by the due date to protect their networks against attacks exploiting the flaws in the catalog.

Experts recommend also private organizations review the Catalog and address the vulnerabilities in their infrastructure.

It is interesting to note that only the CVE-2022-40139 is a vulnerability publicly disclosed this year, it is an Improper Validation Vulnerability affecting Trend Micro’s Apex One platform.

The older issue added to the catalog in this turn is the CVE-2010-2568 which is the issue used in the Stuxnet attack.

CISA is giving federal agencies until October 6th to address the above vulnerabilities.
