Intel SPS Subsystem data processing

CVSS Meta Temp Score
CVSS is a standardized scoring system to determine possibilities of attacks. The Temp Score considers temporal factors like disclosure, exploit and countermeasures. The unique Meta Score calculates the average score of different sources to provide a normalized scoring system.
Current Exploit Price (≈)
Our analysts are monitoring exploit markets and are in contact with vulnerability brokers. The range indicates the observed or calculated exploit price to be seen on exploit markets. A good indicator to understand the monetary effort required for and the popularity of an attack.
CTI Interest Score
Our Cyber Threat Intelligence team is monitoring different web sites, mailing lists, exploit markets and social media networks. The CTI Interest Score identifies the interest of attackers and the security community for this specific vulnerability in real-time. A high score indicates an elevated risk to be targeted for this vulnerability.

A vulnerability was found in Intel SPS. It has been rated as critical. This issue affects some unknown functionality of the component Subsystem. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a data processing vulnerability. Using CWE to declare the problem leads to CWE-19. Impacted is confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The summary by CVE is:

Improper data sanitization vulnerability in subsystem in Intel(R) SPS before versions SPS_E5_04.00.04.381.0, SPS_E3_04., SPS_SoC-A_04., and SPS_SoC-X_04. may allow a privileged user to potentially enable escalation of privilege via local access.

The bug was discovered 05/14/2019. The weakness was shared 05/17/2019. The identification of this vulnerability is CVE-2019-0089 since 11/13/2018. Attacking locally is a requirement. A simple authentication is required for exploitation. The technical details are unknown and an exploit is not publicly available.

The vulnerability was handled as a non-public zero-day exploit for at least 3 days. During that time the estimated underground price was around $0-$5k.

Upgrading to version SPS_E5_04.00.04.381.0, SPS_E3_04., SPS_SoC-A_04. or SPS_SoC-X_04. eliminates this vulnerability.
