EMC RecoverPoint command injection

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 EMC RecoverPoint (Backup Software) (unknown version) and classified as critical. Affected by this issue is an unknown code block. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a command injection vulnerability. Using CWE to declare the problem leads to CWE-77. The software constructs all or part of a command using externally-influenced input from an upstream component, but it does not neutralize or incorrectly neutralizes special elements that could modify the intended command when it is sent to a downstream component. Impacted is confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

The bug was discovered 01/26/2017. The weakness was published 01/26/2017 by Mike with EMC Product Security Response Center as ESA-2016-132: EMC RecoverPoint Multiple Vulnerabilities as confirmed mailinglist post (Bugtraq). The advisory is shared for download at seclists.org. This vulnerability is handled as CVE-2016-6649 since 08/10/2016. The attack needs to be approached locally.
