Reported by: Gallagher
Active exploitation of vulnerability*: No
Description of vulnerability: It is possible for an unauthenticated remote DCOM websocket connection to crash the Command Centre services DCOM websocket thread due to improper shutdown of closed websocket connections, preventing it from accepting future DCOM websocket (Configuration Client) connections. Affected versions are v8.20 prior to v8.20.1166(MR3), v8.10 prior to v8.10.1211(MR5),  v8.00 prior to v8.00.1228(MR6), all versions of 7.90 and earlier.
Mitigation: Configure the firewall on the Command Centre server machine to restrict access to the DCOM websocket port (8905), as recommended in the Hardening Guide.

Maintenance releases are now available for:

  • v8.10 - v8.10.1211(MR5)
