EMC Data Protection Advisor 6.3.x before patch 67 and 6.4.x before patch 130 contains undocumented accounts with hard-coded passwords and various privileges. Affected accounts are: "Apollo System Test", "emc.dpa.agent.logon" and "emc.dpa.metrics.logon". An attacker with knowledge of the password could potentially use these accounts via REST APIs to gain unauthorized access to EMC Data Protection Advisor (including potentially access with administrative privileges).



Dell EMC Data Protection Advisor versions prior to 6.3 Patch 159 and Dell EMC Data Protection Advisor versions prior to 6.4 Patch 110 contain a hardcoded database account with administrative privileges. The affected account is "apollosuperuser." An attacker with local access to the server where DPA Datastore Service is installed and knowledge of the password may potentially gain unauthorized access to the database. Note: The Datastore Service database cannot be accessed remotely using this account.



** DISPUTED ** This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of EMC Data Protection Advisor 6.3.0. Authentication is required to exploit this vulnerability. The specific flaw exists within the EMC DPA Application service, which listens on TCP port 9002 by default. When parsing the preScript parameter, the process does not properly validate a user-supplied string before using it to execute a system call. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code under the context of SYSTEM. Was ZDI-CAN-4697. NOTE: Dell EMC disputes that this is a vulnerability.



EMC Data Protection Advisor prior to 6.4 contains a path traversal vulnerability. A remote authenticated high privileged user may potentially exploit this vulnerability to access unauthorized information from the underlying OS server by supplying specially crafted strings in input parameters of the application.



EMC Data Protection Advisor prior to 6.4 contains multiple blind SQL injection vulnerabilities. A remote authenticated attacker may potentially exploit these vulnerabilities to gain information about the application by causing execution of arbitrary SQL commands.



EMC Data Protection Advisor 6.1.x, EMC Data Protection Advisor 6.2, EMC Data Protection Advisor 6.2.1, EMC Data Protection Advisor 6.2.2, EMC Data Protection Advisor 6.2.3 prior to patch 446 has a path traversal vulnerability that may potentially be exploited by malicious users to compromise the affected system.



Directory traversal vulnerability in the Web UI in EMC Data Protection Advisor (DPA) 5.6 through SP1, 5.7 through SP1, and 5.8 through SP4 allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files via unspecified vectors.



Integer overflow in the DPA_Utilities library in EMC Data Protection Advisor (DPA) 5.5 through 5.8 SP1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a negative 64-bit value in a certain size field.



The DPA_Utilities.cProcessAuthenticationData function in EMC Data Protection Advisor (DPA) 5.5 through 5.8 SP1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via an AUTHENTICATECONNECTION command that (1) lacks a password field or (2) has an empty password.



EMC Data Protection Advisor before 5.8.1 places cleartext account credentials in the DPA configuration file in unspecified circumstances, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information by reading this file.
