Dell Networking OS10 versions prior to 10.4.3.0
Dell Networking OS10 has been updated to address a vulnerability which may be potentially exploited to compromise the system.
Dell Networking OS10 versions prior to 10.4.3.0 contain a vulnerability in the Phone Home feature which does not properly validate the server’s certificate authority during TLS handshake. Use of an invalid or malicious certificate could potentially allow an attacker to spoof a trusted entity by using a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack.
The following Dell OS10 versions have been patched to resolve this vulnerability:
Dell recommends all customers upgrade or apply available patches at the earliest opportunity.
If an upgrade cannot be done immediately, Dell recommends to disable the SupportAssist feature on Dell Networking OS10 versions prior to 10.4.3.0.
Customers can download software from https://www.dell.com/support/software/.
Customers can disable the phone home feature by disabling SupportAssist. Command reference: Page 945 of OS10 Enterprise Edition User Guide Release 10.4.2.0 https://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/force10-s3048-on_Connectivity-Guide4_en-us.pdf
