ESA for D2 Fail Open Vulnerability

EMC just released ESA-2015-132: EMC Documentum D2 Fail Open Vulnerability.  I especially like this one:

“Lockbox is a component of Documentum D2 which securely stores passwords in an encrypted file. Removing the file D2.Lockbox from the Documentum Content Server and/or Application Server causes Documentum D2 to fallback to using a hard coded passphrase to encrypt sensitive admin tickets. An attacker can easily recover this hard coded password and obtain admin tickets by decompiling Documentum D2 jar files.”

The remedy is to upgrade your environments to D2 v4.5.  Happy upgrading!


About Scott
I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
