Cisco hat in einem Security Advisory vor Attacken auf die Firmware seiner Router und Switches gewarnt. Hackern ist es demnach gelungen, die Boot-Firmware von Netzwerkgeräten, auf denen Ciscos IOS-Betriebssystem (Internetwork Operating System) läuft, durch eine eigene speziell präparierte Version zu ersetzen. Die Angreifer besaßen offenbar gültige Zugangsdaten für die Geräte, wie Computerworld berichtet.

Laut dem Bericht initialisiert die als ROMMON respektive ROM Monitor bezeichnete Firmware die Hardware und bootet im Anschluss das IOS-Betriebssystem. Die Attacke entspricht folglich einem Austausch des BIOS oder Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) eines PCs durch eine speziell präparierte Version.

Ein manipuliertes ROMMON-Image kann einen Cisco-Router oder einen Cisco-Switch ähnlich wie ein Rootkit dauerhaft kompromittieren. Typische IOS-Infektionen überdauerten einen Neustart dagegen nicht, erklärt Computerworld.

Cisco hebt hierbei jedoch hervor, dass bei der Attacke kein Sicherheitsleck ausgenutzt wird. Um die Firmware zu manipulieren, brauche ein Angreifer entweder gültige Zugangsdaten eines Administrators oder aber einen direkten physischen Zugang zu einem Router oder Switch. “Die Möglichkeit, ein neues ROMMON-Image auf IOS-Geräten zu installieren, ist eine dokumentierte Standardfunktion, die Administratoren für die Verwaltung ihrer Netzwerke nutzen”, schreibt Cisco.

Wie die Angreifer allerdings an die Anmeldedaten gelangt sind, teilt Cisco nicht mit. “Es sollte eine Warnung für Firmen mit IOS-Geräten sein, dass Netzwerkadministratoren ein Ziel sind”, kommentiert Computerworld. Da es sich Cisco zufolge ja um kein Sicherheitsleck handelt, hat das Unternehmen dementsprechend auch keinen Patch angekündigt. Stattdessen verweist es in seinem Advisory auf drei Whitepaper, die Anwendern helfen sollen, Angriffe auf IOS-Geräte zu erkennen und auch zu verhindern.

It seems that to protect against this type of attack the simplest method is to remove remote management capability and keep them physically protected. If routers, switches, etc provided for the user to add a custom layer of security over the factory standard then these attacks would become rare. The same goes for all remotely managed devices. As with malware on computers, forcing the attacker to handle multiple, unique firewalls increases the trouble of creating the attack. It is similar to the difficulty involved in attacking systems with dissimilar instruction types as had protected Apple from the Intel code-based malware when Apple used IBM's PowerPC chipset.
Like in nature, the greater the diversity of defense strategies in crops, the less likely the chance of a pandemic affecting all variants of a species. Processor instruction set diversity works in the same way as would diversity in the access means necessary to affect these systems. Convenience features such as remote management access management will always be security vulnerabilities until a more secure means of validating trusted systems access is developed such as allowing for a physically and reachability protected intranet for device maintenance or a multitude of other techniques can be easily and cost-effectively added to systems.

“In two decades, 3-D printing has grown from a niche manufacturing process to a $2.7-billion industry, responsible for the fabrication of all sorts of things: toys, wristwatches, airplane parts, food. Now scientists are working to apply similar 3-D–printing technology to the field of medicine, accelerating an equally dramatic change.” — Popular Science “3D printing could well rewrite the rules of manufacturing in much the same way as the PC trashed the traditional world of computing” — The Economist
