Claroty finds seven vulnerabilities in Dataprobe iBoot-PDU

The Claroty research team (Team82) has found seven vulnerabilities in the iBoot PDU of Dataprobe, the company’s intelligent power distribution product.

Power Distribution Units (PDUs) are common devices found in industrial environments, data centers, and other locations where power supplies need to be close to rack equipment.

Team82’s findings show that an attacker could remotely exploit the vulnerabilities in Dataprobe’s offering, either via a direct web connection to the device or via the cloud.

It adds that this would result in unauthenticated remote code execution.

Citing additional recent research from Censys, Claroty says this has shown that over 2,000 PDUs are exposed to the internet, with 31% of them being Dataprobe devices.

The company also notes that an attack on a remotely exploitable vulnerability in a PDU component platform puts the attacker very close to the possibility of disrupting vital services by disrupting power to the device and therefore all devices connected to it.

Dataprobe has fixed these vulnerabilities in a new version update. Users are urged to update to version 1.42.06162022 as soon as possible.

Dataprobe also recommends users to disable SNMP, Telnet, and HTTP when not in use to mitigate some of these vulnerabilities.

ICS-CERT has also issued an advisory.

The release of this study comes after Exclusive Networks, a global digital infrastructure cybersecurity specialist, announced the signing of its partnership with Claroty.
