Fixed Vulnerability: Paramiko vulnerability (CVE-2018-1000805)

SEP sesam uses Paramiko for the SM_SSH access mode. Paramiko contains an incorrect access control vulnerability in SSH server that can result in Remote Code Execution (RCE).
Paramiko versions 2.4.1, 2.3.2, 2.2.3, 2.1.5, 2.0.8, 1.18.5, 1.17.6. contain an incorrect access control vulnerability in SSH server that can result in RCE. This attack appears to be exploitable via network connectivity. The vendor has confirmed the vulnerability and fixed the security flaw. This issue is listed as CVE-2018-1000805 in the MITRE CVE dictionary and in the NIST NVD.


  • BUGFIX: (#24586) Problem: GUI package on Windows 32 Bit system fails due to Java 64 Bit check. Solution: On a Windows 32 Bit system Java 32 Bit is now accepted.


  • BUGFIX: (#24384) Changing the saveset EOL of the source of a migrated saveset doesn't work right. Problem: When changing the saveset-EOL of the migrated saveset, the saveset-EOL of the original saveset will also be changed.


  • BUGFIX: (#24388) Micro Focus restore of a migrated DIFF backup could fail with 'System detected error, operation aborted'.


  • BUGFIX: (#24443) Restore fails if no data from first tape is read.

Fixed Vulnerability: Paramiko authentication bypass in the SSH Server (CVE-2018-7750)

SEP sesam uses the SSH implementation Paramiko for the SM_SSH access mode. A vulnerability in Paramiko could allow unauthorized access to SEP sesam.
Cause in the SSH server implementation of Paramiko does not properly check whether authentication is completed before processing other requests. By using a customized SSH client, an attacker can skip the authentication step and gain unauthorized access to resources on the SEP sesam system. The vendor has confirmed the vulnerability and fixed the security flaw in Paramiko. This issue is listed as CVE-2018-7750 in the MITRE CVE dictionary and in the NIST NVD.
