Vulnerability Details

CVE-2020-24563Trend Micro Apex One Authentication Bypass Vulnerability
CVSSv3: 7.8: AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H
A vulnerability in Trend Micro Apex One may allow a local attacker to manipulate the process of the security agent unload option (if configured), which then could be manipulated to gain a privilege escalation and code execution.

An attacker must first obtain the ability to execute low-privileged code on the target in order to exploit this vulnerability.

CVE-2020-24564, CVE-2020-24565, CVE-2020-25770, CVE-2020-25771, CVE-2020-25772Trend Micro Apex One Out-of-Bounds Read Information Disclosure Vulnerabilities
CVSSv3: 5.6: AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:H/E:P/CR:L/IR:L/AR:L
Several out-of-bounds read information disclosure vulnerabilities in Trend Micro Apex One may allow a local attacker to disclose sensitive information to an unprivileged account on vulnerable installations of the product.

An attacker must first obtain the ability to execute low-privileged code on the target in order to exploit these vulnerabilities.

CVE-2020-25773Trend Micro Apex One ServerMigrationTool DAT File Parsing Double Free Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
CVSSv3: 7.8: AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H
A vulnerability in the Trend Micro Apex One ServerMigrationTool component could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on affected products.

User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must import a corrupted configuration file.

CVE-2020-25774Trend Micro Apex One ServerMigrationTool ZIP File Parsing Out-of-Bounds Read Information Disclosure Vulnerability
CVSSv3: 3.3: AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N
A vulnerability in the Trend Micro Apex One ServerMigrationTool component could allow an attacker to trigger an out-of-bounds red information disclosure which would disclose sensitive information to an unprivileged account.

User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file.


Mitigating Factors

Exploiting these type of vulnerabilities generally require that an attacker has access (physical or remote) to a vulnerable machine. In addition to timely application of patches and updated solutions, customers are also advised to review remote access to critical systems and ensure policies and perimeter security is up-to-date.

Newer versions of the operating system (e.g. Windows 10) may protect against some vulnerabilities such as hard link privilege escalations.

However, even though an exploit may require several specific conditions to be met, Trend Micro strongly encourages customers to update to the latest builds as soon as possible.
