Original Release date: 01 Oct 2013 | Last revised: 23 Oct 2013


Baramundi Management Suite versions 7.5 to 8.9 contains multiple vulnerabilities related to clear-text credential storage and transmission.


CWE-319: Cleartext Transmission of Sensitive Information - CVE-2013-3593

Baramundi Mangement Suite versions 7.5 to 8.9 transfers data in cleartext between the server and clients, and stores data in cleartext. It is unknown if Baramundi Management Suite version 8.9 is affected by this vulnerability.

CWE-312: Cleartext Storage of Sensitive Information - CVE-2013-3624
When Baramundi Management Suite versions 7.5 to 8.9 is used for OS deployment, it stores the credentials in an unencrypted form on the deployed systems. It is unknown if Baramundi Management Suite version 8.9 is affected by this vulnerability.

CWE-321: Use of Hard-coded Cryptographic Key - CVE-2013-3625
Baramundi Management Suite versions 7.5 to 8.9 utilizes a hard-coded encryption key stored in a dll file. It is unknown if Baramundi Management Suite version 8.9 is affected by this vulnerability.


Since the software is used as an operating system deployment solution, it must have administrative rights to operate. As such, there are several impacts:
Privilege Escalation

  • Administrative privileges can be obtained on any local machine that was installed via Baramundi Management Suite.
  • Administrative privileges in Microsoft Active Directory can potentially be obtained.
    Credential Theft
  • Credentials may be obtained by sniffing the traffic on the network.

  • Solution

    We are currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem.

    Use Encryption
    Use layer 3 encryption between the Baramundi clients and servers to prevent sniffing attacks.
