TrustKeeper Scan Engine Update April 20 2012


A remote code execution vulnerability in Samba was disclosed last week, which affects Samba versions 3.0.x – 3.6.3 and could allow root access to an affected system from an anonymous user. This TrustKeeper Scan Engine update includes vulnerability checks for this issue.

Jonathan Claudius of SpiderLabs discovered the Support Incident Tracker (SiT) vulnerability included in this update. For more details on the SiT vulnerability, visit the Trustwave Security Advisories Page.

This update also includes checks for vulnerabilities in Apache, Bitweaver, Jetty, Movable Type, OpenSSL, OpenSSH, osCommerce, PHP and other products.

General Improvements

The TrustKeeper Scan Engine is one of few vulnerability scanners that attempt to better understand the web application that is installed using a technique called "Web Application Fingerprinting". This allows for more precise attacks to hinge on this context resulting in a more accurate understanding of the application and higher vulnerability detection rates.

Some of the Web Application Fingerprint improvements we have made recently are as follows:

  • Adobe ColdFusion
  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager
  • Jetty HTTP Server
  • Microsoft Terminal Services Web Access
  • Movable Type
  • osCommerce
  • Redmine
