Overview :
HCL BigFix Inventory does not enforce “secure” attribute for SSO related cookies when SSO is enabled. Web browsers might expose cookie via unsecured channel when end user is already logged in the application and enters manually http URL instead of https. The cookie might be used to get access to specific information. It is not sufficient to get access to the HCL BigFix Inventory application.
Affected Product(s) :
  • BigFix Inventory v9.x and v10.0.x
Vulnerability Details :
CVE ID : CVE-2020-14248
BigFix Inventory up to v10.0.2 does not set the secure flag for the session cookie in an https session, which can cause the cookie to be sent in http requests and make it easier for remote attackers to capture this cookie.

  • In the BigFix Console, expand the BigFix Inventory node under Sites node in the tree panel.
  • Click Fixlets and Tasks node. Fixlets and Tasks panel will be displayed on the right.
