Summary

NetApp FAS 8300/8700 and AFF A400 Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) firmware versions 13.x prior to 13.1P1 were shipped with a default account enabled that could allow unauthorized arbitrary command execution via local access.

Impact

Exploitation of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized arbitrary command execution via local access.

This only affects the BMC of FAS 8300/8700 and AFF A400 storage systems. The Service Processors (SP) or BMCs used on other storage system models are not affected by this specific vulnerability.

The vulnerability is addressed by applying patched firmware to the BMC of the FAS 8300/8700 and AFF A400 systems. An ONTAP update is not required.

While the BMC firmware update requires a reboot of the BMC, the process is nondisruptive to ONTAP.

ONTAP 9.7 includes the patched BMC firmware.
