LoadMaster 7.1.35.7 (Long Term Support)

Refer to the sections below for details about firmware version 7.1.35.7. This was released on 5th December 2018.

Note: This firmware is not available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.  However it is still possible to patch upgrade from the LTS version 7.1.35.6 which is available in the Marketplace.

Feature Enhancements

  • Updated OpenSSH to version 7.9p1 to mitigate against CVE-2018-15473.

  • Previously, there was no Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) monitoring facility available for hardware LoadMaster's that supported disk RAID configurations.
    Now, in the Debug Options page on the LoadMaster Web User Interface (WUI), there are options to display the RAID controller and RAID disk information. Status information in relation to RAID events is also available in the LoadMaster message logs and using Syslog.

Issues Resolved

PD-11990

Addressed a further critical vulnerability (CVE-2018-9091) in the LoadMaster Operating System (LMOS) related to Session Management that could, in certain circumstances, allow an unauthorized, remote attacker to bypass security protections, and gain access to sensitive system data, thereby compromising the system. This vulnerability was partially addressed in 7.1.35.6.

The expanded scope of this vulnerability covers exploitation through the use of insecure Web User Interface (WUI) endpoints associated with historical graphs and licensing. These vulnerabilities have been addressed in this release. Further information can be found here: Mitigation For Remote Access Execution Vulnerability.
