Hi Jamf Nation,

Today we're releasing a hotfix for Jamf Pro that addresses a recently responsibly disclosed security issue.

We strongly recommended that you upgrade to Jamf Pro 10.32.1 as soon as possible. The following CVE is addressed by this release:
[PI-010111]: https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-40808

This is a placeholder CVE that will be updated once we can disclose more information. We have scored this at a 7.5 High security severity using CVSSv3.1 and recommend this update to all customers as this impacts all supported versions of Jamf Pro.  

Please read the resolved issues section of the release notes for more information. Additional details on the resolved vulnerability will be made available at a future date to allow for Jamf Pro instances to be patched before full disclosure.

Please note this does not affect the cloud upgrade schedule for this upcoming weekend. You can find the cloud upgrade schedule here.

What versions are affected prior to 10.32.1?? I have two installations. One running 10.32.0 and one running 10.30.3. I do not see "Affected Versions" listed anywhere.

@BookstoreITAgreed.  Currently running 10.31.1 here and since it's startup time, I'd like to know how urgent this is for the version we are running.

I recall this happened last urgent security patch, didn't give the affected versions right away and we had to ask for it.

Samy boat as everyone else here. We are still running 10.26 and there is no word of what versions are effected. We plan on upgrading next month but it would be nice to know how urgent the upgrade is.

We recommend this upgrade for all users as this issue impacts all supported versions of Jamf Pro.  

This is helpful but should have been in the disclosure. Thank you.

There is no information in that CVE. What is the vulnerability - nothing is shown.

We intentionally do not populate the CVE with the information initially as that would disclose the issue which would put people not patched at risk.  

Once customers have ample amount of time to upgrade to the patched version we will update the CVE entry with more information. This time period varies depending on customer adoption.  

At this point all we can disclose here is its a security issue that we have ranked at a 7.5 High severity and that it impacts all supported versions of Jamf Pro.  There are a few more details that will be shared via email from Customer Success but the crux of the info is that it's a high security severity that is only fixable via upgrading Jamf Pro.

@mike_paul , thank you for the reply. I understand the security concern, however I also agree with the folks below that customers should have some awareness of what result of an exploit would be at the very least.

If the cloud based version of Jamf Pro isn't being updated until this weekend, why should we as on-prem support upgrade ahead of you guys?

@BadinChuck, Jamf Cloud mass upgrades are scheduled in advance so customers know when services may be unavailable.  If a cloud customer wishes to upgrade sooner they just need to reach out to Customer Success.  Since we have no control over when customers who host their own instances update we provide the installer immediately and just ask that they do it at their earliest convenience to best protect themselves from risks.

Agreed @ncats_lab customers knowing the vulnerability is key. Maybe not publicly disclosing the vuln. is a security measure, but we should be made aware of it.

From JAMF:  

I am guessing this has to do with complexity of the issue, or not wishing to alarm the general public, but that is just a guess on my part. We were not told the details of the specific vulnerability either but just simply that upgrade is recommended wherever/whenever possible

BadinChuck

Agreed, we as customers should be informed what is addressed, what versions have the issue, which server OS is effected (i.e. Mac Server, Windows etc.)

How do you download the releases now in the new Jamf Nation interface?

You have to go to account.jamf.com

 

So, it's not just linked from my profile anymore, but I have to go there?

As far as I know it is not.  I could be wrong.  The only way I've been able to get to it since they updated the forums was that page.

Ok.  That stinks they removed that link, but thank you for the information!

Yes everything was moved there to here

Are we waiting for the update cycle to get out cloud instances upgraded? Or will the hotfix be pushed out today?

I reached out to success@ early in the day and still have no response.

@joseph_thompson All standard hosting Jamf Cloud will be updated to 10.32.1 this weekend unless it's otherwise requested by the customer.  If you put in a request this morning you should expect a response soon and they will be able to upgrade you ahead of schedule if that is your request.

Is this related to the forcedentry vulnerability?

@inflicted, No, the hot fix above is to resolve the Jamf product issue PI-010111.  

The forcedentry vulnerability is related to Apple OS functionality.  More information on their recent updates can be found at Apple: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT212807 & https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT212804

It is recommended that people update to versions recommended by vendors to resolve the issues.
