Advisory Details:

Depth Security discovered a vulnerability in the InfoBlox Network Automation Products. This attack requires OS level 
access which must be obtained via another method.

1) Weak password on local MySQL database: CVE-2014-3419

The vulnerability exists due to a weak password used for local MySQL access

An authenticated user with shell access to the operating system can access the contents of any database in the local 
MySQL instance using the local MySQL client (“mysql –u root –p”) with the following credentials:

Username: root
Password: root

Sensitive information such as SNMP community names and network device credentials are encrypted inside of the database.


The vendor has released a hotfix to remediate this vulnerability on existing installations. The flaw was corrected in 
the 6.8.5 release.
