ClearPass version 6.5.2 which was released on June 26th 2015 and contains OpenSSL version 1.0.1o which is affected by the vulnerability. No other ClearPass releases are affected by this issue.

    Additional details can be found in the updated security advisory which is attached and will be updated shortly on the public Security Advisory page.

    Hello all,

     

    The ClearPass 6.5 Cumulative Patch 3 is now available. 

     

    In addition to several bug fixes, this release also includes Windows 10, Guest API and OnGuard enhancements. 

     

    While it was our desire to have full OnGuard Windows 10 support in 6.5.3, we have found an issue with the 64-bit version of the OS that we want to make sure you are aware of and is documented as a known issue in the release notes (attached).

    • Symptoms:
      • Health checks on Windows 10 64-bit systems might take longer than on Windows 10 32-bit or earlier Windows releases.
      • The “Windows Security Health Validator”plugin does not properly detect automatic and/or security updates on Windows 10 64-bit systems.

    On April 12th, 2016, a crucial security bug in Windows and Samba was disclosed. The MS-SAMR and MS-LSAD protocol implementations in Samba 3.x and 4.x before 4.2.11, 4.3.x before 4.3.8, and 4.4.x before 4.4.2 mishandle DCERPC connections, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to perform protocol-downgrade attacks and impersonate users by modifying the client-server data stream, aka BADLOCK.

    This vulnerability in Samba could allow an attacker with the ability to intercept traffic (man in the middle) between a ClearPass Policy Manager server and a Windows Active Directory server to get read/write access to the Security Account Manager database, which reveals all passwords and other potential sensitive information.

    Additional details can be found in ARUBA-PSA-2016-003.

    A Hotfix patch for ClearPass 6.4.7, 6.5.5 and 6.6.0 is available for download in the ClearPass Software Update Portal and also from the support.arubanetworks.com at the following location.

    Hello all, 

    I am proud to announce the immediate availability of ClearPass 6.6.1! Despite being a maintenance release, there are several new features that our Engineering and QA team worked tirelessly to include in this release:

    • OnConnect Enforcement
      • Sneak Peak: This feature enables ClearPass to detect and apply enforcement to endpoints connected to wired switches without the need to enable AAA methods such as 802.1x or MAC Authentication. Shocking… I know.
    • Enhancements to Guest account expiration handling
    • New Insight Reports including a long awaited Social Login Report
    • Password lockout options for Admin and Local User databases as well as the AppAdmin SSH account
    • SSO can now be independently enabled between guest web logins and guest operator logins
    • Enhanced support for Airwatch and SOTI MDM/EMM vendors
    • Improvements to Network Discovery for greater endpoint visibility
    • Blacklisting based upon bandwidth consumed and session duration is now available.
    • Several new APIs and enhancements to existing APIs
    • And much, much MORE!

    While not a new feature in 6.6.1 per say, this is the first release you can now try out the Cluster Update interface which was introduced in 6.6.0. This capability helps automate the installation of patches such as this one and we think it will go a long way to make updates and upgrades a smoother experience. If you typically use the Software Updates portal to upgrade your cluster, make sure to install the ClearPass 6.6.0 Cluster Update Interface Patch first before downloading the 6.6.1 patch and starting the Cluster Update Interface.

    As always, please take note of the Important Changes section of the release notes in addition to an improved End of Support section based upon customer feedback.

    The update images have been posted to the support site and the software updates portal.

    A big thanks and congratulations to the ClearPass Engineering and QA teams for reaching this milestone!

    Hello All,

     

    We would like to announce the immediate availability of ClearPass 6.6.10 Hotfix for Security and OnGuard!  Even though ClearPass 6.6 has already reached End of Development (EoD) milestone as documented on the End of Life webpage, we felt that the security of these warranted the release of a hotfix for our customers who have not yet upgraded to ClearPass 6.7.  While this hotfix is primarily focused on security fixes to ClearPass 6.6, it does also include several OnGuard updates, including adding support for macOS Mojave. ClearPass 6.6 will go End of Support (EoS) on April 6th 2019 and so we strongly ask that you continue to remind your customers to upgrade to ClearPass 6.7. The release of this hotfix does not extend ClearPass 6.6’s lifespan and should not set any expectation that there will be more hotfixes for that release train.

     

    This hotfix can only be installed on 6.6.10 systems.

     

    Please read the Release Notes to find a complete list of all issues solved in this patch. (https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/clearpass/cp_releasenotes_6.6.10_hotfix_security_and_onguard /default.htm).

     

    The update images have been posted to the support site (Aruba Support site), MNP, ASP, and the software updates portal. 

     

    A big thanks and congratulations to the ClearPass Engineering and QA teams for reaching this milestone & to the TechPubs team for their work on the Release Notes!
