Backdoor in HP ProCurve switches, act ASAP

Backdoor in HP ProCurve switches, act ASAP

Hewlett Packard issued a security advisory about HP ProCurve 5400 zl switches containing malware on CompactFlash (CF) cards. Reuse of an infected compact flash card in a personal computer could result in a compromise of that system's integrity. The virus is activated only when user extracts a CompactFlash card from the device and inserts it into a PC.

HP 5400 zl series switch purchased after April 30, 2011 with the noted serial numbers for the following products:

  • J9532A 5412zl-92GG-PoE+ / 2XG SFP+ v2 Switch
  • J9533A 5406zl-44G-PoE+ / 2XG SFP+ v2 Switch
  • J9539A 5406zl-44G-PoE+ / 4G SFP v2 Switch
  • J9540A 5412zl-92G-PoE+ / 4G SFP v2 Switch
  • J9642A HP E5406 zl Switch with Premium Software
  • J9643A HP E5412 zl Switch with Premium Software
  • J8697A HP E5406 zl Switch Chassis
  • J8698A HP E5412 zl Switch Chassis
  • J8699A - HP 5406-48G zl Switch
  • J8700A - HP 5412-96G zl Switch
  • J9447A - HP 5406-44G-PoE+-4SFP zl Switch
  • J9448A - HP 5412-92G-PoE+-4SFP zl Switch
  • J8726A Management Module in the 5400 series zl switch with the following serial numbers:
    • ID116AS04P through ID116AS0HR
    • ID117AS00H through ID126AS0FB

Serial numbers:

  • ID030AS0MZ
  • ID034AS0QP
  • ID049AS0D4
  • ID051AS074
  • ID104AS06S
  • ID110AS0B6
  • ID113AS0HH
  • ID113AS0K2
  • ID113AS0KM
  • ID114AS00V
  • ID114AS02F
  • ID114AS03D
  • ID114AS08N
  • ID114AS0C8
  • ID115AS08P
  • ID115AS097
  • ID115AS0BL

To resolve this problem HP recommends the following actions:

  • Software Purge Option: HP provides a script that is run by the switch manager using the ‘show tech custom’ command. This script will delete the file(s) and directory without exposing a personal computer to the files on the compact flash. The operation of the switch is not impacted. This option is best for customers wanting to maximize the uptime of their network.
  • Hardware Replacement Option: For those customers who have 5400 zl switch inventory that is not on their network and must be purged, this option allows for the Management Module to be replaced. Also, any customer that feels uncomfortable performing the Software Purge Option can choose the Hardware Replacement Option as well. An advanced replacement Management Module will be sent to the customer. Once it arrives, the original Management Module is returned to HP after the new one is installed. The downside to this option is that the 5400 zl switch must be powered down in order to replace the Management Module, resulting in downtime.

Naked Security encourages affected readers to act ASAP to resolve this issue.
