Vulnerability Note VU#778427
Intrinsic Swimage Encore does not securely manage login credentials
Intrinsic Swimage Encore has an unencrypted, hardcoded, default password that could allow an attacker access to protected data.
Intrinsic Swimage Encore automates remote desktop, server, and device deployment. This product includes both a server and a client solution. The Swimage server sends to the client .bin files that contain encypted data. The Swimage client application, Conductor.exe, contains a hardcoded, unencrypted master password that can be used to access the data in these .bin files. Following a system installation the .bin files and Conductor.exe are unlinked from the remote client by the Swimage server, but the memory is not wiped.
Note that there is an option within Swimage Encore that allows the creation of bootable media. The .bin files on the bootable media use the unencrypted master password prior to version 126.96.36.199.
Authentication credentials may be stored in plain text on client machines. The credentials may also be sent unencrypted over the network.
