Dentsply Sirona CDR DICOM contains multiple hard-coded credentials
The Dentsply Sirona (previously known as Shick Technologies) CDR DICOM is software for managing medical dental records. CDR DICOM contains several hard-coded credentials allowing administrative or root access.
CWE-798: Use of Hard-coded Credentials - CVE-2016-6530
Dentsply Sirona CDR DICOM version 5 and below contains several hard-coded database credentials allowing administrative or root access.
A remote unauthenticated attacker may be able to gain administrative access to the CDR DICOM database.
Update the credentials
Mitigation of this issue can be achieved in several ways. Ensuring network access to patient information is protected from improper use is one approach. Another would be to replace the default passwords with user-selected ones. This can be accomplished during a custom installation of SQL Server or by modifying the default credentials after installation.
Additional Information about the default passwords used by CDR, the options for mitigation, and general recommendation on keeping patient data safe, can be found on the company website at the following link: https://www.schickbysirona.com/items.php?itemid=19189
