Summary

  o Multiple vulnerabilities exist in the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP)
    implementation for Cisco Small Business 220 Series Smart Switches. An
    unauthenticated, adjacent attacker could perform the following:

       Execute code on the affected device or cause it to reload unexpectedly
       Cause LLDP database corruption on the affected device

    For more information about these vulnerabilities, see the Details section
    of this advisory.

    Note: LLDP is a Layer 2 protocol. To exploit these vulnerabilities, an
    attacker must be in the same broadcast domain as the affected device (Layer
    2 adjacent).

    Cisco has released firmware updates that address these vulnerabilities.
    There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities.

    This advisory is available at the following link:
    https://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityAdvisory/cisco-sa-sb220-lldp-multivuls-mVRUtQ8T

Affected Products

  o Vulnerable Products

    These vulnerabilities affect Cisco Small Business 220 Series Smart Switches
    if they are running a vulnerable firmware release and have the LLDP feature
    enabled.

    Note: LLDP is enabled by default on all LAN ports on Cisco Small Business
    220 Series Smart Switches.

    For information about which Cisco firmware releases are vulnerable, see the
    Fixed Software section of this advisory.

    Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable

    Only products listed in the Vulnerable Products section of this advisory
    are known to be affected by these vulnerabilities.

Details

  o The vulnerabilities are not dependent on one another. Exploitation of one
    of the vulnerabilities is not required to exploit another vulnerability. In
    addition, a software release that is affected by one of the vulnerabilities
    may not be affected by the other vulnerabilities.

    Details about the vulnerabilities are as follows:

    CVE-2021-34779, CVE-2021-34780:
    Cisco Small Business 220 Series Smart Switches Link Layer Discovery
    Protocol Denial of Service Vulnerabilities

    Multiple vulnerabilities in the Link Layer Discovery Protocol of Cisco
    Small Business 220 Series Smart Switches could allow an unauthenticated,
    adjacent attacker to cause an affected device to reload unexpectedly.

    These vulnerabilities are due to insufficient boundary checks when
    processing LLDP messages. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities
    by sending a malicious LLDP packet to the targeted device. A successful
    exploit could allow the attacker to execute code on the affected device or
    cause it to reload unexpectedly, resulting in a denial of service
    condition.

    Cisco has released firmware updates that address these vulnerabilities.
    There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities.

    Bug ID(s): CSCvz29121 , CSCwa32673 , CSCvz29126 , CSCwa32708
    CVE ID: CVE-2021-34779, CVE-2021-34780
    Security Impact Rating (SIR): High
    CVSS Base Score: 8.8
    CVSS Vector: CVSS:3.1/AV:A/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H

    CVE-2021-34775, CVE-2021-34776, CVE-2021-34777, CVE-2021-34778:
    Cisco Small Business 220 Series Smart Switches Link Layer Discovery
    Protocol Database Corruption Vulnerabilities

    Multiple vulnerabilities in the Link Layer Discovery Protocol of Cisco
    Small Business 220 Series Smart Switches could allow an unauthenticated,
    adjacent attacker to cause LLDP memory corruption on an affected device.

    These vulnerabilities are due to missing length validation checks when
    processing LLDP messages. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities
    by sending a malicious LLDP packet to the targeted device. A successful
    exploit could allow the attacker to cause an out-of-bounds read of the
    valid LLDP packet data, which could allow the attacker to cause corruption
    in the internal LLDP database of the affected device.

    Cisco has released firmware updates that address these vulnerabilities.
    There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities.

    Bug ID(s): CSCvz29108, CSCwa32785 , CSCvz29116 , CSCwa32762 , CSCvz29120, 
    CSCwa32793 , CSCvz29134 , CSCwa32782
    CVE ID: CVE-2021-34775, CVE-2021-34776, CVE-2021-34777, CVE-2021-34778
    Security Impact Rating (SIR): Medium
    CVSS Base Score: 4.3
    CVSS Vector: CVSS:3.1/AV:A/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N

Workarounds

  o There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities. However,
    administrators may disable the affected feature.

    To disable LLDP on the LAN interface of a device, do the following:

     1. Open the web-based management interface and choose Administration >
        Discovery LLDP > Properties .
     2. Uncheck the LLDP Status check box.

    While this mitigation has been deployed and was proven successful in a test
    environment, customers should determine the applicability and effectiveness
    in their own environment and under their own use conditions. Customers
    should be aware that any workaround or mitigation that is implemented may
    negatively impact the functionality or performance of their network based
    on intrinsic customer deployment scenarios and limitations. Customers
    should not deploy any workarounds or mitigations before first evaluating
    the applicability to their own environment and any impact to such
    environment.

Fixed Software

  o Cisco has released free software updates that address the vulnerabilities
    described in this advisory. Customers may only install and expect support
    for software versions and feature sets for which they have purchased a
    license. By installing, downloading, accessing, or otherwise using such
    software upgrades, customers agree to follow the terms of the Cisco
    software license:
    https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/end-user-license-agreement.html

    Additionally, customers may only download software for which they have a
    valid license, procured from Cisco directly, or through a Cisco authorized
    reseller or partner. In most cases this will be a maintenance upgrade to
    software that was previously purchased. Free security software updates do
    not entitle customers to a new software license, additional software
    feature sets, or major revision upgrades.

    When considering software upgrades , customers are advised to regularly
    consult the advisories for Cisco products, which are available from the
    Cisco Security Advisories page , to determine exposure and a complete
    upgrade solution.

    In all cases, customers should ensure that the devices to be upgraded
    contain sufficient memory and confirm that current hardware and software
    configurations will continue to be supported properly by the new release.
    If the information is not clear, customers are advised to contact the Cisco
    Technical Assistance Center (TAC) or their contracted maintenance
    providers.

    Customers Without Service Contracts

    Customers who purchase directly from Cisco but do not hold a Cisco service
    contract and customers who make purchases through third-party vendors but
    are unsuccessful in obtaining fixed software through their point of sale
    should obtain upgrades by contacting the Cisco TAC: https://www.cisco.com/c
    /en/us/support/web/tsd-cisco-worldwide-contacts.html

    Customers should have the product serial number available and be prepared
    to provide the URL of this advisory as evidence of entitlement to a free
    upgrade.

    In the following table(s), the left column lists Cisco firmware releases.
    The right column indicates whether a release is affected by the
    vulnerabilities described in this advisory and the first release that
    includes the fix for these vulnerabilities. Customers are advised to
    upgrade to an appropriate fixed firmware release as indicated in this
    section.
