Phillips clinical imaging solution plagued by vulnerabilities

Phillips is developing a software update to mitigate 35 CVE-numbered vulnerabilities in the Philips IntelliSpace Portal (ISP), a clinical imaging visualization and analysis solution that is used by healthcare and public health organizations around the world. According to ICS-CERT, some of the vulnerabilities can be exploited remotely by unauthenticated attackers and exploits for some of them are publicly available, although none are known to specifically target Philips ISP.

Neither ICS-CERT nor Philips mentions how the vulnerabilities were discovered, but it’s likely that at least some of them are found in third-party code included in this and other products not manufactured by Phillips. The vulnerabilities fall into several categories: improper input validation; information exposure; permission, privilege and access control; unquoted search path or element; leftover debug code; and cryptographic issues.
