Since 2011, our Common Vision Blox and Common Vision Blox CameraSuite software includes the CodeMeter Runtime from WIBU Systems. WIBU Systems recently published six security issues in different versions of the CodeMeter Runtime. These pose an increased risk for systems that are connected to the company network or the Internet. A successful exploitation of these security issues can not only interfere with the operation of Common Vision Blox , but may also enable the execution of foreign code (details are available at https://www.wibu.com/support/security-advisories.html.
The following versions of Common Vision Blox and Common Vision Blox CameraSuite are affected by the security issue of the CodeMeter Runtime:
|Windows 32 and 64 Bit||all versions since 2011 (11.00.000)|
|Linux x86_64 and i686||all versions since 2011 (11.00.000)|
|Linux armv7l||all versions before 2019 (13.02.000)|
|Linux aarch64||no version|
Also affected are users of older versions of Common Vision Blox prior to 2011 who have installed the "Common Vision Blox Protection Updater" to use CodeMeter dongles with these older versions.
Following the recommendation of WIBU Systems we advise affected users on computers connected to their company network and/or the Internet to update the system to the recently released version 7.10a of the CodeMeter Runtime. This version may be installed on systems with older versions of Common Vision Blox and replaces the version installed by Common Vision Blox. Alternatively, an update to Common Vision Blox 13.02.004 solves the problem for all variants of Common Vision Blox and the Common Vision Blox CameraSuite.
On the page https://www.commonvisionblox.com/en/security-advisory/ and in the Common Vision Blox User Forum we provide all necessary information and download links for the CodeMeter Runtime Update and for Common Vision Blox 13.02.004.
