2010-06 Security Bulletin: Secure Access (SA) & Unified Access Control (UAC): Connecting to untrusted SA or UAC



Article ID: JSA10443 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 30 Nov 2020Version: 2.0
Legacy Advisory Id:
Product Affected:
IVE: SA 500, SA 700, SA 1000, SA 2000, SA 2500, SA 3000, SA 4000, SA 4500, SA 5000, SA 6000, SA 6500, SA 3000 FIPS, SA 4000 FIPS, SA 4500 FIPS, SA 5000 FIPS, SA 6000 FIPS, SA 6500 FIPS IC: IC4000, IC4500, IC6000, IC6500, IC6500 FIPS
SA and UAC use ActiveX controls or Java applets to install and launch client software from a web browser. Due to the inherent problems with using ActiveX and Java applet, users can unknowingly connect to untrusted/rogue SA and UAC and components can be launched without their knowledge.
The Trusted Server List (also known as allowlist) is a new feature added to address the issue.

Due to the behavioral change and impact of the end user environment, Juniper has added this feature in 6.5 IVE OS release and higher and UAC 3.1 release and higher.
