Dell SecureWorks iOS Application - MITM SSL Certificate Vulnerability (CVE-2016-2268)


"Access your critical Dell SecureWorks security information on the go."

"With the Dell SecureWorks Mobile App you can:

* Quickly respond to security incidents on your mobile device
* Review/update/create tickets for your critical security events
* Contact the Dell SecureWorks Secure Operations Centers 24/7/365
* Get the latest threat intelligence from our award winning Counter Threat Intelligence (CTU) team"



The Dell SecureWorks iOS application (version 2.0.6 and below) does not validate the SSL certificate it receives when connecting to a secure site.


An attacker who can perform a man in the middle attack may present a bogus SSL certificate which the application will accept silently. Usernames, passwords and sensitive information could be captured by an attacker without the user's knowledge.
