Security Notice - Statement About Toolkit Released by Shadow Brokers

  • SA No:huawei-sn-20160823-01-shadowbrokers
  • Initial Release Date: Aug 23, 2016
  • Last Release Date: Aug 26, 2016

On August 15, 2016, Huawei noticed that Shadow Brokers had released a toolkit claimed as from Equation Group on GitHub website, which includes exploit tools, scripts, and manuals targeting multiple Firewall vendors.
Huawei Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) started an investigation immediately. Initial analysis shows that toolkit provides no information about Huawei product vulnerabilities and exploits.
In several manuals and tools disclosed by Shadow Brokers, PSIRT finds the version information about Huawei Eudemon300/500/1000 and some description about how to modify firewall configuration, memory, and firmware after login using an admin account and password. 

Up to now, Huawei has not received any report about tool/script implantation in Huawei firewall products. To help customers detect whether their firewall device BIOSes and host software packages have been tampered with and remove implanted tools/scripts, Huawei provides a patch package for checking the integrity of the BIOSes and host software packages of the Eudemon300/500/1000 series.
