Official Statement from Siemens (08/14/2008)

Siemens has analyzed this report and states that no security breach can be found in the Siemens CardOS M4 itself and it thus does not relate to any Siemens component. The reported vulnerability (caused by inappropriate personalization) is due to an issue in the OPENSC middleware detailed information can be found under http://www.opensc-project.org/security.html. Therefore, Siemens recommends all customers and partners using OPENSC to use either the current version 0.11.5 of OPENSC in which this vulnerability is fixed or to use the bug fix suggested under http://freshmeat.net/articles/view/3333/. We hope that we could help you with this recommendation. If you have further questions, please contact the Siemens CardOS hotline under: scs-support.med@siemens.com Phone: +49 89 636 35996 (Mo.-Fr. 9:00-17:00 German time)
