CVE-2020-10265 Detail


Universal Robots Robot Controllers Version CB2 SW Version 1.4 upwards, CB3 SW Version 3.0 and upwards, e-series SW Version 5.0 and upwards expose a service called DashBoard server at port 29999 that allows for control over core robot functions like starting/stopping programs, shutdown, reset safety and more. The DashBoard server is not protected by any kind of authentication or authorization.


CVSS 3.x Severity and Metrics:

Base Score:  9.4 CRITICAL
Vector:  CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:H/A:H

Nist CVSS score does not match with CNA score
CNA:  Alias Robotics S.L.
Base Score:  9.4 CRITICAL
Vector:  CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:H/A:H

NVD Analysts use publicly available information to associate vector strings and CVSS scores. We also display any CVSS information provided within the CVE List from the CNA.

Note: It is possible that the NVD CVSS may not match that of the CNA. The most common reason for this is that publicly available information does not provide sufficient detail or that information simply was not available at the time the CVSS vector string was assigned.

Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Universal Robots (04/12/2022)

Software version 5.10 brings improvements to usability and configurability of Secure Shell Protocol (SSH), such that tunneling can be used to secure primary, secondary, RT, RTDE, DashBoard server and other interfaces. Universal Robots recommends that all users use SSH tunneling to access these interfaces in applications requiring authentication and encryption. Additionally, SW version 5.10 includes a built-in configurable firewall, allowing fine-grained restrictions of remote access, and number of other security improvements. Universal Robots (UR) recommends always using the latest UR software, as security improvements will be rolled out continuously. CB2 and CB3 cobots are designed to be operating in factory networks where security relies on boundary protection (firewalls) and trusted clients on the network. They must only be connected to trusted networks and operated by authorized personnel.
