Improper Verification of Cryptographic Signature
The Robot application in Ip-label Newtest before v8.5R0 was discovered to use weak signature checks on executed binaries, allowing attackers to have write access and escalate privileges via replacing NEWTESTREMOTEMANAGER.EXE.
CWE-347 - Improper Verification of Cryptographic Signature
A cryptographic protocol is meant to ensure that services are provided in a secure manner. An application with absent or improper verification of cryptographic signatures allows malicious users to feed false messages to valid users or to disclose sensitive data, subverting the goals of the protocol. This can lead to security failures such as false authentication, account hijacking, and privilege escalation.
