Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 6 vulnerabilities.

1) Resource management error

EUVDB-ID: #VU18108

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 5.2 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-0197

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

The vulnerability exists due to an error within the mod_http2 module when processing update requests from http/1.1 to http/2, if this was not the first request on a connection. A remote attacker can send specially crafted requests to the affected server and perform denial of service attack.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability requires that HTTP/2 protocol is enabled for a "http:" host or H2Upgrade is enabled for h2 on a "https:" host.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Apache HTTP Server: 2.4.34 - 2.4.38


CPE2.3 External links

http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/CHANGES_2.4

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

Yes. This vulnerability can be exploited by a remote non-authenticated attacker via the Internet.

How the attacker can exploit this vulnerability?

The attacker would have to send a specially crafted request to the affected application in order to exploit this vulnerability.

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

No. We are not aware of malware exploiting this vulnerability.

2) Use-after-free

EUVDB-ID: #VU18109

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 6.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-0196

CWE-ID: CWE-416 - Use After Free

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform denial of service attack.

The vulnerability exists due to a use-after-free error within the mod_http2 module when processing HTTP/2 requests. A remote attacker can make the application to access freed memory during string comparison when determining the method of a request and process the request incorrectly.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to gain access to sensitive information or perform a denial of service attack.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Apache HTTP Server: 2.4.17 - 2.4.38

3) Privilege escalation

EUVDB-ID: #VU18110

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 5.1 [CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L/E:H/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-0211

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to escalate privileges on the system.

The vulnerability exists within MPM implementation due to the application does not properly maintain each child's listener bucket number in the scoreboard that may lead to unprivileged code or scripts run by server (e.g. via mod_php) to modify the scoreboard and abuse the privileged main process.

A local user can execute arbitrary code on the system with privileges of the Apache HTTP Server code process.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Apache HTTP Server: 2.4.0 - 2.4.38


CPE2.3 External links

http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/CHANGES_2.4

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

No. This vulnerability can be exploited locally. The attacker should have authentication credentials and successfully authenticate on the system.

How the attacker can exploit this vulnerability?

The attacker would have to send a specially crafted request to the affected application in order to exploit this vulnerability.

The attacker would have to login to the system and perform certain actions in order to exploit this vulnerability.

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

Yes. This vulnerability is being exploited in the wild.

4) Race condition

EUVDB-ID: #VU18111

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 5.6 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-0217

CWE-ID: CWE-362 - Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote authenticated user to impersonate other users.

The vulnerability exists due to a race condition within the mod_auth_digests module. A remote authenticated attacker can send a series of requests and impersonate other users under a threaded MPM.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

5) Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

EUVDB-ID: #VU18112

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 4.7 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-0215

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to escalate privileges on the system.
