Security Advisory

1) Out-of-bounds read

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3: 5.7 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-12528

CWE-ID: CWE-125 - Out-of-bounds Read

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to gain access to potentially sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary condition when translating FTP server listing into HTTP responses. A remote attacker can trick the victim into vising a specially crafted FTP server, trigger out-of-bounds read and gain access to memory contents of the heap.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

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

2) Input validation error

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3: 4.6 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-8449

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to gain access to sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input when processing HTTP requests. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request, bypass configured security filters and gain access to certain server resources.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

3) Buffer overflow

Risk: High

CVSSv3: 7.1 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-8450

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error when processing HTTP requests, when Squid is acting as a reverse proxy. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the affected proxy server, trigger memory corruption and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in complete compromise of vulnerable system.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-8517

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error in the NTLM authentication credentials parser in ext_lm_group_acl. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the affected proxy server, trigger memory corruption and perform a denial of service attack.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.
