This security bulletin contains information about 2 vulnerabilities.

1) Uncontrolled Memory Allocation

EUVDB-ID: #VU26473

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 3.8 [CVSS:3.1/AV:A/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-8551

CWE-ID: CWE-789 - Uncontrolled Memory Allocation

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists in the Kubelet component due to improper allocation of memory in the kubelet API, including the unauthenticated HTTP read-only API typically served on port 10255, and the authenticated HTTPS API typically served on port 10250. A remote attacker on the local network can cause a denial of service condition on the target system.
