Security Advisory

1) Input validation error

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3: 7.7 [CVSS:3.0/AV:A/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-12351

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to compromise the affected system.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input within the BlueZ implementation in Linux kernel. A remote attacker on the local network can pass specially crafted input to the application and execute arbitrary code on the system.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

Yes. This vulnerability can be exploited by a remote non-authenticated attacker via the local network (LAN).

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

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

2) Improper access control

Risk: Medium

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

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-12352

CWE-ID: CWE-284 - Improper Access Control

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to improper access restrictions in BlueZ implementation in Linux kernel. A remote attacker on the local network can pass specially crafted input to the application and gain access to sensitive information.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
