Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 7 vulnerabilities.

1) Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

EUVDB-ID: #VU18424

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-10130

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

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to bypass certain security restrictions.

The vulnerability exists due to incorrect implementation of row security policies. A remote attacker can use statistics, generated for tables to bypass row security policies and gain access to restricted rows.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

2) Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

EUVDB-ID: #VU20003

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-10208

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.

The vulnerability exists due to way PostreSQL processes SECURITY DEFINER functions. A privileged attacker with EXECUTE permission, which must itself contain a function call having inexact argument type match, can execute arbitrary SQL query under the identity of the function owner.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

3) Improper Authorization

EUVDB-ID: #VU25333

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-1720

CWE-ID: CWE-285 - Improper Authorization

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform unauthorized modification of data in database.

The vulnerability exists due to the ALTER ... DEPENDS ON EXTENSION sub-commands do not perform authorization checks, which can allow an unprivileged user to drop any function, procedure, materialized view, index, or trigger under certain conditions. This attack is possible if an administrator has installed an extension and an unprivileged user can CREATE, or an extension owner either executes DROP EXTENSION predictably or can be convinced to execute DROP EXTENSION.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

4) Untrusted search path

EUVDB-ID: #VU45749

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-14350

CWE-ID: CWE-426 - Untrusted Search Path

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote user to escalate privileges within the database.

The vulnerability exists due to the way PostgreSQL handles CREATE EXTENSION statements. A remote user with permission to create objects in the new extension's schema or a schema of a prerequisite extension can execute arbitrary SQL functions under the identity of the superuser in certain cases.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

6) SQL injection

EUVDB-ID: #VU48436

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-25695

CWE-ID: CWE-89 - Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an SQL Command ('SQL Injection')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary SQL queries in database.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data. A remote authenticated attacker can send a specially crafted request to the affected application and execute arbitrary SQL commands within the application database.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to read, delete, modify data in database and gain complete control over the affected application.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
