Security Advisory

Updated: 29.01.2021

Added vulnerability #VU50040.

1) Stack-based 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-2020-26970

CWE-ID: CWE-121 - Stack-based Buffer Overflow

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 parsing SMTP server responses. A remote attacker can trick the victim to connect to a malicious SMTP server, trigger stack-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

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

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

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

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

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

2) Resource management 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-2020-17527

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to improper management of internal resources within the application when processing HTTP/2 requests in Apache Tomcat. The web server can re-use an HTTP request header value from the previous stream received on an HTTP/2 connection for the request associated with the subsequent stream. As a result a remote attacker can obtain sensitive information from another HTTP request.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

3) NULL pointer dereference

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3: 5.9 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:P/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-1971

CWE-ID: CWE-476 - NULL Pointer Dereference

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a NULL pointer dereference error. A remote attacker can trigger denial of service conditions via the API functions TS_RESP_verify_response and TS_RESP_verify_token). If an attacker can control both items being compared then that attacker could trigger a crash. For example if the attacker can trick a client or server into checking a malicious certificate against a malicious CRL then this may occur. Note that some applications automatically download CRLs based on a URL embedded in a certificate. This checking happens prior to the signatures on the certificate and CRL being verified. OpenSSL's s_server, s_client and verify tools have support for the "-crl_download" option which implements automatic CRL downloading and this attack has been demonstrated to work against those tools. Note that an unrelated bug means that affected versions of OpenSSL cannot parse or construct correct encodings of EDIPARTYNAME. However it is possible to construct a malformed EDIPARTYNAME that OpenSSL's parser will accept and hence trigger this attack.

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 Internet.

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

No. We are not aware of malware exploiting this vulnerability. However, proof of concept for this vulnerability is available.

4) Resource management 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-2020-13943

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to improper management of internal resources within the application when processing HTTP/2 requests. If an HTTP/2 client exceeded the agreed maximum number of concurrent streams for a connection (in violation of the HTTP/2 protocol), it was possible that a subsequent request made on that connection could contain HTTP headers - including HTTP/2 pseudo headers - from a previous request rather than the intended headers. This could lead to users seeing responses for unexpected resources.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

5) Raccoon attack

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3: 6.5 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-1968

CWE-ID: CWE-200 - Information Exposure

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a timing flaw in the TLS specification. A remote attacker can compute the pre-master secret in connections which have used a Diffie-Hellman (DH) based ciphersuite and eavesdrop on all encrypted communications sent over that TLS connection.

Note: The attack can only be exploited if an implementation re-uses a DH secret across multiple TLS connections.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

6) Heap-based buffer overflow

Risk: Low

CVSSv3: 7 [CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:P/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-3156

CWE-ID: CWE-122 - Heap-based Buffer Overflow

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error in sudo. A local user can pass specially crafted data to the application, trigger heap-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system with root privileges.
