Security Advisory

1) Cryptographic issues

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 3.2 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-23839

CWE-ID: CWE-310 - Cryptographic Issues

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform a MitM attack.

The vulnerability exists due to a faulty implementation of the padding check when server is configured to support SSLv2 protocol. A remote attacker can perform a MitM attack and force the server to use less secure protocols.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

IBM VIOS: 3.1.0, 3.1.1, 3.1.2

2) Input validation error

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 6.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-23840

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input during EVP_CipherUpdate, EVP_EncryptUpdate and EVP_DecryptUpdate calls. A remote attacker can pass specially crafted input to the application and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

3) NULL pointer dereference

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 5.2 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-23841

CWE-ID: CWE-476 - NULL Pointer Dereference

Exploit availability: No

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 within the X509_issuer_and_serial_hash() function when parsing the issuer field in the X509 certificate. A remote attacker can supply a specially crafted certificate, trigger a NULL pointer dereference error and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
