Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 3 vulnerabilities.

1) Resource exhaustion

EUVDB-ID: #VU53271

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]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-20718

CWE-ID: CWE-400 - Uncontrolled Resource Consumption ('Resource Exhaustion')

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to application does not properly control consumption of internal resources. A remote attacker can trigger resource exhaustion and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Oracle Essbase: 21.2

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

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

How the attacker can exploit this vulnerability?

The attacker would have to send a specially crafted request to the affected application in order to exploit this vulnerability.

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

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

2) Use-after-free

EUVDB-ID: #VU53589

Risk: High

CVSSv3.1: 7.1 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-22901

CWE-ID: CWE-416 - Use After Free

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to crash the application or compromise the vulnerable system.

The vulnerability exists due to a use-after-free error when processing creation of new TLS sessions or during client certificate negotiation. A remote attacker can force the application to connect to a malicious server, trigger a use-after-free error and crash the application.

Remote code execution is also possible if the application can be forced to initiate multiple transfers with a reused HTTP/1.1 connection or multiplexed HTTP/2 connection in order to inject a crafted memory content into the correct place in memory.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to compromise vulnerable system but requires that libcurl is using OpenSSL.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

3) Buffer overflow

EUVDB-ID: #VU56063

Risk: High

CVSSv3.1: 8.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-3711

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer

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 in EVP_PKEY_decrypt() function within implementation of the SM2 decryption. A remote attacker can send specially crafted SM2 content for decryption to trigger a buffer overflow by 62 bytes and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

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

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
