Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 4 vulnerabilities.

1) Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF)

EUVDB-ID: #VU59057

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-44224

CWE-ID: CWE-918 - Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF)

Exploit availability: No

Description

The disclosed vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform SSRF attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input in forward proxy configurations. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request and trick the web server to initiate requests to arbitrary systems or cause NULL pointer dereference error and crash the web server.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker gain access to sensitive data, located in the local network or send malicious requests to other servers from the vulnerable system.

SSRF if possible for configuration that mix forward and reverse proxy.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

2) Out-of-bounds read

EUVDB-ID: #VU56680

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-36160

CWE-ID: CWE-125 - Out-of-bounds read

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary condition in the mod_proxy_uwsgi module in Apache HTTP Server. A remote attacker can send an HTTP request with specially crafted uri-path, trigger an out-of-bounds read and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

3) Stack-based buffer overflow

EUVDB-ID: #VU53775

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-35452

CWE-ID: CWE-121 - Stack-based buffer overflow

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error when processing Digest nounces in mod_auth_digest. A remote unauthenticated attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request, trigger stack overflow by one nul byte and crash the server.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

4) Inconsistent interpretation of HTTP requests

EUVDB-ID: #VU56474

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-33193

CWE-ID: CWE-444 - Inconsistent Interpretation of HTTP Requests ('HTTP Request Smuggling')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to preform HTTP/2 request smuggling attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to improper validation of HTTP/2 requests in mod_proxy in Apache HTTP Server. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP/2 request to the server and smuggle arbitrary HTTP headers.

Successful exploitation of vulnerability may allow an attacker to poison web server cache and perform phishing attacks.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
