CVSSv3.1: 6.7 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:P/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-0778

CWE-ID: CWE-835 - Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition ('Infinite Loop')

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to infinite loop within the BN_mod_sqrt() function when processing an ASN.1 certificate that contains elliptic curve public keys in compressed form or explicit elliptic curve parameters with a base point encoded in compressed form. A remote attacker can supply a specially crafted certificate to the TLS server or client, consume all available system resources and cause denial of service conditions.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

4) Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF)

EUVDB-ID: #VU56678

Risk: High

CVSSv3.1: 8.9 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:L/A:N/E:H/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-40438

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

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input within the mod_proxy module in Apache HTTP Server. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request with a chosen uri-path and trick the web server to initiate requests to arbitrary systems.

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.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
