Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 8 vulnerabilities.

1) Inconsistent interpretation of HTTP requests

EUVDB-ID: #VU64078

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 5.3 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-26377

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

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform HTTP request smuggling attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to improper validation of HTTP requests in mod_proxy_ajp. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the server and smuggle requests to the AJP server it forwards requests to.

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

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

EUVDB-ID: #VU64080

Risk: Medium

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

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-28330

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

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary condition with the mod_isapi module. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the server, trigger an out-of-bounds read error and read contents of memory on the system or perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

3) Out-of-bounds read

EUVDB-ID: #VU64081

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 3.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-28614

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

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary condition within the ap_rwrite() function. A remote attacker can with the ability to force the server to reflect a very large input using ap_rwrite() or ap_rputs() (such as with mod_luas r:puts() function) can trigger an out-of-bounds read error and read read unintended memory on the system.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

4) Out-of-bounds read

EUVDB-ID: #VU64083

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 3.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-28615

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

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary condition within the ap_strcmp_match() function when processing an extremely large input buffer. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the web server, trigger an out-of-bounds read error and read contents of memory on the system.

Note, the code distributed with the Apache HTTP Server cannot be coerced into such a call. The vulnerability can affect third-party modules or lua scripts that use ap_strcmp_match().

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

5) Input validation error

EUVDB-ID: #VU64085

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]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-29404

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 when processing HTTP requests to a lua script that calls r:parsebody(0). A remote attacker can send a very large HTTP request to the affected web server and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

6) Resource exhaustion

EUVDB-ID: #VU64086

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 5.9 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-30522

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 mod_sed does not properly control consumption of internal resources, if the web server is configured to do transformations with mod_sed in contexts where the input to mod_sed may be very large. A remote attacker can trigger resource exhaustion and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation
