Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 7 vulnerabilities.

1) Out-of-bounds read

EUVDB-ID: #VU52748

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-20254

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

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary condition when mapping Windows group identities (SIDs) into unix group identities (gids), which resulted into negative idmap cache entries created in the Samba server process token. An attacker who can manage to trigger the vulnerability can crash the Samba server or potentially perform unauthorized actions on the system.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

2) Out-of-bounds read

EUVDB-ID: #VU56064

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-3712

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 when processing ASN.1 strings related to a confusion with NULL termination of strings in array. A remote attacker can pass specially crafted data to the application to trigger an out-of-bounds read error and read contents of memory on the system or perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

3) Resource exhaustion

EUVDB-ID: #VU60527

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-43859

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.

4) Infinite loop

EUVDB-ID: #VU61391

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

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.
