2) Race condition

EUVDB-ID: #VU55668

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-36221

CWE-ID: CWE-362 - Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a race condition in net/http/httputil ReverseProxy when handling ErrAbortHandler events. A remote attacker can trigger a race condition and crash the ReverseProxy.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

3) Input validation error

EUVDB-ID: #VU56829

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-29923

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to bypass implemented security restrictions.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input in net.ParseIP and net.ParseCIDR, as the Go interpreter does not properly consider extraneous zero characters at the beginning of an IP address octet. A remote attacker can bypass access control that is based on IP addresses, because of unexpected octal interpretation.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

4) Infinite loop

EUVDB-ID: #VU65693

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-33194

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

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to infinite loop. A remote attacker can pass crafted ParseFragment  input to the application, consume all available system resources and cause denial of service conditions.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-31525

CWE-ID: CWE-674 - Uncontrolled Recursion

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform a DoS attack.

The vulnerability exists due to uncontrolled recursion when processing HTTP headers. A remote attacker can send a large header to ReadRequest or ReadResponse and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

6) Improper Certificate Validation

EUVDB-ID: #VU55665

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-34558

CWE-ID: CWE-295 - Improper Certificate Validation

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to improper certificate verification in crypto/tls package in Go when processing X.509 certificates. The application does not properly assert that the type of public key in an X.509 certificate matches the expected type when doing a RSA based key exchange, allowing a malicious TLS server to cause a TLS client to panic.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-33196

CWE-ID: CWE-400 - 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 when parsing archives. A remote attacker can pass a specially crafted .zip file to the application, trigger resource exhaustion and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

EUVDB-ID: #VU56022

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-33195

CWE-ID: CWE-79 - Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The disclosed vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitization of data passed from DNS lookups. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted DNS reqponse and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in user's browser in context of vulnerable website.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to steal potentially sensitive information, change appearance of the web page, perform phishing and drive-by-download attacks.
