Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 7 vulnerabilities.

1) Resource management error

EUVDB-ID: #VU51014

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-25122

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to improper management of internal resources within the application when processing new h2c connection requests. A remote attacker can send specially crafted requests to the server and obtain contents of HTTP responses, served to other users.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

2) Deserialization of Untrusted Data

EUVDB-ID: #VU51012

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-25329

CWE-ID: CWE-502 - Deserialization of Untrusted Data

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to insecure input validation when processing serialized data. A remote attacker can pass specially crafted data to the application and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Note, the vulnerability exists due to incomplete fix for #VU28158 and requires a certain specific configuration.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

3) Improper Handling of Exceptional Conditions

EUVDB-ID: #VU55422

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-30639

CWE-ID: CWE-755 - Improper Handling of Exceptional Conditions

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to improper error management within the application when handling unexpected connection termination. A remote attacker can drop connection with the Apache Tomcat server, which triggers a non-blocking I/O error and causes all requests, handled by that request object, to fail. As a result, a remote attacker can initiate and drop connections to the server and perform a denial of service attack.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

4) Improper Authentication

EUVDB-ID: #VU55417

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-30640

CWE-ID: CWE-287 - Improper Authentication

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to bypass authentication process.

The vulnerability exists due to an error in the JNDI Realm when processing authentication requests. A remote attacker can authenticate using variations of a valid user name and bypass some of the protection provided by the LockOut Realm.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

5) Inconsistent interpretation of HTTP requests

EUVDB-ID: #VU55423

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-33037

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 request smuggling attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to improper validation of HTTP requests, related to processing of transfer encoding headers.  A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the server and smuggle arbitrary HTTP headers.

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

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

6) Resource exhaustion

EUVDB-ID: #VU57389

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-42340

CWE-ID: CWE-400 - Resource exhaustion

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform DoS attack on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due memory leak when processing HTTP connections. A remote attacker can initiate multiple HTTP connections with the web server and consume all available memory on the system.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

7) Cross-site scripting

EUVDB-ID: #VU64627

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-34305

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

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data passed to the form authentication example in the examples web application. A remote attacker can trick the victim to follow a specially crafted link 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.
