Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 3 vulnerabilities.

1) Heap-based buffer overflow

EUVDB-ID: #VU61672

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-27666

CWE-ID: CWE-122 - Heap-based Buffer Overflow

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to escalate privileges on the system.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error within IPsec ESP transformation code in net/ipv4/esp4.c and net/ipv6/esp6.c in Linux kernel. A local unprivileged user can pass specially crafted data to the system, trigger a heap-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

IBM Elastic Storage System: 6.1.0 - 6.1.3.1

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

2) Security restrictions bypass

EUVDB-ID: #VU61258

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-4197

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to escalate privileges on the system.

The vulnerability exists due to missing permissions checks within the cgroups (control groups) functionality of Linux Kernel when writing into a file descriptor. A local low privileged process can trick a higher privileged parent process into writing arbitrary data into files, which can result in denial of service or privileges escalation.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

3) Use of insufficiently random values

EUVDB-ID: #VU63839

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-20322

CWE-ID: CWE-330 - Use of Insufficiently Random Values

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to an error when processing received ICMP errors. A remote attacker can effectively bypass the source port UDP randomization to gain access to sensitive information.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
