7) Security features bypass

EUVDB-ID: #VU69326

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-45410

CWE-ID: CWE-254 - Security Features

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to an error when handling ServiceWorker-intercepted requests. When a ServiceWorker intercepted a request with FetchEvent, the origin of the request was lost after the ServiceWorker took ownership of it. This had the effect of negating SameSite cookie protections.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

8) Cross-site tracing

EUVDB-ID: #VU69327

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-45411

CWE-ID: CWE-254 - Security Features

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to an error when handling non-standard headers. Cross-Site Tracing occurs when a server will echo a request back via the Trace method, allowing an XSS attack to access to authorization headers and cookies inaccessible to JavaScript (such as cookies protected by HTTPOnly). To mitigate this attack, browsers placed limits on fetch() and XMLHttpRequest; however some webservers have implemented non-standard headers such as X-Http-Method-Override that override the HTTP method, and made this attack possible again.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

9) Out-of-bounds read

EUVDB-ID: #VU69328

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-45412

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 resolving a symlink such as file:///proc/self/fd/1. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted website, trick the victim into opening it, trigger out-of-bounds read error and read contents of unitialized memory via an error message.

Note, this vulnerability does not affect Windows installations.
