Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 5 vulnerabilities.

1) Incorrect Regular Expression

EUVDB-ID: #VU65835

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 6.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-31129

CWE-ID: CWE-185 - Incorrect Regular Expression

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input when parsing overly long strings. A remote attacker can pass a string that contains more that 10k characters and perform regular expression denial of service (ReDoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

IBM Spectrum Protect for Space Management: before 8.1.17.2

IBM Spectrum Protect Backup-Archive Client: before 8.1.17.2

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

Yes. This vulnerability can be exploited by a remote non-authenticated attacker via the Internet.

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

No. We are not aware of malware exploiting this vulnerability.

2) Path traversal

EUVDB-ID: #VU62463

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 6.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-24785

CWE-ID: CWE-22 - Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform directory traversal attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to input validation error when processing directory traversal sequences within the npm version of Moment.js. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request and read arbitrary files on the system.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

IBM Spectrum Protect for Space Management: before 8.1.17.2

3) Input validation error

EUVDB-ID: #VU57967

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 6.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-3807

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper input validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input when matching crafted invalid ANSI escape codes in ansi-regex. A remote attacker can pass specially crafted input to the application and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

4) Information disclosure

EUVDB-ID: #VU66698

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 4.6 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-29244

CWE-ID: CWE-200 - Information exposure

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to npm pack ignores root-level .gitignore and .npmignore file exclusion directives when run in a workspace or with a workspace flag (ie. `--workspaces`, `--workspace=`). Anyone who has run `npm pack` or `npm publish` inside a workspace, may be affected and have published files into the npm registry they did not intend to include.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
