Security Bulletin: Vulnerabilities in Apache and Node.js affect IBM Spectrum Protect Plus

Description

## Summary Vulnerabilities in Apache and Node.js such as execution of arbitrary code on the system, cross -site scripting, and bypassing security restrictions, may affect IBM Spectrum Protect Plus. ## Vulnerability Details **CVEID: **[CVE-2020-28458](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-28458>) **DESCRIPTION: **Node.js datatables.net module could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a prototype pollution flaw. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system. CVSS Base score: 7.3 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/193390](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/193390>) for the current score. CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L) **CVEID: **[CVE-2021-21315](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-21315>) **DESCRIPTION: **System Information Library for Node.JS could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the system, caused by command injection flaw when parsing service parameters. By sending a specially-crafted input, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary commands on the system. CVSS Base score: 9.8 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/196894](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/196894>) for the current score. CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H) **CVEID: **[CVE-2020-13959](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-13959>) **DESCRIPTION: **Apache Velocity Tools is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the default error page for VelocityView. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials. CVSS Base score: 6.1 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/197994](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/197994>) for the current score. CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N) **CVEID: **[CVE-2020-13936](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-13936>) **DESCRIPTION: **Apache Velocity could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a sandbox bypass flaw. By modifying the Velocity templates, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code with the same privileges as the account running the Servlet container. CVSS Base score: 9.8 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/197993](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/197993>) for the current score. CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H) **CVEID: **[CVE-2020-13956](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-13956>) **DESCRIPTION: **Apache HttpClient could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by the improper handling of malformed authority component in request URIs. By passing request URIs to the library as java.net.URI object, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to pick the wrong target host for request execution. CVSS Base score: 5.3 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/189572](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/189572>) for the current score.

Customers can evaluate the impact of this vulnerability in their environments by accessing the links in the Reference section of this Security Bulletin. ## Disclaimer According to the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST), the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is an "industry open standard designed to convey vulnerability severity and help to determine urgency and priority of response." IBM PROVIDES THE CVSS SCORES ""AS IS"" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. CUSTOMERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSESSING THE IMPACT OF ANY ACTUAL OR POTENTIAL SECURITY VULNERABILITY. In addition to other efforts to address potential vulnerabilities, IBM periodically updates the record of components contained in our product offerings. As part of that effort, if IBM identifies previously unidentified packages in a product/service inventory, we address relevant vulnerabilities regardless of CVE date. Inclusion of an older CVEID does not demonstrate that the referenced product has been used by IBM since that date, nor that IBM was aware of a vulnerability as of that date. We are making clients aware of relevant vulnerabilities as we become aware of them. "Affected Products and Versions" referenced in IBM Security Bulletins are intended to be only products and versions that are supported by IBM and have not passed their end-of-support or warranty date. Thus, failure to reference unsupported or extended-support products and versions in this Security Bulletin does not constitute a determination by IBM that they are unaffected by the vulnerability. Reference to one or more unsupported versions in this Security Bulletin shall not create an obligation for IBM to provide fixes for any unsupported or extended-support products or versions. ## Document Location Worldwide [{"Business Unit":{"code":"BU058","label":"IBM Infrastructure w\/TPS"},"Product":{"code":"SSNQFQ","label":"IBM Spectrum Protect Plus"},"Component":"","Platform":[{"code":"PF016","label":"Linux"}],"Version":"10.1","Edition":"","Line of Business":{"code":"LOB26","label":"Storage"}}]
