Vulnerability Details

CVEID:CVE-2021-35517
**DESCRIPTION:**Apache Commons Compress is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an out of memory error when allocating large amounts of memory. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted TAR archive, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service condition against services that use Compress’ tar package.
CVSS Base score: 5.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/205307 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)

CVEID:CVE-2021-36090
**DESCRIPTION:**Apache Commons Compress is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an out-of-memory error when large amounts of memory are allocated. By reading a specially-crafted ZIP archive, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service condition against services that use Compress’ zip package.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/205310 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)

CVEID:CVE-2021-22939
**DESCRIPTION:**Node.js could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions. If the https API was used incorrectly and “undefined” was in passed for the “rejectUnauthorized” parameter, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to connect to servers using an expired certificate.
CVSS Base score: 3.7
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/207233 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N)

CVEID:CVE-2021-3712
**DESCRIPTION:**OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an out-of-bounds read when processing ASN.1 strings. By sending specially crafted data, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to read contents of memory on the system or perform a denial of service attack.
CVSS Base score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/208073 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:L)

CVEID:CVE-2021-22931
**DESCRIPTION:**Node.js could provide weaker than expected security, caused by missing input validation on hostnames returned by DNS servers. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause output of wrong hostnames leading to Domain Hijacking and and injection vulnerabilities in applications using the library.
CVSS Base score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/207230 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L)

CVEID:CVE-2021-22930
**DESCRIPTION:**Node.js could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by a use-after-free on close http2 on stream canceling. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to corrupt memory to change process behavior.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/206473 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N)

CVEID:CVE-2021-29842
**DESCRIPTION:**IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0, 8.0, 8.5, 9.0 and Liberty 17.0.0.3 through 21.0.0.9 could allow a remote user to enumerate usernames due to a difference of responses from valid and invalid login attempts. IBM X-Force ID: 205202.
CVSS Base score: 3.7
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/205202 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:CVE-2021-22940
**DESCRIPTION:**Node.js could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by an incomplete fix for CVE-2021-22930 related to a use-after-free on close http2 on stream canceling. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to corrupt memory to change process behavior.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/207520 for the current score.
