Security Bulletin: A security vulnerability has been identified in Bleach shipped with IBM Watson Machine Learning Community Edition (WMLCE)

Description

## Summary Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in the Bleach package, which is either built in to or distributed with IBM WMLCE. ## Vulnerability Details ** CVEID: **[CVE-2020-6816](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-6816>) ** DESCRIPTION: **Mozilla Bleach is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the bleach.clean. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the svg or math in the allowed/allowlisted tags to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. 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/178671](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/178671>) 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-2020-6802](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-6802>) ** DESCRIPTION: **Mozilla Bleach is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the bleach.clean A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a raw tag in the allowed/allowlisted tags option to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. 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/178672](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/178672>) 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) ## Affected Products and Versions Affected Product(s)| Version(s) ---|--- IBM WML Community Edition| 1.6.2 IBM WML Community Edition| 1.7.0 ## Remediation/Fixes All IBM WMLCE distribution channels have been updated. For those using containers, pulling the image again from its upstream container registry (<https://hub.docker.com/r/ibmcom/powerai>, <https://catalog.redhat.com>, etc) will download an updated image with CVEs resolved. All others should update directly from our conda channel via `conda update`. ## Workarounds and Mitigations None ## Get Notified about Future Security Bulletins Subscribe to [My Notifications](< http://www-01.ibm.com/software/support/einfo.html>) to be notified of important product support alerts like this. ### References [Complete CVSS v3 Guide](<http://www.first.org/cvss/user-guide> "Link resides outside of ibm.com" ) [On-line Calculator v3](<http://www.first.org/cvss/calculator/3.0> "Link resides outside of ibm.com" ) Off ## Related Information [IBM Secure Engineering Web Portal](<http://www.ibm.com/security/secure-engineering/bulletins.html>) [IBM Product Security Incident Response Blog](<http://www.ibm.com/blogs/psirt>) ## Change History 18 May 2020: Initial Publication *The CVSS Environment Score is customer environment specific and will ultimately impact the Overall CVSS 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."

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":"BU053","label":"Cloud & Data Platform"},"Product":{"code":"SGLMYS","label":"IBM PowerAI"},"Component":"","Platform":[{"code":"PF043","label":"Red Hat"},{"code":"PF031","label":"Ubuntu"}],"Version":"1.6.2, 1.7.0","Edition":"","Line of Business":{"code":"LOB10","label":"Data and AI"}}]
