Security Bulletin: IBM Watson Discovery for IBM Cloud Pak for Data affected by vulnerability in Node.js

Description

## Summary IBM Watson Discovery for IBM Cloud Pak for Data contains a vulnerable version of Node.js. ## Vulnerability Details ** CVEID: **[CVE-2020-8277](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-8277>) ** DESCRIPTION: **Node.js is vulnerable to a denial of service. By getting the application to resolve a DNS record with a larger number of responses, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to trigger a DNS request for a host of their choice resulting in a denial of service. CVSS Base score: 7.5 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/191755](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/191755>) 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-2020-7760](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-7760>) ** DESCRIPTION: **Node.js codemirror module is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a regular expression denial of service (ReDoS) flaw. By using sub-pattern (s|/*.*?*/)*, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service condition. CVSS Base score: 5.3 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/190938](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/190938>) for the current score. CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L) ** CVEID: **[CVE-2020-1971](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-1971>) ** DESCRIPTION: **OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a NULL pointer dereference. If the GENERAL_NAME_cmp function contain an EDIPARTYNAME, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the application to crash. CVSS Base score: 7.5 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/192748](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/192748>) 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-2020-8265](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-8265>) ** DESCRIPTION: **Node.js is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a use-after-free in TLSWrap within the TLS implementation. By writing to a TLS enabled socket, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to corrupt memory and cause a denial of service. CVSS Base score: 7.5 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/194101](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/194101>) 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-2020-8287](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-8287>) ** DESCRIPTION: **Node.js is vulnerable to HTTP request smuggling. By sending specially crafted HTTP request headers, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to poison the web cache, bypass web application firewall protection, and conduct XSS attacks. CVSS Base score: 7.4 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/194100](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/194100>) for the current score.
