Security Bulletin: Vulnerabilities have been identified in Spring Framework, OpenSSL and Apache HTTP Server shipped with the DS8000 Hardware Management Console (HMC)

Description

## Summary The updates indicated below have been released to address the following vulnerabilities: Spring Framework CVE-2022-22965, OpenSSL vulnerabilities CVE-2022-0778, Apache HTTP Server CVE-2021-26691, CVE-2021-40438, CVE-2021-44790, and CVE-2021-20325. ## Vulnerability Details **CVEID: **[CVE-2022-0778](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2022-0778>) **DESCRIPTION: **OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a flaw in the BN_mod_sqrt() function when parsing certificates. By using a specially-crafted certificate with invalid explicit curve parameters, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause an infinite loop, and results in a denial of service condition. CVSS Base score: 7.5 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/221911](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/221911>) 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-2021-26691](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-26691>) **DESCRIPTION: **Apache HTTP Server is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the mod_session. By sending a specially crafted SessionHeader, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and cause a denial of service. CVSS Base score: 5.9 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/203465](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/203465>) for the current score. CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H) **CVEID: **[CVE-2021-40438](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-40438>) **DESCRIPTION: **Apache HTTP Server is vulnerable to server-side request forgery, caused by an error in mod_proxy. By sending a specially crafted request uri-path, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to forward the request to an origin server chosen by the remote user. CVSS Base score: 9 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/209526](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/209526>) for the current score. CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H) **CVEID: **[CVE-2022-22965](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2022-22965>) **DESCRIPTION: **Spring Framework could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by the improper handling of PropertyDescriptor objects used with data binding. By sending specially-crafted data to a Spring Java application, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system. Note: The exploit requires Spring Framework to be run on Tomcat as a WAR deployment with JDK 9 or higher using spring-webmvc or spring-webflux. Note: This vulnerability is also known as Spring4Shell or SpringShell. CVSS Base score: 9.8 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/223103](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/223103>) 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-2021-44790](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-44790>) **DESCRIPTION: **Apache HTTP Server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking in the mod_lua multipart parser called from Lua scripts). By sending a specially crafted request, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash. CVSS Base score: 9.8 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/215686](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/215686>) 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-2021-20325](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-20325>) **DESCRIPTION: **Red Hat Enterprise Linux is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by the missing fixes for CVE-2021-40438 and CVE-2021-26691 in the versions of httpd. By sending specially crafted requests, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and or perform SSRF attacks. CVSS Base score: 9 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/220125](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/220125>) 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":"BU010","label":"Systems - Storage"},"Product":{"code":"ST8GLJ","label":"DS8900F"},"Component":"","Platform":[{"code":"PF016","label":"Linux"}],"Version":"NA","Edition":""}]
