Security Bulletin: Vulnerabilities in libcurl affect IBM Spectrum Protect Plus SQL, File Indexing, and Windows Host agents

Description

## Summary Multiple vulnerabilities in libcurl affect the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus SQL, File Indexing, and Windows Host agents. These vulnerabilities include obtaining sensitive information, man-in-the-middle attacks, denial of service, and bypassing of security restrictions. ## Vulnerability Details ** CVEID: **[CVE-2022-27774](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2022-27774>) ** DESCRIPTION: **cURL libcurl could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a flaw in the "same host check" feature during a cross protocol redirects. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain credentials information, and use this information to launch further attacks against the affected system. CVSS Base score: 7.5 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/225294](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/225294>) for the current score. CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N) ** CVEID: **[CVE-2021-22947](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-22947>) ** DESCRIPTION: **cURL libcurl is vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack, caused by a flaw when connecting to an IMAP, POP3, SMTP or FTP server to exchange data securely using STARTTLS to upgrade the connection to TLS level. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to launch a man-in-the-middle attack and gain access to the communication channel between endpoints to obtain sensitive information or further compromise the system. CVSS Base score: 7.4 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/209453](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/209453>) for the current score.

By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information, and use this information to launch further attacks against the affected system. CVSS Base score: 7.5 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/229741](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/229741>) for the current score.
