Security Bulletin: openSSL and Apache Hadoop vulnerability impacting Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server, Aspera High-Speed Transfer Endpoint, Aspera Desktop Client, Aspera On Demand (CVE-2020-1971, CVE-2020-9492)

Description

## Summary The openSSL vulnerability CVE-2020-1971 and Apache Hadoop vulnerability CVE-2020-9492 impacts Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server, Aspera High-Speed Transfer Endpoint, Aspera Desktop Client, Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server On Demand and Aspera High-Speed Transfer Endpoint On Demand 4.1.1 and earlier. The fix is delivered in Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server, Aspera High-Speed Transfer Endpoint, Aspera Desktop Client, Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server On Demand and Aspera High-Speed Transfer Endpoint On Demand 4.2.0. ## Vulnerability Details ** CVEID: **[CVE-2020-9492](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-9492>) ** DESCRIPTION: **Apache Hadoop could allow a remote authenticated attacker to gain elevated privileges on the system, caused by improper validation of SPNEGO authorization header. By sending a specially-crafted request, an authenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain elevated privileges to trigger services to send server credentials to a webhdfs path for capturing the service principal. CVSS Base score: 8.8 CVSS Temporal Score: See: [ https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/195656](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/195656>) for the current score. CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H) ** 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.
