IBM Security Bulletin: IBM Network Performance Insight (CVE-2018-11771)

Share this post:

Apache Commons Compress is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the failure to return the correct EOF indication after the end of the stream has been reached by the ZipArchiveInputStream method. By reading a specially crafted ZIP archive, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the application to enter into an infinite loop. IBM Network Performance Insight has addressed this.

CVE(s): CVE-2018-11771

Affected product(s) and affected version(s):

IBM Network Performance Insight: 1.2.1, 1.2.2, 1.2.3.

Security Bulletin: Vulnerability in OpenSSL affects IBM Cloud Pak System (CVE-2019-1552)

Dec 3, 2019 7:00 pm EST | Low Severity

CVEID:   CVE-2019-1552 DESCRIPTION:   OpenSSL has internal defaults for a directory tree where it can find a configuration file as well as certificates used for verification in TLS. This directory is most commonly referred to as OPENSSLDIR, and is configurable with the --prefix / --openssldir configuration options. For OpenSSL versions 1.1.0 and 1.1.1, the mingw configuration targets assume that resulting programs and libraries are installed in a Unix-like environment and the default prefix for program installation as well as for OPENSSLDIR should be '/usr/local'. However, mingw programs are Windows programs, and as such, find themselves looking at sub-directories of 'C:/usr/local', which may be world writable, which enables untrusted users to modify OpenSSL's default configuration, insert CA certificates, modify (or even replace) existing engine modules, etc. For OpenSSL 1.0.2, '/usr/local/ssl' is used as default for OPENSSLDIR on all Unix and Windows targets, including Visual C builds. However, some build instructions for the diverse Windows targets on 1.0.2 encourage you to specify your own --prefix. OpenSSL versions 1.1.1, 1.1.0 and 1.0.2 are affected by this issue. Due to the limited scope of affected deployments this has been assessed as low severity and therefore we are not creating new releases at this time. Fixed in OpenSSL 1.1.1d (Affected 1.1.1-1.1.1c). Fixed in OpenSSL 1.1.0l (Affected 1.1.0-1.1.0k). Fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.2t (Affected 1.0.2-1.0.2s).CVSS Base score: 2.9CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/164498 for the current score.CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N) ...read more


Security Bulletin: OpenSSL as used by IBM QRadar Network Packet Capture is vulnerable to a timing side channel attack (CVE-2018-0734)

CVEID:   CVE-2018-0734 DESCRIPTION:   The OpenSSL DSA signature algorithm has been shown to be vulnerable to a timing side channel attack. An attacker could use variations in the signing algorithm to recover the private key. Fixed in OpenSSL 1.1.1a (Affected 1.1.1). Fixed in OpenSSL 1.1.0j (Affected 1.1.0-1.1.0i). Fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.2q (Affected 1.0.2-1.0.2p).CVSS Base score: 3.7CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/152085 for the current score.CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N) ...read more
