Security Bulletin


Summary

Multiple vulnerabilities exist in the Jackson databind, core, and annotations version used by IBM Spectrum Symphony V7.3, V7.2.1, V7.2.0.2, and V7.1.2, and IBM Platform Symphony V7.1.1 and V7.1 Fix Pack 1. Interim fixes that provide instructions on upgrading the Jackson databind, core, and annotations package to version 2.10.1 (which resolves these vulnerabilities) are available on IBM Fix Central.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2020-9547
DESCRIPTION:   FasterXML jackson-databind could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by the mishandling of interaction between serialization gadgets and typing in com.ibatis.sqlmap.engine.transaction.jta.JtaTransactionConfig (aka ibatis-sqlmap). By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 9.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/177103 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-2020-9548
DESCRIPTION:   FasterXML jackson-databind could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by the mishandling of interaction between serialization gadgets and typing in br.com.anteros.dbcp.AnterosDBCPConfig (aka anteros-core). By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 9.8

CVEID:   CVE-2020-9546
DESCRIPTION:   FasterXML jackson-databind could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by the mishandling of interaction between serialization gadgets and typing in org.apache.hadoop.shaded.com.zaxxer.hikari.HikariConfig (aka shaded hikari-config). By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.
