Security Bulletin


Summary

IBM Security Identity Manager Virtual Appliance (ISIM VA) has addressed the following vulnerabilities due to remote attacker being able to execute arbitrary code to obtain sensitive information , the failure to restrict the number of message attachments, and disclosing sensitive information to unauthorized user

Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2019-11745
DESCRIPTION:   Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS), as used in Mozilla Firefox could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by an out-of-bounds write when encrypting with a block cipher. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web site, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to corrupt the heap and execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system or cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base score: 8.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/172458 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2020-4450
DESCRIPTION:   IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5 and 9.0 traditional could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system with a specially-crafted sequence of serialized objects. IBM X-Force ID: 181231.
CVSS Base score: 9.8

CVEID:   CVE-2019-4705
DESCRIPTION:   IBM Security Identity Manager discloses sensitive information to unauthorized users. The information can be used to mount further attacks on the system.
CVSS Base score: 2.7
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/172015 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:H/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2020-4448
DESCRIPTION:   IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 7.0, 8.0, 8.5, and 9.0 could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system with a specially-crafted sequence of serialized objects from untrusted sources. IBM X-Force ID: 181228.
CVSS Base score: 9.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/181228 for the current score.

DESCRIPTION:   IBM Security Identity Manager stores user credentials in plain in clear text which can be read by a local user.
CVSS Base score: 6.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/171512 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2020-2654
DESCRIPTION:   An unspecified vulnerability in Java SE related to the Java SE Libraries component could allow an unauthenticated attacker to cause a denial of service resulting in a low availability impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base score: 3.7
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/174601 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

CVEID:   CVE-2019-4704
DESCRIPTION:   IBM Security Identity Manager does not set the secure attribute on authorization tokens or session cookies. Attackers may be able to get the cookie values by sending a http:// link to a user or by planting this link in a site the user goes to. The cookie will be sent to the insecure link and the attacker can then obtain the cookie value by snooping the traffic.
CVSS Base score: 3.7
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/172014 for the current score.

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.
