Security Bulletin


Summary

IBM Watson Discovery for IBM Cloud Pak for Data contains a vulnerable version of XStream.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2021-21342
DESCRIPTION:   XStream is vulnerable to server-side request forgery, caused by a flaw when processing stream at unmarshalling time. By manipulating the processed input stream and replace or inject objects, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to conduct SSRF attack o access data streams from an arbitrary URL referencing a resource in an intranet or the local host.
CVSS Base score: 7.4
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/198619 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-21350
DESCRIPTION:   XStream could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a flaw when processing stream at unmarshalling time. By manipulating the processed input stream and replace or inject objects, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 8.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/198627 for the current score.

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-21345
DESCRIPTION:   XStream could allow a remote authenticated attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the system, caused by a flaw when processing stream at unmarshalling time. By manipulating the processed input stream and replace or inject objects, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary commands on the system.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/198622 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-21348
DESCRIPTION:   XStream is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a regular expression denial of service flaw (ReDos). By using a specially-crafted regular expression input, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to consume maximum CPU time.
CVSS Base score: 5.9
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/198625 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-21344
DESCRIPTION:   XStream could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a flaw when processing stream at unmarshalling time. By manipulating the processed input stream and replace or inject objects, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code from a remote server.
CVSS Base score: 9.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/198621 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)
