Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2021-3647
DESCRIPTION:   Medialize URI.js for Node.js could allow a remote attacker to conduct phishing attacks, caused by an open redirect vulnerability. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a specially-crafted URL to redirect a victim to arbitrary Web sites.
CVSS Base score: 7.4
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/205639 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:N/I:H/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-29425
DESCRIPTION:   Apache Commons IO could allow a remote attacker to traverse directories on the system, caused by improper input validation by the FileNameUtils.normalize method. An attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request containing "dot dot" sequences (/../) to view arbitrary files on the system.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/199852 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-22960
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js is vulnerable to HTTP request smuggling, caused by an error when parsing the body of chunked requests. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted request to lead to HTTP Request Smuggling (HRS). An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to poison the web cache, bypass web application firewall protection, and conduct XSS attacks.
CVSS Base score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/211171 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-38873
DESCRIPTION:   IBM Planning Analytics is potentially vulnerable to CSV Injection. A remote attacker could execute arbitrary commands on the system, caused by improper validation of csv file contents.
CVSS Base score: 6.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/208396 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:H/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-22959
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js is vulnerable to HTTP request smuggling, caused by an error related to a space in headers. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted request with a space (SP) right after the header name before the colon to lead to HTTP Request Smuggling (HRS). An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to poison the web cache, bypass web application firewall protection, and conduct XSS attacks.
CVSS Base score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/211168 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-29060
DESCRIPTION:   Color-String is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an error when the application is provided and checks a crafted invalid HWB string. By sending a specially crafted string, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a regular expression denial of service.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/204156 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-2021-23445
DESCRIPTION:   datatables.net is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject malicious script into a web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
CVSS Base score: 7.2
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/210144 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-37701
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js tar module could allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by an arbitrary file creation/overwrite vulnerability. By creating a directory, and then replacing that directory with a symlink, an attacker could use an untrusted tar file to symlink into an arbitrary location and extract arbitrary files into that location to create or overwrite arbitrary files and execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 8.2
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/208442 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-37712
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js tar module could allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by an arbitrary file creation/overwrite vulnerability. By creating a directory, and then replacing that directory with a symlink that had a different apparent name that resolved to the same entry in the filesystem, an attacker could use an untrusted tar file to symlink into an arbitrary location and extract arbitrary files into that location to create or overwrite arbitrary files and execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 8.2
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/208450 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-37713
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js tar module could allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by insufficient logic on Windows systems when extracting tar files that contained a path that was not an absolute path, but specified a drive letter different from the extraction target. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to create or overwrite arbitrary files and execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 8.2
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/208451 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:N)

Third Party Entry:   207314
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js validator module is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a regular expression denial of service (ReDoS) flaw when checking if the malicious string is a hsl. By sending a specially-crafted string using the isHSL function, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service condition.
CVSS Base score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/207314 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)
