Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2021-33198
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a flaw in the SetString and UnmarshalText methods of math/big.Rat.

CVEID:   CVE-2021-34558
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the failure to properly assert that the type of public key in an X.509 certificate matches the expected type in the crypto/tls package. By persuading a victim to connect to a specially-crafted TLS server, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a TLS client to panic.

CVEID:   CVE-2021-33195
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by not following RFC 1035 rules in the LookupCNAME, LookupSRV, LookupMX, LookupNS, and LookupAddr functions in net. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 7.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/206601 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-29838
DESCRIPTION:   IBM Security Guardium Insights could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the failure to properly enable HTTP Strict Transport Security. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information using man in the middle techniques.
CVSS Base score: 5.9
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/205026 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-33196
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a flaw in the NewReader and OpenReader functions in archive/zip. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted archive file, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a panic or an unrecoverable fatal error, and results in a denial of service condition.
CVSS Base score: 5.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/206602 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-29923
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by improper consideration for extraneous zero characters at the beginning of an IP address octet. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass access control based on IP addresses.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/207025 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-3749
DESCRIPTION:   axios is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a regular expression denial of service (ReDoS) flaw in the trim function. By sending a specially-crafted regex input, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause an application to consume an excessive amount of CPU.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/208438 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-2021-22918
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an out-of-bounds read in the libuv's uv__idna_toascii() function. By invoking the function using dns module's lookup() function, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/204784 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.
