Security Bulletin: Vulnerabilities in PostgreSQL, Node.js, and Data Tables from Spry Media may affect IBM Spectrum Protect Plus

Security Bulletin


Summary

Vulnerabilities in PostgreSQL, Node.js, and Data Tables from Spry Media such as SQL injection, HTTP request smuggling, cross-site scripting, bypass of security restrictions, and weaker than expected security, may affect IBM Spectrum Protect Plus.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2021-23214
DESCRIPTION:   PostgreSQL is vulnerable to SQL injection. A remote attacker could send specially-crafted SQL statements when the server is configured to use trust authentication with a clientcert requirement or to use cert authentication, which could allow the attacker to view, add, modify or delete information in the back-end database.
CVSS Base score: 8.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/213379 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/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-2021-23445
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-2021-44532
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by a string injection vulnerability when name constraints were used within a certificate chain. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass the name constraints.
CVSS Base score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/216931 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-44531
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by the improper handling of URI Subject Alternative Name (SAN) types. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass name-constrained intermediates.
CVSS Base score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/216930 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2022-21824
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js could provide weaker than expected security, caused by an error related to the formatting logic of the console.table() function. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using console.table properties to allow an empty string to be assigned to numerical keys of the object prototype.
CVSS Base score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/216933 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/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-2021-44533
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by the incorrect handling of multi-value Relative Distinguished Names. By crafting certificate subjects containing a single-value Relative Distinguished Name that would be interpreted as a multi-value Relative Distinguished Name, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass the certificate subject verification.
CVSS Base score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/216932 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.
