Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2021-29899
DESCRIPTION:   IBM Engineering Requirements Quality Assistant could allow an authenticated user to cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/207413 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-4104
DESCRIPTION:   Apache Log4j could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by the deserialization of untrusted data when the attacker has write access to the Log4j configuration. If the deployed application is configured to use JMSAppender, 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/215048 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-2021-27290
DESCRIPTION:   Node.js ssri module is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a regular expression denial of service (ReDoS) flaw by the SRIs. By sending a specially-crafted regex string, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service condition.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/198144 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-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-2021-44531
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-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-2021-29469
DESCRIPTION:   Node Redis redis module for Node.js is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a regular expression denial of service flaw in monitor mode. By sending specially-crafted regex input, a remote authenticated 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/200618 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)
