Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2022-22719
DESCRIPTION:   Apache HTTP Server is vulnerable to a denial of service. By using a specially crafted request body to read a random memory area, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the process to crash.
CVSS Base score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/221667 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)

CVEID:   CVE-2022-22720
DESCRIPTION:   Apache HTTP Server is vulnerable to HTTP request smuggling, caused by the failure to close inbound connection when errors are encountered discarding the request body. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to poison the web cache, bypass web application firewall protection, and conduct XSS attacks.
CVSS Base score: 7.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/221668 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-2022-22721
DESCRIPTION:   Apache HTTP Server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by an integer overflow. If LimitXMLRequestBody is set to allow request bodies larger than 350MB, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
CVSS Base score: 7.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/221666 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-2022-25315
DESCRIPTION:   libexpat could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by an integer overflow in storeRawNames. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted file, an attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 7.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/219945 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2022-25313
DESCRIPTION:   libexpat is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by stack exhaustion in build_model. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted file, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a large nesting depth in the DTD element to cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base score: 5.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/219947 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-2022-25235
DESCRIPTION:   libexpat is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by improper input validation in xmltok_impl.c. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted content with malformed encoding, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service condition.
CVSS Base score: 3.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/219782 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

CVEID:   CVE-2022-25236
DESCRIPTION:   libexpat is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by improper protection against insertion of namesep characters into namespace URIs in xmlparse.c. By sending a specially-crafted request, 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/219784 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)

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.
