Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2020-7020
DESCRIPTION:   Elastic Enterprise Search could allow a remote authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by not properly preserving security permissions in search queries. By sending a search request, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to disclose the existence of documents.
CVSS Base score: 3.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/190409 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2019-7611
DESCRIPTION:   Elastic Elasticsearch could allow a remote authenticated attacker to gain elevated privileges on the system, caused by an improper permission issue. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain privileges.
CVSS Base score: 8.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/159335 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2018-3824
DESCRIPTION:   Elastic X-Pack Machine Learning is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote authenticated 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: 5.4
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/150286 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2019-7614
DESCRIPTION:   Elastic Elasticsearch could allow a remote authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a race condition in the response headers. By sending specially-crafted requests, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information of another user from the response header.
CVSS Base score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/164510 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2020-7021
DESCRIPTION:   Elasticsearch could allow a local authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an error when audit logging and the emit_request_body option is enabled. By opening the audit log, a local authenticated attacker could obtain password hashes or authentication tokens and use this information to launch further attacks against the affected system.
CVSS Base score: 1.9
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/196943 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:H/PR:H/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2018-3823
DESCRIPTION:   Elastic X-Pack Machine Learning is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote authenticated 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: 5.4
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/150287 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.
