Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2022-26520
DESCRIPTION:   ** DISPUTED ** In pgjdbc before 42.3.3, an attacker (who controls the jdbc URL or properties) can call java.util.logging.FileHandler to write to arbitrary files through the loggerFile and loggerLevel connection properties. An example situation is that an attacker could create an executable JSP file under a Tomcat web root. NOTE: the vendor's position is that there is no pgjdbc vulnerability; instead, it is a vulnerability for any application to use the pgjdbc driver with untrusted connection properties.
CVSS Base score: 0
CVSS Vector:

CVEID:   CVE-2022-21724
DESCRIPTION:   PostgreSQL JDBC Driver (PgJDBC) could allow a remote authenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by an unchecked class instantiation when providing plugin classes. By sending a specially-crafted request using the "authenticationPluginClassName", "sslhostnameverifier", "socketFactory", "sslfactory", "sslpasswordcallback" classes, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 8.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/218798 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)

IBM X-Force ID:   220313
DESCRIPTION:   PostgreSQL JDBC Driver could allow a remote attacker to gain unauthorized access to the system, caused by the exposure of the connection properties for configuring a pgjdbc connection. By specifying arbitrary connection properties, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain unauthorized access to the system.
CVSS Base score: 9.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/220313 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.
