Security Bulletin


Summary

Multiple vulnerabilities in Golang Go affect Cloud Pak System. IBM Cloud Pak System has addressed these vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2022-24921
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by improper input validation. By using a specially-crafted deeply nested expression, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a goroutine stack exhaustion, and results in a denial of service condition.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/221503 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-2020-29652
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a NULL pointer dereference in the golang.org/x/crypto/ssh component. By sending a specially-crafted request, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/193622 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-2022-24675
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a stack-based buffer overflow in encoding/pem in the Decode feature. By sending a specially-crafted request, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the program to crash.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/224866 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-2022-28327
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by improper input validaiton by the generic P-256 feature in crypto/elliptic. By sending a specially-crafted request with long scalar input, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a panic on the system.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/224871 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-2021-44716
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an uncontrolled memory consumption in the header canonicalization cache in net/http. By sending HTTP/2 requests, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to consume all available memory resources.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/216553 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-2022-23773
DESCRIPTION:   An unspecified error with not treating branches with semantic-version names as releases in cmd/go in Golang Go has an unknown impact and attack vector.
CVSS Base score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/219443 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-2021-44717
DESCRIPTION:   Golang Go could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by an error in the syscall.ForkExec() interface. By causing the erroneous closing of file descriptor 0 after file-descriptor exhaustion, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to compromise data integrity and/or confidentiality in a somewhat uncontrolled way in programs linked with and using syscall.ForkExec().
CVSS Base score: 4.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/216563 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N)
