Security Bulletin: Vulnerabilities in libcurl may affect IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management (CVE-2022-27782, CVE-2022-27774, CVE-2021-22947, CVE-2022-22576, CVE-2022-27776, CVE-2021-22946)

Security Bulletin


Summary

Vulnerabilities in libcurl such as bypassing security restrictions, obtaining sensitive information, and man-in-the-middle attacks may affect IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2022-27782
DESCRIPTION:   cURL libcurl could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by an easy connection reuse flaw for TLS and SSH. By sending a specially-crafted request using the connections in a connection pool, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass access restrictions.
CVSS Base score: 9.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/226252 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID:   CVE-2022-27774
DESCRIPTION:   cURL libcurl could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a flaw in the "same host check" feature during a cross protocol redirects. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain credentials information, and use this information to launch further attacks against the affected system.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/225294 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-22947
DESCRIPTION:   cURL libcurl is vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack, caused by a flaw when connecting to an IMAP, POP3, SMTP or FTP server to exchange data securely using STARTTLS to upgrade the connection to TLS level. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to launch a man-in-the-middle attack and gain access to the communication channel between endpoints to obtain sensitive information or further compromise the system.
CVSS Base score: 7.4
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/209453 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2022-22576
DESCRIPTION:   cURL libcurl could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by improper authentication validation when reuse OAUTH2-authenticated connections. By sending a specially-crafted request using user + "other OAUTH2 bearer", an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass access authentication validation.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/225291 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2022-27776
DESCRIPTION:   cURL libcurl could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a flaw when asked to send custom headers or cookies in its HTTP requests. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain authentication or cookie header data information, and use this information to launch further attacks against the affected system.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/225296 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:   CVE-2021-22946
DESCRIPTION:   cURL libcurl could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a required TLS bypassed issue. By sniffing the network, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive data in clear text over the network, and use this information to launch further attacks against the affected system.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/209452 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.
