Security Bulletin


Summary

OpenSSL vulnerabilities were disclosed on March 27, 2018 by the OpenSSL Project. OpenSSL, used by the IBM Spectrum Protect (formerly Tivoli Storage Manager) Client and IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments (formerly Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments): Data Protection for VMware, has addressed the applicable CVEs.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2018-0733
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by the failure to properly compare byte values by the PA-RISC CRYPTO_memcmp() function used on HP-UX PA-RISC targets. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to forge messages, some of which may be authenticated.
CVSS Base Score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/140849 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2018-0739
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service. By sending specially crafted ASN.1 data with a recursive definition, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to consume excessive stack memory.
CVSS Base Score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/140847 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

Affected Products and Versions

These security exposures affect network connections between IBM Spectrum Protect (formerly Tivoli Storage Manager) and VMware services. This exposure affects:

  • IBM Spectrum Protect (formerly Tivoli Storage Manager) Client levels:
    - 7.1.0.0 through 7.1.8.3
    - 6.4 and below all levels (6.4 and below are EOS)

    Note that VMware services for the 8.1 client are not affected because the affected component in 8.1 has been moved to Data Protection for VMware.
