Description of the vulnerability

The Blowfish and Triple-DES symetric encryption algorithms use 64 bit blocks.

However, if they are used in CBC mode, a collision occurs after 785 GB transferred, and it is then possible to decrypt blocks with an attack lasting two days.

An attacker can therefore create a TLS/VPN session with a Blowfish/Triple-DES algorithm, and perform a two days attack, in order to decrypt data.

ISC BIND: infinite loop via lwresd

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can generate an infinite loop via lwresd of ISC BIND, in order to trigger a denial of service.
Impacted products: Debian, Fedora, HP-UX, AIX, BIND, openSUSE Leap, Solaris, RHEL, Slackware, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, SLES, VxWorks.
Severity: 2/4.
Creation date: 19/07/2016.

Description of the vulnerability

The ISC BIND product implements the "lightweight resolver protocol" in the lwresd daemon, or in named when named.conf contains the "lwres" section.

However, if getrrsetbyname() is called to resolve a long relative name (combined with a search list entry), an infinite recursion occurs in lwresd/lwres.

An attacker can therefore generate an infinite loop via lwresd of ISC BIND, in order to trigger a denial of service.

Description of the vulnerability

Most web servers support CGI scripts (PHP, Python, etc.).

According to the RFC 3875, when a web server receives a Proxy header, it has to create the HTTP_PROXY environment variable for CGI scripts.

However, this variable is also used to store the name of the proxy that web clients has to use. The PHP (via Guzzle, Artax, etc.) and Python scripts will thus use the proxy indicated in the web query for all client queries they will send during the CGI session.

An attacker can therefore send a query with a malicious Proxy header to a web service hosting a CGI script creating web client queries, so they go through attacker's proxy.

Description of the vulnerability

The Apache Tomcat product uses a slightly fork of the Apache Commons FileUpload library.

This library is used to receive files from an HTTP client to the server. However, when the file size is such that the size of the MIME envelope (file content + MIME headers) is equal to the size of the file reading buffer, the transfer requires an extremely long duration.

An attacker can therefore send files of a specially chosen size to Apache Tomcat, in order to overload the server.

Apache Tomcat: read-write access via setGlobalContext

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker, who is allowed to upload a malicious web application on the service, can bypass access restrictions via setGlobalContext of Apache Tomcat, in order to read or alter data.
Impacted products: Tomcat, Debian, Fedora, SiteScope, HP-UX, openSUSE Leap, Oracle Directory Server, Oracle Directory Services Plus, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle GlassFish Server, Oracle Identity Management, Oracle iPlanet Web Server, Oracle OIT, Oracle Virtual Directory, WebLogic, Oracle Web Tier, RHEL, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, SLES, Ubuntu.
Severity: 2/4.
Creation date: 22/02/2016.
Identifiers: 1980693, c05150442, c05324755, cpuapr2017, cpuoct2017, CVE-2016-0763, DSA-3530-1, DSA-3552-1, DSA-3609-1, FEDORA-2016-e6651efbaf, HPSBGN03669, HPSBUX03606, openSUSE-SU-2016:0865-1, RHSA-2016:1087-01, RHSA-2016:1088-01, RHSA-2016:1089-01, RHSA-2016:2599-02, RHSA-2016:2807-01, RHSA-2016:2808-01, SUSE-SU-2016:0769-1, SUSE-SU-2016:0822-1, USN-3024-1, VIGILANCE-VUL-18999.

Description of the vulnerability

The Apache Tomcat product can execute a web application from an untrusted source with a Security Manager.

However, a malicious application can use ResourceLinkFactory.setGlobalContext() to inject a context in another application, and access to its data.

An attacker, who is allowed to upload a malicious web application on the service, can therefore bypass access restrictions via setGlobalContext of Apache Tomcat, in order to read or alter data.

Description of the vulnerability

The Apache Tomcat product can execute a web application from an untrusted source with a Security Manager.

However, a malicious application can use PersistentManager to store an object in a session, and thus execute code.

An attacker, who is allowed to upload a malicious web application on the service, can therefore use the PersistentManager of Apache Tomcat, in order to run code.
