Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can use the "class" parameter, to manipulate the ClassLoader, in order to execute code.
Impacted products: Struts, Debian, BIG-IP Hardware, TMOS, Fedora, SiteScope, IRAD, Tivoli Storage Manager, Tivoli System Automation, WebSphere AS Traditional, IBM WebSphere ESB, Oracle Communications, Oracle Directory Server, Oracle Directory Services Plus, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle GlassFish Server, Oracle Identity Management, Oracle iPlanet Web Server, Oracle OIT, Tuxedo, Oracle Virtual Directory, WebLogic, Oracle Web Tier, Puppet, RHEL, RSA Authentication Manager, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, SLES, Unix (platform) ~ not comprehensive, vCenter Server, VMware vSphere.
Severity: 3/4.
Consequences: privileged access/rights, user access/rights.
Provenance: internet client.
Creation date: 26/05/2014.
Identifiers: 1672316, 1673982, 1674339, 1675822, 2016214, c04399728, c05324755, CERTFR-2014-AVI-382, cpuapr2017, cpujan2018, cpujan2019, cpuoct2017, cpuoct2018, CVE-2014-0114, DSA-2940-1, ESA-2014-080, FEDORA-2014-9380, HPSBGN03669, HPSBMU03090, ibm10719287, ibm10719297, ibm10719301, ibm10719303, ibm10719307, MDVSA-2014:095, RHSA-2014:0474-01, RHSA-2014:0497-01, RHSA-2014:0500-01, RHSA-2014:0511-01, RHSA-2018:2669-01, SOL15282, SUSE-SU-2014:0902-1, swg22017525, VIGILANCE-VUL-14799, VMSA-2014-0008, VMSA-2014-0008.1, VMSA-2014-0008.2, VMSA-2014-0012.

Description of the vulnerability

The Apache Struts product is used to develop Java EE applications.

However, the "class" parameter is mapped to getClass(), and can be used to manipulate the ClassLoader.

An attacker can therefore use the "class" parameter, to manipulate the ClassLoader, in order to execute code.

Apache HttpClient 3: incomplete certificate validation

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can use any valid certificate on a malicious server, and then invite an Apache HttpClient 3 to connect there, in order to spy communications even if encryption is used.
Impacted products: Apache HttpClient, Fedora, Tivoli System Automation, WebSphere AS Traditional, IBM WebSphere ESB, openSUSE, RHEL, JBoss EAP by Red Hat, Ubuntu.
Severity: 2/4.
Consequences: data reading.
Provenance: internet server.
Creation date: 23/11/2012.
Identifiers: 2016216, BID-58073, CVE-2012-5783, FEDORA-2013-1189, FEDORA-2013-1203, FEDORA-2013-1289, HTTPCLIENT-1265, ibm10719287, ibm10719297, ibm10719301, ibm10719303, ibm10719307, openSUSE-SU-2013:0354-1, openSUSE-SU-2013:0622-1, openSUSE-SU-2013:0623-1, openSUSE-SU-2013:0638-1, RHSA-2013:0270-01, RHSA-2013:0679-01, RHSA-2013:0680-01, RHSA-2013:0681-01, RHSA-2013:0682-01, RHSA-2013:0763-01, RHSA-2013:1006-01, RHSA-2013:1147-01, RHSA-2013:1853-01, RHSA-2014:0224-01, RHSA-2017:0868-01, swg22017526, USN-2769-1, VIGILANCE-VUL-12182.

Description of the vulnerability

The HttpClient library can manage HTTP connections over SSL.

In order to authenticate a server, the client must check the certificate (cryptographic signatures, validity date range, etc.) and also that the received certificate matches the visited server. This check is usually done on DNS names, or sometimes on IP addresses. However, HttpClient does not check that the names included in the certificates match the one requested at HTTP level. So, any valid certificate is accepted.

An attacker can therefore use any valid certificate on a malicious server, and then invite an Apache HttpClient 3 to connect there, in order to spy communications even if encryption is used.
