Description of the vulnerability

The Diffie-Hellman algorithm is used to exchange cryptographic keys. The DHE_EXPORT suite uses prime numbers smaller than 512 bits.

The Diffie-Hellman algorithm is used by TLS. However, during the negotiation, an attacker, located as a Man-in-the-Middle, can force TLS to use DHE_EXPORT (event if stronger suites are available).

This vulnerability can then be combined with VIGILANCE-VUL-16951.

An attacker, located as a Man-in-the-Middle, can therefore force the TLS client/server to accept a weak export algorithm, in order to more easily capture or alter exchanged data.

vulnerability note CVE-2014-3490

JBoss RESTEasy: external XML entity injection

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can transmit malicious XML data to JBoss RESTEasy, in order to read a file, scan sites, or trigger a denial of service.
Impacted products: Fedora, RESTEasy JBoss OpenSource, Oracle Communications, RHEL, JBoss EAP by Red Hat.
Severity: 2/4.
Consequences: data reading, denial of service on service.
Provenance: document.
Creation date: 27/04/2015.
Identifiers: 1107901, cpuoct2018, CVE-2014-3490, FEDORA-2014-16845, RHSA-2014:1011-01, RHSA-2014:1039-01, RHSA-2014:1040-01, RHSA-2014:1298-01, RHSA-2014:1904-01, RHSA-2015:0125-01, RHSA-2015:0234-01, RHSA-2015:0235-01, RHSA-2015:0675-01, RHSA-2015:0720-01, RHSA-2015:0765-01, RHSA-2015:1009, VIGILANCE-VUL-16714.

Description of the vulnerability

XML data can contain external entities (DTD):
  <!ENTITY name SYSTEM "file">
  <!ENTITY name SYSTEM "http://server/file">
A program which reads these XML data can replace these entities by data coming from the indicated file. When the program uses XML data coming from an untrusted source, this behavior leads to:
 - content disclosure from files of the server
 - private web site scan
 - a denial of service by opening a blocking file
This feature must be disabled to process XML data coming from an untrusted source.

However, the JBoss RESTEasy parser allows external entities.

An attacker can therefore transmit malicious XML data to JBoss RESTEasy, in order to read a file, scan sites, or trigger a denial of service.

vulnerability CVE-2014-0230

Apache Tomcat: denial of service via SwallowSize

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can upload an invalid file on Apache Tomcat, to consume a large amount of memory, in order to trigger a denial of service.
Impacted products: Tomcat, Debian, BIG-IP Hardware, TMOS, HP-UX, Oracle Communications, Solaris, RealPresence Collaboration Server, RealPresence Resource Manager, JBoss EAP by Red Hat, Ubuntu.
Severity: 2/4.
Consequences: denial of service on server, denial of service on service, denial of service on client.
Provenance: internet client.
Creation date: 10/04/2015.
Identifiers: bulletinoct2015, c05054964, CERTFR-2015-AVI-204, cpujul2018, CVE-2014-0230, DSA-3530-1, HPSBUX03561, RHSA-2015:1621-01, RHSA-2015:1622-01, RHSA-2015:2659-01, RHSA-2015:2660-01, RHSA-2015:2661-01, RHSA-2016:0595-01, RHSA-2016:0596-01, RHSA-2016:0597-01, RHSA-2016:0599-01, SOL17123, USN-2654-1, USN-2655-1, VIGILANCE-VUL-16570.

Description of the vulnerability

The Apache Tomcat product offers a web service, which can accept the file upload feature.

However, when the tomcat server expects to refuse an upload, it still accepts to read the received file without a memory limit.

An attacker can therefore upload an invalid file on Apache Tomcat, to consume a large amount of memory, in order to trigger a denial of service.

Description of the vulnerability

An SSL/TLS session can be established using several protocols:
 - SSL 2.0 (obsolete)
 - SSL 3.0
 - TLS 1.0
 - TLS 1.1
 - TLS 1.2

An attacker can downgrade the version to SSLv3. However, with SSL 3.0, an attacker can change the padding position with a CBC encryption, in order to progressively guess clear text fragments.

This vulnerability is named POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption).

An attacker, located as a Man-in-the-Middle, can therefore decrypt a SSL 3.0 session, in order to obtain sensitive information.

Hibernate Validator: privilege escalation via ReflectionHelper

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can use ReflectionHelper of Hibernate Validator, in order to escalate his privileges.
Impacted products: RHEL, JBoss EAP by Red Hat, Unix (platform) ~ not comprehensive.
Severity: 2/4.
Consequences: privileged access/rights, user access/rights.
Provenance: user account.
Creation date: 24/09/2014.
Identifiers: CVE-2014-3558, RHSA-2014:1285-01, RHSA-2014:1286-01, RHSA-2014:1287-01, RHSA-2014:1288-01, RHSA-2015:0125-01, RHSA-2015:0234-01, RHSA-2015:0235-01, RHSA-2015:0720-01, VIGILANCE-VUL-15393.

Description of the vulnerability

The Hibernate Validator product is used to define constraints on an application.

However, a deployed application can use Org.hibernate.validator.util.ReflectionHelper to access to other applications in the container.

An attacker can therefore use ReflectionHelper of Hibernate Validator, in order to escalate his privileges.
