-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 =========================================================================== AUSCERT External Security Bulletin Redistribution ESB-2015.2366 gsol17238: Node.js vulnerability CVE-2015-5380 9 September 2015 =========================================================================== AusCERT Security Bulletin Summary --------------------------------- Product: F5 products Publisher: F5 Networks Operating System: Network Appliance Impact/Access: Denial of Service -- Remote/Unauthenticated Resolution: Patch/Upgrade CVE Names: CVE-2015-5380 Original Bulletin: https://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/solutions/public/17000/200/sol17238.html - --------------------------BEGIN INCLUDED TEXT-------------------- gsol17238: Node.js vulnerability CVE-2015-5380 Security Advisory Original Publication Date: 09/08/2015 Description The Utf8DecoderBase::WriteUtf16Slow function in unicode-decoder.cc in Google V8, as used in Node.js before 0.12.6, io.js before 1.8.3 and 2.x before 2.3.3, and other products, does not verify that there is memory available for a UTF-16 surrogate pair, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted byte sequence. (CVE-2015-5380) Impact For the f5-rest-node package on both the BIG-IP and BIG-IQ systems: A locally authenticated attacker with access to the command line may be able to cause a partial denial-of-service (DoS) to the system through exploitation of this issue. For the BIG-IQ UI node package: A remote attacker may be able to cause a denial of service (DoS) to the system through exploitation of this issue. Status F5 Product Development has assigned ID 534090 and ID 534358 (BIG-IP), ID 537658 (BIG-IQ), and LRS-59013 (LineRate) to this vulnerability, and has evaluated the currently supported releases for potential vulnerability. To determine if your release is known to be vulnerable, the components or features that are affected by the vulnerability, and for information about releases or hotfixes that address the vulnerability, refer to the following table: Product Versions known to be vulnerable Versions known to be not vulnerable Severity Vulnerable component or feature BIG-IP LTM 12.0.0 11.0.0 - 11.5.0 Low f5-rest-node package 11.5.0 - 11.6.0 10.1.0 - 10.2.4 BIG-IP AAM 12.0.0 11.4.0 - 11.4.1 Low f5-rest-node package 11.5.0 - 11.6.0 BIG-IP AFM 12.0.0 11.3.0 - 11.4.1 Low f5-rest-node package 11.5.0 - 11.6.0 BIG-IP 12.0.0 11.0.0 - 11.4.1 Low f5-rest-node package Analytics 11.5.0 - 11.6.0 BIG-IP APM 12.0.0 11.0.0 - 11.4.1 Low f5-rest-node package 11.5.0 - 11.6.0 10.1.0 - 10.2.4 BIG-IP ASM 12.0.0 11.0.0 - 11.4.1 Low f5-rest-node package 11.5.0 - 11.6.0 10.1.0 - 10.2.4 BIG-IP DNS 12.0.0 None Low f5-rest-node package BIG-IP Edge None 11.0.0 - 11.3.0 Not vulnerable None Gateway 10.1.0 - 10.2.4 BIG-IP GTM 11.5.0 - 11.6.0 10.1.0 - 10.2.4 Low f5-rest-node package 11.0.0 - 11.4.1 BIG-IP Link 12.0.0 11.0.0 - 11.4.1 Low f5-rest-node package Controller 11.5.0 - 11.6.0 10.1.0 - 10.2.4 BIG-IP PEM 11.5.0 - 11.6.0 11.3.0 - 11.4.1 Low f5-rest-node package BIG-IP PSM None 11.0.0 - 11.4.1 Not vulnerable None 10.1.0 - 10.2.4 BIG-IP None 11.0.0 - 11.3.0 Not vulnerable None WebAccelerator 10.1.0 - 10.2.4 BIG-IP WOM None 11.0.0 - 11.3.0 Not vulnerable None 10.1.0 - 10.2.4 ARX None 6.0.0 - 6.4.0 Not vulnerable None Enterprise None 3.0.0 - 3.1.1 Not vulnerable None Manager FirePass None 7.0.0 Not vulnerable None 6.0.0 - 6.1.0 BIG-IQ Cloud 4.0.0 - 4.5.0 None High BIG-IQ UI node package f5-rest-node package BIG-IQ Device 4.2.0 - 4.5.0 None High BIG-IQ UI node package f5-rest-node package BIG-IQ Security 4.0.0 - 4.5.0 None High BIG-IQ UI node package f5-rest-node package BIG-IQ ADC 4.5.0 None High BIG-IQ UI node package f5-rest-node package LineRate 2.5.0 - 2.6.1 None Medium v8, node.js, io.js F5 WebSafe None 1.0.0 Not vulnerable None Traffix SDC None 4.0.0 - 4.4.0 Not vulnerable None 3.3.2 - 3.5.1 Note: As of February 17, 2015, AskF5 Security Advisory articles include the Severity value. Security Advisory articles published before this date do not list a Severity value. Recommended Action If the previous table lists a version in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to the listed version. If the listed version is older than the version you are currently running, or if the table does not list any version in the column, then no upgrade candidate currently exists. F5 responds to vulnerabilities in accordance with the Severity values published in the previous table. The Severity values and other security vulnerability parameters are defined in SOL4602: Overview of the F5 security vulnerability response policy. There is no mitigation for this vulnerability. However, F5 recommends that you permit management access to affected F5 products only over a secure network, and limit shell access to trusted users. For more information about securing access to BIG-IP systems, refer to SOL13309: Restricting access to the Configuration utility by source IP address (11.x) and SOL13092: Overview of securing access to the BIG-IP system.
