IBM Security Information Queue uses database components with known
vulnerabilities (CVE-2016-3506, CVE-2018-1058, CVE-2018-10936, CVE-2019-9193)

Security Bulletin


IBM Security Information Queue (ISIQ) relies on older Oracle JDBC and
PostgreSQL JAR files that have known vulnerabilities. As of v1.0.5, ISIQ
switched to newer, secure versions of the JAR files.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2016-3506
DESCRIPTION: Unspecified vulnerability in the JDBC component in Oracle Database
Server,, and; the Oracle Retail Xstore Point of
Service 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.1, 15.0, and 16.0; the Oracle Retail Warehouse
Management System 14.04, 14.1.3, and 15.0.1; the Oracle Retail Workforce
Management 1.60.7, and 1.64.0; the Oracle Retail Clearance Optimization Engine
13.4; the Oracle Retail Markdown Optimization 13.4 and 14.0; and Oracle Retail
Merchandising System 16.0 allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality,
integrity, and availability via unknown vectors.
CVSS Base score: 8.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
115131 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2018-1058
DESCRIPTION: A flaw was found in the way Postgresql allowed a user to modify
the behavior of a query for other users. An attacker with a user account could
use this flaw to execute code with the permissions of superuser in the
database. Versions 9.3 through 10 are affected.
CVSS Base score: 6.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
139844 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2018-10936
DESCRIPTION: A weakness was found in postgresql-jdbc before version 42.2.5. It
was possible to provide an SSL Factory and not check the host name if a host
name verifier was not provided to the driver. This could lead to a condition
where a man-in-the-middle attacker could masquerade as a trusted server by
providing a certificate for the wrong host, as long as it was signed by a
trusted CA.
CVSS Base score: 5.9
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
149157 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:L/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2019-9193
DESCRIPTION: ** DISPUTED ** In PostgreSQL 9.3 through 11.2, the "COPY TO/FROM
PROGRAM" function allows superusers and users in the
'pg_execute_server_program' group to execute arbitrary code in the context of
the database's operating system user. This functionality is enabled by default
and can be abused to run arbitrary operating system commands on Windows, Linux,
and macOS. NOTE: Third parties claim/state this is not an issue because
PostgreSQL functionality for COPY TO/FROM PROGRAM is acting as intended.
References state that in PostgreSQL, a superuser can execute commands as the
server user without using the COPY FROM PROGRAM.
CVSS Base score: 7.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
159212 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)
