USN-2694-1 PCRE Vulnerabilities
- Ubuntu 14.04
Michele Spagnuolo discovered that PCRE incorrectly handled certain regular expressions. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause applications using PCRE to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
The Cloud Foundry project released a BOSH stemcell version 3030 and a cflinuxfs2 rootfs stack that have the patched version of OpenSSH.
Pivotal is releasing an updated version of Pivotal Cloud Foundry Suite which references this patched BOSH stemcell and patched rootfs stack.
Affected VMware Products and Versions
Severity is medium unless otherwise noted.
- All versions of Cloud Foundry BOSH stemcells prior to 3030 have versions of OpenSSH vulnerable to USN-2698-1
- All versions of Cloud Foundry cflinuxfs2 prior to 1.2.0 have versions of OpenSSH vulnerable to USN-2698-1
- Pivotal Cloud Foundry Elastic Runtime pre-1.5.4 versions, Pivotal Ops Manager pre-1.5.5 versions, Pivotal Redis pre-1.4.8 versions, Pivotal GemFire SSC pre-1.0.2 versions, Pivotal RabbitMQ pre-1.4.4 versions, Pivotal Ops Metrics pre-1.4.2 versions, and Pivotal MySQL pre-1.6.2 versions.
Users of affected versions should apply the following mitigation:
- The Cloud Foundry project recommends that Cloud Foundry deployments run with BOSH stemcells 3030 or later versions, and cflinuxfs2 version 1.2.0 or later versions.
- Pivotal recommends that customers upgrade to the 1.5.4 or later versions of Pivotal Cloud Foundry Elastic Runtime, 1.5.4 or later versions of Pivotal Ops Manager, 1.0.2 or later versions of Pivotal GemFire SSC, 1.4.8 or later versions of Pivotal Redis, 1.4.4 or later versions of RabbitMQ, 1.4.2 or later versions of Pivotal Ops Metrics, and 1.6.2 or later versions of Pivotal MySQL.
