Article contents: Vulnerability Description
This Security Bulletin contains details of vulnerabilities discovered in the ESM code base and in third-party libraries.

They range in severity from medium to high and McAfee recommends that you update to the latest versions. Most ESM instances have access restricted to local (internal) networks. To exploit these issues, attackers would first need to gain access to the network.

Third-party libraries:
  1. CVE-2015-7704
    The ntpd client in NTP 4.x before 4.2.8p4 and 4.3.x before 4.3.77 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a number of crafted "KOD" messages.
    https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2015-7704
     
  2. CVE-2016-10708
    sshd in OpenSSH before 7.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via an out-of-sequence NEWKEYS message, as demonstrated by Honggfuzz, related to kex.c and packet.c.
    https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2016-10708
     
  3. CVE-2018-10858
    A heap-buffer overflow was found in the way samba clients processed extra long filename in a directory listing. A malicious samba server could use this flaw to cause arbitrary code execution on a samba client. Samba versions before 4.6.16, 4.7.9 and 4.8.4 are vulnerable.
    https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2018-10858
     
  4. CVE-2018-18258
    The xz_head function in xzlib.c in libxml2 before 2.9.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted LZMA file, because the decoder functionality does not restrict memory usage to what is required for a legitimate file.
    https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2017-18258
     
  5. CVE-2018-11784
    When the default servlet in Apache Tomcat versions 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.11, 8.5.0 to 8.5.33, and 7.0.23 to 7.0.90 returned a redirect to a directory (for example, redirecting to '/foo/' when the user requested '/foo') a specially crafted URL could be used to cause the redirect to be generated to any URI of the attackers choice.
    https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2018-11784
ESM code base:
  1. CVE-2019-3628
    Privilege escalation in McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) 11.x earlier than 11.2.0 allows authenticated user to gain access to a core system component via incorrect access control.
    https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2019-3628
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-3628
     
  2. CVE-2019-3629

    https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2019-3629
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-3629
     
  3. CVE-2019-3630
    Command Injection vulnerability in McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) earlier than 11.2.0 and earlier than 10.4.0 allows authenticated user to execute arbitrary code via specially crafter parameters.

    https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2019-3631  
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-3631
     
  5. CVE-2019-3632

  2. Click the About link. The product version displays.
What is CVSS?
CVSS, or Common Vulnerability Scoring System, is the result of the National Infrastructure Advisory Council's effort to standardize a system of assessing the criticality of a vulnerability. This system offers an unbiased criticality score between 0 and 10 that customers can use to judge how critical a vulnerability is and plan accordingly. For more information, visit the CVSS website at: http://www.first.org/cvss/.
 
When calculating CVSS scores, McAfee has adopted a philosophy that fosters consistency and repeatability. Our guiding principle for CVSS scoring is to score the exploit under consideration by itself. We consider only the immediate and direct impact of the exploit under consideration. We do not factor into a score any potential follow-on exploits that might be made possible by the successful exploitation of the issue being scored.

Where can I find a list of all Security Bulletins?
All Security Bulletins are published on our external PSIRT website at http://www.mcafee.com/us/threat-center/product-security-bulletins.aspx > Security Bulletins. Security Bulletins are retired (removed) once a product is both End of Sale and End of Support (End of Life).
 
How do I report a product vulnerability to McAfee?
If you have information about a security issue or vulnerability with a McAfee product, visit the McAfee PSIRT website for instructions at http://www.mcafee.com/us/threat-center/product-security-bulletins.aspx > Report a Security Vulnerability.
 
How does McAfee respond to this and any other reported security flaws?
Our key priority is the security of our customers. If a vulnerability is found within any of McAfee software or services, we work closely with the relevant security software development team to ensure the rapid and effective development of a fix and communication plan.
 
McAfee only publishes Security Bulletins if they include something actionable such as a workaround, mitigation, version update, or hotfix. Otherwise, we would simply be informing the hacker community that our products are a target, putting our customers at greater risk. For products that are updated automatically, a non-actionable Security Bulletin might be published to acknowledge the discoverer.
