IBM has issued security patches to fix high- and medium-severity bugs affecting large business software solutions.

The worst bugs could lead to malicious code execution and application crashes.

This week, the tech giant published a set of security tips laying out fixes for vulnerabilities that impact IBM Java Runtime, IBM Planning Analytics Workspace, and IBM Kenexa LMS On-Premise.

First CVE-2020-14782 and CVE-2020-27221 Advisory Address, two security errors in IBM Runtime Environment Java 7 and 8 used by IBM Integration Designer – business software used to integrate data and applications into existing business processes – on -suites in IBM’s Business Automation Workflow and Business Process Manager suites.

CVE-2020-14782 is a bug in Java SE library objects that can allow attackers to compromise Java SE with too many protocols, but this takes the sandbox environment, to begin with, and is therefore considered difficult to use.

CVE-2020-27221, however, is very worrying and is given a CVSS rating of 9.8, critical rating. This is risk of stack-based satellite overload is related to Eclipse OpenJ9 and can be used by remote attackers to create conflicting code or create application crashes.

The second part of advice focuses on IBM Planning Analytics Workspace, which is part of Planning Analytics, a partnership with a software planning company.

In total, five vulnerabilities affecting software have been resolved, including the Node.js HTTP smuggling problem (CVE-2020-8201), CVE-2020-8251 – a Node.js denial of service flaw – and a Node .js buffer overflow, CVE- 2020-8252, which can be exploited by attackers to execute arbitrary code.

Two other risks, data integrity vulnerabilities resulting from XML (XXE) external business attacks on FasterXML Jackson Databind (CVE-2020-25649), and CVE-2020-4953, a problem with Workspace that could allow remote – but not guaranteed – attackers to steal sensitive data from responses. -HTTP – also fought for.

IBM also sent security advice explaining the risks affecting IBM Kenexa LMS On-Premise, a business management system. In total, five low-impact bugs were incorporated, all related to the use of Java SE and could lead to problems including service denial and data theft that may occur in combination with other attack vectors.

Last week, IBM issued the safety notices of IBM Spectrum Symphony 7.3.1 and IBM Spectrum Conductor 2.5.0, and the development of third-party libraries affected by the high risk.
