Security Bulletin: Vulnerability affects Watson Explorer Foundational
Components (CVE-2017-3737, CVE-2017-3738)

Security Bulletin

Document information
Software version: 8.2.0, 9.0.0, 11.0.0, 11.0.1, 11.0.2
Operating system(s): Linux, Windows
Reference #: 2017502
Modified date: 22 June 2018

Summary

Security vulnerabilities affect IBM Watson Explorer Foundational Components.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2017-3738
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive
information, caused by an overflow bug in the AVX2 Montgomery multiplication
procedure used in exponentiation with 1024-bit moduli. An attacker could
exploit this vulnerability to obtain information about the private key. Note:
In order to exploit this vulnerability, the server would have to share the
DH1024 private key among multiple clients, which is no longer an option since
CVE-2016-0701.
CVSS Base Score: 3.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
136078 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2017-3737
DESCRIPTION: An unspecified vulnerability in multiple Oracle products could
allow an unauthenticated attacker to cause low confidentiality impact, low
integrity impact, and high availability impact.
CVSS Base Score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
136077 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N)
