Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-202107-23
==========================================

Severity: High
Date    : 2021-07-14
CVE-ID  : CVE-2021-31810 CVE-2021-32066
Package : ruby
Type    : multiple issues
Remote  : Yes
Link    : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-2138

Summary
=======

The package ruby before version 3.0.2-1 is vulnerable to multiple
issues including silent downgrade and information disclosure.

Resolution
==========

Upgrade to 3.0.2-1.

# pacman -Syu "ruby>=3.0.2-1"

The problems have been fixed upstream in version 3.0.2.

Workaround
==========

None.

Description
===========

- CVE-2021-31810 (information disclosure)

A security issue has been discovered in Ruby before versions 3.0.2,
2.7.4 and 2.6.8. A malicious FTP server can use the PASV response to
trick Net::FTP into connecting back to a given IP address and port.
This potentially makes Net::FTP extract information about services that
are otherwise private and not disclosed (e.g., the attacker can conduct
port scans and service banner extractions).

- CVE-2021-32066 (silent downgrade)

A security issue has been discovered in Ruby before versions 3.0.2,
2.7.4 and 2.6.8. Net::IMAP does not raise an exception when StartTLS
fails with an unknown response, which might allow man-in-the-middle
attackers to bypass the TLS protections by leveraging a network
position between the client and the registry to block the StartTLS
command, aka a “StartTLS stripping attack”.

Impact
======

A remote man-in-the-middle attacker could strip StartTLS encryption
from IMAP connections to disclose authentication credentials and
emails. Furthermore, a malicious FTP server could induce connections to
an arbitrary IP address and port on a client, leading to potential
information disclosure.
