Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-202107-69
==========================================

Severity: Medium
Date    : 2021-07-27
CVE-ID  : CVE-2021-32574 CVE-2021-36213
Package : consul
Type    : multiple issues
Remote  : Yes
Link    : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-2171

Summary
=======

The package consul before version 1.9.8-1 is vulnerable to multiple
issues including access restriction bypass and certificate verification
bypass.

Resolution
==========

Upgrade to 1.9.8-1.

# pacman -Syu "consul>=1.9.8-1"

The problems have been fixed upstream in version 1.9.8.

Workaround
==========

None.

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

- CVE-2021-32574 (certificate verification bypass)

HashiCorp Consul before version 1.9.8 does not validate SSL
certificates correctly: xds does not ensure that the Subject
Alternative Name of an upstream is validated.

- CVE-2021-36213 (access restriction bypass)

In HashiCorp Consul before version 1.9.8, xds can generate a situation
where a single L7 deny intention (with a default deny policy) results
in an allow action.

Impact
======

A single L7 deny intention could erroneously result in an allow action,
leading to access restriction bypass. Furthermore, a malicious upstream
could present an invalid certificate.
