This table represents the known exploitable and non-exploitable vulnerabilities in third party packages used in the project.

High-level mitigation plan:

Regarding known issues like “DOS, Remote Code Execution (RCE), CORS attack, HTTP request smuggling”, the Portal’s code is not exposing these vulnerabilities directly due to many layers of encapsulation by APIs, so these are most likely false positives reported by NexusIQ scan, however to be on safe side the mitigation plan is to deploy Portal platform in a secure environment e.g. in private network inside the company firewall.

RepositoryGroupImpact AnalysisAction
portal

com.fasterxml.jackson.core

False positive.

Analysis: This vulnerability is not exposed from the portal’s code, because

  1. The portal does not pass any untrusted data for deserialization, as there is XSS/XSRF validation enabled in the portal’s backend code.
  2. and the default typing (ObjectMapper.setDefaultTyping()) is not called as we use concrete java types.
  3. and we use Spring Security 4.2.3 as recommended in the nexus-iq report.


Spring version 4.2.3 will take care of this.

Comments from Nexus-IQ: Spring Security has provided their own fix for this vulnerability (CVE-2017-4995). If this component is being used as part of Spring Security, then you are not vulnerable if you are running Spring Security 4.2.3.RELEASE or greater for 4.x or Spring Security 5.0.0.M2 or greater for 5.x.


Not vulnerable in ONAP

portalmoments

All available versions of moment.js are vulnerable. Upgrade is not an option.

Analysis: Not vulnerable as all our date fields are reformatted and validated before being submitted. See below

CVE 185 information: The moment package is vulnerable to Regular Expression Denial of Service (ReDoS). The monthsShortRegex(),monthsRegex(),weekdaysRegex(),weekdaysShortRegex(), and weekdaysMinRegex() functions in the moment.js, moment-with-locales.js, and regex.js files use a vulnerable regular expression while parsing the date input. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by crafting a date input containing a very long sequence of repetitive characters which, when parsed, consumes available CPU resources and results in Denial Of Service.


Not vulnerable in ONAP
portal, portal-sdkangular

Analysis: Cannot upgrade angular as this will require changes on all the Portal pages.

From our analysis the vulnerability cannot be exploited because the portal application follows the below design recommendations provided by nexus-iq report.

Recommendation by nexus-iq for this vulnerability (SONATYPE-2016-0064): 

It's best to design your application in such a way that users cannot change client-side templates.

  • Do not mix client and server templates
  • Do not use user input to generate templates dynamically
  • Do not run user input through $scope.$eval (or any of the other expression parsing functions listed above)
  • Consider using {@link ng.directive:ngCsp CSP} (but don't rely only on CSP)

Not vulnerable in ONAP


portalcommons-beanutils

All available versions of common-beanutils are vulnerable. Upgrade is not an option.

Analysis: The portal code do not use classloader so it is not vulnerable in ONAP.

CVE CWE: 20
Description from CVE
Apache Commons BeanUtils, as distributed in lib/commons-beanutils-1.8.0.jar in Apache Struts 1.x through 1.3.10 and in other products requiring commons-beanutils through 1.9.2, does not suppress the class property, which allows remote attackers to "manipulate" the ClassLoader and execute arbitrary code via the class parameter, as demonstrated by the passing of this parameter to the getClass method of the ActionForm object in Struts 1.

Not vulnerable in ONAP
portal-sdkorg.apache.poi

Analysis: Not vulnerable as we do not use POI to read documents. We use only to generate XLS from our own data.

CVE CWE:399:

Apache POI in versions prior to release 3.17 are vulnerable to Denial of Service Attacks: 1) Infinite Loops while parsing crafted WMF, EMF, MSG and macros (POI bugs 61338 and 61294), and 2) Out of Memory Exceptions while parsing crafted DOC, PPT and XLS (POI bugs 52372 and 61295).
