|CVSS Meta Temp Score|
CVSS is a standardized scoring system to determine possibilities of attacks. The Temp Score considers temporal factors like disclosure, exploit and countermeasures. The unique Meta Score calculates the average score of different sources to provide a normalized scoring system.
|Current Exploit Price (≈)|
Our analysts are monitoring exploit markets and are in contact with vulnerability brokers. The range indicates the observed or calculated exploit price to be seen on exploit markets. A good indicator to understand the monetary effort required for and the popularity of an attack.
|CTI Interest Score|
Our Cyber Threat Intelligence team is monitoring different web sites, mailing lists, exploit markets and social media networks. The CTI Interest Score identifies the interest of attackers and the security community for this specific vulnerability in real-time. A high score indicates an elevated risk to be targeted for this vulnerability.
A vulnerability classified as critical has been found in Konloch Bytecode Viewer up to 2.10.x. This affects an unknown code of the component Archive Handler. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a directory traversal vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-22. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The summary by CVE is:
Bytecode Viewer (BCV) is a Java/Android reverse engineering suite. Versions of the package prior to 2.11.0 are vulnerable to Arbitrary File Write via Archive Extraction (AKA "Zip Slip"). The vulnerability is exploited using a specially crafted archive that holds directory traversal filenames (e.g. ../../evil.exe). The Zip Slip vulnerability can affect numerous archive formats, including zip, jar, tar, war, cpio, apk, rar and 7z. The attacker can then overwrite executable files and either invoke them remotely or wait for the system or user to call them, thus achieving remote command execution on the victimâ€™s machine. The impact of a Zip Slip vulnerability would allow an attacker to create or overwrite existing files on the filesystem. In the context of a web application, a web shell could be placed within the application directory to achieve code execution. All users should upgrade to BCV v2.11.0 when possible to receive a patch. There are no recommended workarounds aside from upgrading.
The weakness was published 01/13/2022 as GHSA-3wq9-j4fc-4wmc. It is possible to read the advisory at github.com. This vulnerability is uniquely identified as CVE-2022-21675 since 11/16/2021. The exploitability is told to be easy. It is possible to initiate the attack remotely. A authentication is needed for exploitation. The technical details are unknown and an exploit is not publicly available.
Upgrading to version 2.11.0 eliminates this vulnerability. The upgrade is hosted for download at github.com. Applying the patch 1ec02658fe6858162f5e6a24f97928de6696c5cb is able to eliminate this problem. The bugfix is ready for download at github.com. The best possible mitigation is suggested to be upgrading to the latest version.
