Debian DLA-3176-1 : clickhouse - LTS security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 167202

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The remote Debian 10 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dla-3176 advisory.

- Heap out-of-bounds read in Clickhouse's LZ4 compression codec when parsing a malicious query. As part of the LZ4::decompressImpl() loop, a 16-bit unsigned user-supplied value ('offset') is read from the compressed data. The offset is later used in the length of a copy operation, without checking the upper bounds of the source of the copy operation. (CVE-2021-42387)

- Heap buffer overflow in Clickhouse's LZ4 compression codec when parsing a malicious query. There is no verification that the copy operations in the LZ4::decompressImpl loop and especially the arbitrary copy operation wildCopy<copy_amount>(op, ip, copy_end), don't exceed the destination buffer's limits.
(CVE-2021-43304)

- Heap buffer overflow in Clickhouse's LZ4 compression codec when parsing a malicious query. There is no verification that the copy operations in the LZ4::decompressImpl loop and especially the arbitrary copy operation wildCopy<copy_amount>(op, ip, copy_end), don't exceed the destination buffer's limits. This issue is very similar to CVE-2021-43304, but the vulnerable copy operation is in a different wildCopy call. (CVE-2021-43305)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade the clickhouse packages.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version 18.16.1+ds-4+deb10u1.
