Description

Description Severity Notes

Certain Google Cloud load balancers routing to an Identity-Aware Proxy (IAP) enabled Backend Service could have been vulnerable to an untrusted party under limited conditions. This addresses an issue reported through our Vulnerability Reward Program.

The conditions were that the servers:
  • Were HTTP(S) load balancers and
  • Used a default backend or a backend that had a wildcard host mapping rule (that is, host="*")

In addition, a user in your organization must have clicked a specifically-crafted link sent by an untrusted party.

This issue has now been resolved. IAP has been updated to issue cookies only to authorized hosts as of September 17, 2021. A host is considered authorized if it matches at least one Subject Alternative Name (SAN) in one of the certificates installed on your load balancers.

What to do

Some of your users may experience an HTTP 401 Unauthorized response with an IAP error code 52 while trying to access apps or services. This error code means that the client sent a Host header which does not match any Subject Alternative Names associated with the load balancer's SSL certificate(s). The load balancer administrator needs to update the SSL certificate to ensure that the Subject Alternative Name (SAN) list contains all the hostnames through which users are accessing the IAP-protected apps or services. Learn more about IAP error codes.

The following Envoy and Istio CVEs expose Anthos Service Mesh and Istio on GKE to remotely exploitable vulnerabilities:

  • CVE-2021-39156: HTTP requests with a fragment (a section in the end of a URI that begins with a # character) in the URI path could bypass Istio's URI path-based authorization policies.
  • CVE-2021-39155: HTTP requests could potentially bypass an Istio authorization policy when using rules based on hosts or notHosts.
  • CVE-2021-32781: Affects Envoy's decompressor, json-transcoder, or grpc-web extensions or proprietary extensions that modify and increase the size of request or response bodies. Modifying and increasing the size of the body in an Envoy's extension beyond the internal buffer size could lead to Envoy accessing deallocated memory and terminating abnormally.
  • CVE-2021-32780: An untrusted upstream service could cause Envoy to terminate abnormally by sending the GOAWAY frame followed by the SETTINGS frame with the SETTINGS_MAX_CONCURRENT_STREAMS parameter set to 0. (Not applicable to Istio on GKE)
  • CVE-2021-32778: An Envoy client opening and then resetting a large number of HTTP/2 requests could lead to excessive CPU consumption. (Not applicable to Istio on GKE)
  • CVE-2021-32777: HTTP requests with multiple value headers could do an incomplete authorization policy check when the ext_authz extension is used.

For instructions and more details, see the:

High

CVE-2021-31920

GCP-2021-005

Published: 2021-05-11

Description

Description Severity Notes

A reported vulnerability has shown that Envoy does not decode escaped slash sequences %2F and %5C in HTTP URL paths in Envoy versions 1.18.2 and earlier. In addition, some Envoy-based products do not enable path normalization controls. A remote attacker may craft a path with escaped slashes (for example, /something%2F..%2Fadmin,), to bypass access control (for example, a block on /admin). A backend server could then decode slash sequences and normalize the path to provide an attacker access beyond the scope provided for by the access control policy.

What should I do?

If backend servers treat / and %2F or \ and %5C interchangeably and a URL path based matching is configured, we recommend reconfiguring the backend server to not treat \ and %2F or \ and %5C interchangeably, if feasible.

What behavioral changes were introduced?

Envoy's normalize_path and merge adjacent slashes options were enabled to address other common path confusion vulnerabilities in Envoy-based products.

CVE-2021-29492

GCP-2021-004

Published: 2021-05-06

Description

Description Severity Notes

The Envoy and Istio projects recently announced several new security vulnerabilities (CVE-2021-28683, CVE-2021-28682 and CVE-2021-29258), that could allow an attacker to crash Envoy.

Google Kubernetes Engine clusters do not run Istio by default and are not vulnerable. If Istio has been installed in a cluster and configured to expose services to the internet, those services may be vulnerable to denial of service.

Anthos on bare metal and Anthos clusters on VMware use Envoy by default for Ingress, so Ingress services may be vulnerable to denial of service.

Description Severity Notes

A privilege escalation vulnerability, CVE-2020-8559, was recently discovered in Kubernetes. This vulnerability allows an attacker that has already compromised a node to execute a command in any Pod in the cluster. The attacker can thereby use the already compromised node to compromise other nodes and potentially read information, or cause destructive actions.
