The following components are affected:

  • FTL Server (tibftlserver)
  • Docker images containing tibftlserver

Description

The components listed above contain a vulnerability that theoretically allows a non-administrative, authenticated FTL user to trick the affected components into creating illegitimate certificates. These maliciously generated certificates can be used to enable man-in-the-middle attacks or to escalate privileges so that the malicious user has administrative privileges.

Impact

The impact of this vulnerability includes the theoretical possibility that a malicious non-administrative user can gain full administrative access to the affected system.

CVSS v3 Base Score: 7.5 (CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)
