ALAS-2019-1230


Amazon Linux AMI Security Advisory: ALAS-2019-1230
Advisory Release Date: 2019-06-28 21:17 Pacific
Severity: Medium

Issue Overview:

Python 2.7.x through 2.7.16 is affected by: Improper Handling of Unicode Encoding (with an incorrect netloc) during NFKC normalization. The impact is: Information disclosure (credentials, cookies, etc. that are cached against a given hostname). The components are: urllib.parse.urlsplit, urllib.parse.urlparse. The attack vector is: A specially crafted URL could be incorrectly parsed to locate cookies or authentication data and send that information to a different host than when parsed correctly. (CVE-2019-9636 ).

An issue was discovered in urllib2 in Python 2.x through 2.7.16. CRLF injection is possible if the attacker controls a url parameter, as demonstrated by the first argument to urllib.request.urlopen with \r\n (specifically in the query string after a ? character) followed by an HTTP header or a Redis command. (CVE-2019-9740 )


An issue was discovered in urllib2 in Python 2.x through 2.7.16 . CRLF injection is possible if the attacker controls a url parameter, as demonstrated by the first argument to urllib.request.urlopen with \r\n (specifically in the path component of a URL that lacks a ? character) followed by an HTTP header or a Redis command. This is similar to the CVE-2019-9740 query string issue. (CVE-2019-9947 )
