Description Pedro Sampaio 2018-03-16 20:25:18 UTC
A flaw was found in Apache Commons Compress versions 1.11 to 1.15. A specially crafted ZIP archive can be used to cause an infinite loop inside of Apache Commons Compress' extra field parser used by the ZipFile and ZipArchiveInputStream classes in versions 1.11 to 1.15. This can be used to mount a denial of service attack against services that use Compress' zip package.

This issue affects the versions of lucene4 as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Satellite 6.0 and 6.1. Red Hat Satellite 6.2 and later do not include the lucene4 component and are not affected.

Comment 9 Jason Shepherd 2018-06-12 04:13:14 UTC
RHMAP has a dependency on commons-compress because it's required by log4j-core. Log4j-core only uses commons-compress for compression of log files, and doesn't provide any decompression functionality. Therefore log4j-core and RHMAP are not affected by this flaw.
