Description Chess Hazlett 2019-09-17 17:32:11 UTC
It was found that the Wildfly Security Manager, running under JDK 11 or 8, would authorize requests for any requester. This flaw could be used by a malicious app deployed on the app server to access unauthorized information and possibly conduct further attacks.

Hello, 

I have a short question:

Does this security flaw imply an attacker could break into the wildfly server, or does it mean that an attacker could break into the underlying linux system?
Is this lib secure to use, if you have it as a dependency only, but there is no wildfly running.

Thank you very much in advance!

Kind regards.

Comment 17 Chess Hazlett 2020-01-27 17:45:00 UTC
Mitigation:

This flaw only affects the Security Manager running under JDK 11 or 8. To mitigate exposure to this flaw, do not run under those JDK versions.
