Description Patrick Del Bello 2024-05-02 12:25:37 UTC
A vulnerability was found in Wildlfly management interface where there is no sockets limits to perform connections to http management interface. This may lead occasionally to a Denial of Service (DoS) for Wildfly server after nofile limit reaches its maximum. This requires normally local access as the management interface is not exposed by default and it is not a common configuration to make it public.
