Description Laura Pardo 2018-05-15 22:13:03 UTC
A flaw was found in Spring Framework, versions 5.0.x prior to 5.0.6, versions 4.3.x prior to 4.3.17, and older unsupported versions allows applications to expose STOMP over WebSocket endpoints with a simple, in-memory STOMP broker through the spring-messaging module. A malicious user (or attacker) can craft a message to the broker that can lead to a regular expression, denial of service attack.


Comment 1 Laura Pardo 2018-05-15 22:14:34 UTC
Created springframework tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1578579]

Comment 5 Jason Shepherd 2018-05-21 07:21:15 UTC
RHMAP doesn't make sure of websocket stomp as described in https://docs.spring.io/spring/docs/current/spring-framework-reference/web.html#websocket-stomp-enable

Marking RHMAP as not affected.

Comment 6 James Hebden 2018-05-25 04:07:39 UTC
ODL does not use WebSocket STOMP in any packaged components for any RHOSP release. Marked not affected.

Comment 9 claprun@redhat.com 2018-06-01 08:43:35 UTC
Shouldn't this be marked as high as that's how it's marked by Pivotal on its CVE?
