CVE-2018-12537 vertx: Improper neutralization of CRLF sequences allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTTP response headers
Last modified: 2018-10-08 17:25:07 EDT
Eclipse Vert.x before version 3.5.2 does not properly neutralize CR and LF characters in HTTP request before return responses. A remote attacker could exploit this to inject abritrary HTTP response headers to potentially mount cross-site scripting and cache poisoning attacks.
While the affected artifact is being shipped in Fuse 6.3 via camel-vertx component, the vulnerable code is not being used, therefore Fuse 6.3 is not affected.
This issue has been addressed in the following products:
