Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-09-26 10:04:04 UTC
A Polymorphic Typing issue was discovered in FasterXML jackson-databind before 2.9.10. It is related to com.zaxxer.hikari.HikariDataSource. This is a different vulnerability than CVE-2019-14540.


Comment 1 Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-09-26 10:04:30 UTC
Created jackson-databind tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1755832]

Comment 5 Doran Moppert 2019-10-10 03:40:26 UTC

This vulnerability relies on com.zaxxer.hikari.HikariDataSource being present in the application's ClassPath. Hikari is not packaged as an RPM for Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Red Hat Software Collections. Applications using jackson-databind that do not also use com.zaxxer.hikari are not impacted by this vulnerability.

A mitigation to this class of problem in jackson-databind is to not trigger polymorphic desrialization globally by using: objectMapper.enableDefaultTyping() and rather use @JsonTypeInfo on the class property to explicitly define the type information. For more information on this issue please refer to https://www.github.com/mbechler/marshalsec/blob/master/marshalsec.pdf?raw=true

Comment 8 Cedric Buissart 🐶 2019-10-10 11:16:18 UTC

Red Hat OpenStack Platform ships OpenDaylight, which contains the vulnerable jackson-databind. However, OpenDaylight does not expose jackson-databind in a way that would make it vulnerable, lowering the impact of the vulnerability for OpenDaylight. As such, Red Hat will not be providing a fix for OpenDaylight at this time.

Satellite 6 does not enable polymorphic unmarshmalling, which is a required configuration for the vulnerability to be used. We may update the jackson-databind dependency in a future release.

Comment 14 Paramvir jindal 2019-11-19 11:08:09 UTC
Marking RHSSO as affected fix because the fix version seems to be jackson-databind 2.9.10 and RHSSO 7.3.4 (latest as of today) ships jackson-databind-

Comment 20 Paramvir jindal 2019-12-17 09:20:47 UTC
JDG 7.3.4 ships jackson-databind- which seems to be affected hence creating tracker for it :
