Created nimbus-jose-jwt tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1764792]

Comment 3 Sandro Bonazzola 2019-10-24 09:56:27 UTC
Note: latest version is 8.2, compared to 5.12 a new dependency is needed:
[WARNING] The POM for com.google.crypto.tink:tink:jar:1.2.2 is missing, no dependency information available
I'll try to understand how difficult will be getting thie new dependency packaged.

Comment 5 Doran Moppert 2019-11-03 23:14:03 UTC

In Red Hat Virtualization 4.2, nimbus-jose-jwt was bundled in the rhvm-dependencies package. In Red Hat Virtualization 4.3, nimbus-jose-jwt was made available as a separate package and no longer bundled in rhvm-dependencies. Thus, rhvm-dependencies only contained this vulnerability in the 4.2 EUS stream, the 4.3 version of rhvm-dependencies is not affected.
