In future, please contact Product Security <secalert> before filing bugs or working on fixes for CVEs.

In this case, this fix was released to customers without Product Security's involvement which means that it was undocumented. There was no RHSA, no published scanning data, no CVE page entry. Undocumented security fixes are a High level exception under ProdSec policy:


I have linked the RHBA with this CVE as a bandaid solution, but we can't convert RHBAs to RHSAs after they have released.

For OpenShift, this document has info for working on CVE fixes:


A possible reason why there wasn't earlier OpenShift bugs for this CVE is likely that the OpenShift web console does not provide a manifest of its vendored JS dependencies to Product Security. Maintainers can provide manifests by following this doc:
