Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-05-04 13:29:38 UTC
All versions of package path-parse are vulnerable to Regular Expression Denial of Service (ReDoS) via splitDeviceRe, splitTailRe, and splitPathRe regular expressions. ReDoS exhibits polynomial worst-case time complexity.


Comment 1 Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-05-04 13:30:55 UTC
Created nodejs-path-parse tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1956819]

Comment 3 Tapas Jena 2021-05-10 19:01:54 UTC
Analysis is complete for AAP 1.2 and as a result, I found that none of the AAP components do use the concerned vulnerable functions i.e. getAnnotationURL() and loadAnnotation(). Hence,  marking AAP as "Not Affected" .

Comment 4 Tapas Jena 2021-05-10 19:04:19 UTC
Correcting the vulnerable functions : splitDeviceRe, splitTailRe and splitPathRe. None of these are used by AAP 1.2 and its components.

Comment 7 Przemyslaw Roguski 2021-05-11 18:05:56 UTC

In Red Had Quay , whilst a vulnerable version of `path-parse` is included in the quay-rhel8 container it is a development dependency only, hence the impact by this vulnerability is low.
