Description Sam Fowler 2018-10-31 04:07:20 UTC
nginx before versions 1.15.6 and 1.14.1 has a vulnerability in the implementation of HTTP/2 that can allow for excessive CPU usage.

Comment 2 Borja Tarraso 2018-11-02 15:08:29 UTC
Ansible Tower is not enabling neither using http2 within the nginx configuration file, so it is not affected.

Comment 3 Borja Tarraso 2018-11-02 20:11:10 UTC
Already did some research and discuss with Satoe I. from CloudForms. CFME is not using in any way nginx more than the inclusion from Ansible Tower (not changed or altered configuration or used outside from Tower), and Ansible Tower is not affected, so CloudForms is also not affected; updating the task accordingly.

Comment 9 Riccardo Schirone 2018-11-08 11:41:07 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of rh-nginx18-nginx as shipped with Red Hat Software Collections as they did not include the vulnerable module ngx_http_v2_module.
