Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
A flaw was discovered in FasterXML jackson-databind, where it would permit polymorphic deserialization of malicious objects using the ehcache and logback JNDI gadgets when used in conjunction with polymorphic type handling methods such as `enableDefaultTyping()` or when @JsonTypeInfo is using `Id.CLASS` or `Id.MINIMAL_CLASS` or in any other way which ObjectMapper.readValue might instantiate objects from unsafe sources. An attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code.

Description Pedro Sampaio 2019-09-17 16:34:01 UTC
A Polymorphic Typing issue was discovered in FasterXML jackson-databind 2.x before This occurs when Default Typing is enabled (either globally or for a specific property) for an externally exposed JSON endpoint and the service has the logback jar in the classpath.

Comment 1 Pedro Sampaio 2019-09-17 16:37:13 UTC
Created jackson-databind tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1752964]

Comment 5 Cedric Buissart 2019-09-23 10:11:45 UTC

OpenDaylight provided as part of Red Hat OpenStack does not utilize logback when used in a supported configuration. Therefore, the prerequisites for this vulnerability are not present and OpenDaylight is not affected.

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 12 Paramvir jindal 2019-11-19 11:01:21 UTC
Marking RHSSO as not affected because RHSSO 7.3.4 ships :

Affected version are FasterXML jackson-databind 2.x before

Comment 16 Kunjan Rathod 2019-12-06 01:40:21 UTC
This vulnerability is out of security support scope for the following products:
 * Red Hat JBoss BPMS 6
 * Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization & Services 6

Please refer to https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/jboss_notes for more details.

Comment 19 Jonathan Christison 2020-02-28 14:48:10 UTC

The following conditions are needed for an exploit, we recommend avoiding all if possible
* Deserialization from sources you do not control
* `enableDefaultTyping()`
* `@JsonTypeInfo using `id.CLASS` or `id.MINIMAL_CLASS`
