(edit)
It was discovered that the ElytronManagedThread in Wildfly's Elytron subsystem stores a SecurityIdentity to run the thread with that security identity. As these threads do not necessarily terminate if the 'keep alive' time has not expired, this could allow a shared thread to use the wrong security identity when executing.

Description Laura Pardo 2019-02-25 17:38:19 UTC
A flaw was found in Wildfly from version 11. The ElytronManagedThread in Elytron subsystem stores a SecurityIdentity to run the thread as. These threads do not necessarily terminate if the keep alive time has not expired. This could cause a shared thread to use the wrong security identity when executing.
