Description Sandipan Roy 2023-03-21 04:50:52 UTC
Redis is an in-memory database that persists on disk. Starting in version 7.0.8 and prior to version 7.0.10, authenticated users can use the MSETNX command to trigger a runtime assertion and termination of the Redis server process. The problem is fixed in Redis version 7.0.10.

Created redis tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-37 [bug 2180753]

Comment 2 TEJ RATHI 2023-03-22 08:13:36 UTC
The vulnerability was introduced in Redis v7.0.8. Red Hat enterprise Linux - 8, 9 ships Redis v6.x.x and lower, which does not contain the vulnerable code. Hence, not-affected.
