Denial of Service (DoS)

  • Vulnerable module: io.vertx:vertx-core
  • Introduced through: io.vertx:vertx-core@3.5.1

Detailed paths

  • Introduced through: maxamel/GDH@maxamel/GDH#9d800af33e48d1c4a0a60b40e779d68eafeb8dda io.vertx:vertx-core@3.5.1
    Remediation: Upgrade to io.vertx:vertx-core@3.5.4.

Overview

io.vertx:vertx-core is a tool-kit for building reactive applications on the JVM.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Denial of Service (DoS) attack. The WebSocket HTTP upgrade implementation buffers the full http request before doing the handshake, holding the entire request body in memory without a limit which could lead to memory exhaustion.

Details

Denial of Service (DoS) describes a family of attacks, all aimed at making a system inaccessible to its intended and legitimate users.

Unlike other vulnerabilities, DoS attacks usually do not aim at breaching security. Rather, they are focused on making websites and services unavailable to genuine users resulting in downtime.

One popular Denial of Service vulnerability is DDoS (a Distributed Denial of Service), an attack that attempts to clog network pipes to the system by generating a large volume of traffic from many machines.

When it comes to open source libraries, DoS vulnerabilities allow attackers to trigger such a crash or crippling of the service by using a flaw either in the application code or from the use of open source libraries.

Two common types of DoS vulnerabilities:

  • High CPU/Memory Consumption- An attacker sending crafted requests that could cause the system to take a disproportionate amount of time to process. For example, commons-fileupload:commons-fileupload.

  • Crash - An attacker sending crafted requests that could cause the system to crash. For Example, npm ws package

Remediation

Upgrade io.vertx:vertx-core to version 3.5.4 or higher.

HTTP Header Injection

  • Vulnerable module: io.vertx:vertx-core
  • Introduced through: io.vertx:vertx-core@3.5.1

Detailed paths

  • Introduced through: maxamel/GDH@maxamel/GDH#9d800af33e48d1c4a0a60b40e779d68eafeb8dda io.vertx:vertx-core@3.5.1
    Remediation: Upgrade to io.vertx:vertx-core@3.5.2.

Overview

io.vertx:vertx-core is a tool-kit for building reactive applications on the JVM.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to HTTP Header Injection. The HttpServer response headers and HttpClient request headers do not check wether header name or value contain \r or \n chars. This allow unfiltered values to inject a new header in the client request or server response.

Remediation

Upgrade io.vertx:vertx-core to version 3.5.2 or higher.
