Affecting org.apache.solr:solr-core artifact, versions [,8.2.0)

Do your applications use this vulnerable package? Test your applications

Overview

org.apache.solr:solr-core is an open source enterprise search platform built on Apache Lucene

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Authentication. DataImportHandler has a feature in which the whole DIH configuration can come from a request's "dataConfig" parameter, and since a DIH config can contain scripts, this parameter is a security risk. Starting with version 8.2.0 of Solr, use of this parameter requires setting the Java System property "enable.dih.dataConfigParam" to true.

Remediation

Upgrade org.apache.solr:solr-core to version 8.2.0 or higher.
