Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-8977) Potential DOS Exposure from Netty
Date Thu, 12 Nov 2015 16:29:11 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-8977?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Aleksey Yeschenko resolved CASSANDRA-8977.
------------------------------------------
    Resolution: Not A Problem
      Assignee:     (was: Brandon Williams)

Netty library already upgraded in 2.1+, and we are not going to have any more commits to 2.0
anymore (and especially ones changing a major library version), so closing as Not A Problem.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-8977
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Benjamin Coverston

> CVE-2014-3488 : The SslHandler in Netty before 3.9.2 allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (infinite loop and CPU consumption) via a crafted SSLv2Hello message.
> 2.0 currently uses Netty 3.6.6 
> Upgrading to 3.9.2+ will fix this issue, and patch a few other known vulnerabilities
that we do not currently expose.
