Subject [CVE-2018-8012] Apache ZooKeeper Quorum Peer mutual authentication
Date Mon, 21 May 2018 16:51:42 GMT
CVE-2018-8012: Apache ZooKeeper Quorum Peer mutual authentication

Severity: Critical

Vendor:
The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
ZooKeeper prior to 3.4.10
ZooKeeper 3.5.0-alpha through 3.5.3-beta
The unsupported ZooKeeper 1.x through 3.3.x versions may be also affected

Description:
No authentication/authorization is enforced when a server attempts to join
a quorum. As a result an arbitrary end point could join the cluster and
begin propagating counterfeit changes to the leader.

Mitigation:
Upgrade to 3.4.10 or later (3.5.4-beta or later if on the 3.5 branch) and
enable Quorum Peer mutual authentication.

Alternately ensure the ensemble election/quorum communication is protected
by a firewall as this will mitigate the issue.

See the documentation for more details on correct cluster administration.
