DLA-2109-1 netty -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 19 Feb 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 950966, Bug 950967.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-20444, CVE-2019-20445, CVE-2020-7238.
- More information:
Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the HTTP server provided by Netty, a Java NIO client/server socket framework:
HttpObjectDecoder.java allows an HTTP header that lacks a colon, which might be interpreted as a separate header with an incorrect syntax, or might be interpreted as an "invalid fold."
HttpObjectDecoder.java allows a Content-Length header to be accompanied by a second Content-Length header, or by a Transfer-Encoding header.
Netty allows HTTP Request Smuggling because it mishandles Transfer-Encoding whitespace (such as a [space]Transfer-Encoding:chunked line) and a later Content-Length header.
For Debian 8
Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1:3.2.6.Final-2+deb8u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your netty packages.
