Debian LTS Advisory ([SECURITY] [DLA 1943-1] jackson-databind security update)

Published: 2019-10-03 02:00:14
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database (NVD)

CVSS Base Vector:

The remote host is missing an update for the 'jackson-databind' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the DSA-1943-1 advisory.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
More deserialization flaws were discovered in jackson-databind relating to the classes in com.zaxxer.hikari.HikariConfig, com.zaxxer.hikari.HikariDataSource, commons-dbcp and com.p6spy.engine.spy.P6DataSource, which could allow an unauthenticated user to perform remote code execution. The issue was resolved by extending the blacklist and blocking more classes from polymorphic deserialization.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 2.4.2-2+deb8u9. We recommend that you upgrade your jackson-databind Linux Distribution Packages.
