Description S. Seide 2019-11-26 12:00:24 UTC
as with the last similiar tickets - Jackson Databind lib contained some new vulnerabilities that are fixed with an update from 2.9.10 to
I'll prepare an pull request for that.

Its been running at our systems for some days by now without problems, "gradlew check" passes too.

* CVE-2019-16942 (Deserialization of Untrusted Data)
* CVE-2019-16943 (Deserialization of Untrusted Data)
* CVE-2019-17531 (Deserialization of Untrusted Data)

A mentioned before, the Jackson maintainers release patch level fixes that are different version numbers from the main Jackson version, therefore the extra gradle build variable for jackson databind is needed...

What do you think of updating to 2.10.1?
Comment 3 Felix Schumacher 2019-12-03 18:17:42 UTC
@Stefan, I hope the new version works for you, too. It would be nice, if you could give the next nightly a test.

    Update to jackson 2.10.1
    Originally Stefan Seide proposed to update jackson databind to,
    but as jackson seems to have moved on to 2.10.x as the current major
    release, it is probably better to update to the current newest major version.
    Squashed commit of the following:

yes - as currently used version 2.9 of jackson receives security bugfixes only anymore the move to 2.10 should be made.

We will look at it and give the jackson 2.10 a try. Will report back in some days after using it.
