Severity
CVSSv3 Score
4.8
Vulnerability description

Eclipse Jetty is prone to a vulnerability where the buffer is not correctly recycled in Gzip Request inflation.

Risk description

If GZIP request body inflation is enabled and requests from different clients are multiplexed onto a single connection and if an attacker can send a request with a body that is received entirely by not consumed by the application, then a subsequent request on the same connection will see that body prepended to its body. The attacker will not see any data, but may inject data into the body of the subsequent request.

Recommendation

Update to versions 9.4.35.v20201120, 10.0.0.beta3, 11.0.0.beta3 or later.
