- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2022-2047, CVE-2022-2048.
- More information:
Two security vulnerabilities were discovered in Jetty, a Java servlet engine and webserver.
In Eclipse Jetty the parsing of the authority segment of an http scheme URI, the Jetty HttpURI class improperly detects an invalid input as a hostname. This can lead to failures in a Proxy scenario.
In Eclipse Jetty HTTP/2 server implementation, when encountering an invalid HTTP/2 request, the error handling has a bug that can wind up not properly cleaning up the active connections and associated resources. This can lead to a Denial of Service scenario where there are no enough resources left to process good requests.
For the stable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed in version 9.4.39-3+deb11u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your jetty9 packages.
