This template is intended to be used to document the outcome of the impact analysis related to the known vulnerability reported by Nexus-IQ (CLM tab in Jenkins).  Nexus-IQ can identify the known vulnerabilities contained in the components use by onap components.

This table will be presented to TSC at Code Freeze milestone (M4) to the TSC.

It is recommended to first update to the latest version of the third party components available. In case the latest third party components still reports some vulnerabilities, you must provide an impact analysis as illustrated in the example below.

In the case where you have nested third party components (a third party component embedding another third party component) and there is NO CVE number for the upstream third party component (meaning the third party component you are embedding), it is recommended to open a vulnerability issue on the upstream third party component.

The following table is addressing 2 different scenarios:

  • Confirmation of a vulnerability including an action
  • False Positive

The information related to Repository, Group, Artifact, Version and Problem Code are extracted from the CLM report

False Positive

Explanation: This vulnerability issue only exists if com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.ObjectMapper.setDefaultTyping() is called before it is used for deserialization.

A centralized custom JacksonUtils class has been developed for CLAMP so that the ObjectMapper created there explicitly disable the default typing feature (the incriminated Jackson Feature)
The custom JacksonUtils class is used for Resteasy endpoints and clamp code.
A unit test has been added to validate that it's not possible to instantiate a java object based
on a JSON in the readValue method call.

Concerning the Spring version that CLAMP uses (as it embarks the jackson library too), clamp uses the 4.2.4.RELEASE,
which fixes the security problem.
