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.


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 (see the below screenshot)

Request exception





policy/drools-pdpdom4j

This is both a security and a license issue due to Drools v6.5.0.Final including and using this dependency.

Upgrading to 7.x version would not clear this issue and would result in multiple other license exceptions that are not clearable.

Request exception
policy/drools-pdpjsoup

This is a security issue due to Drools v6.5.0.Final including this dependency.

Upgrading to 7.x version would not clear this issue and would result in multiple other new license exceptions that are not clearable.

Request exception
policy/drools-pdpant

This is a security issue due to Drools v6.5.0.Final including this dependency.

Upgrading to 7.x version would clear this issue, but would then consequently result in multiple other new license exceptions that are not clearable.

Request exception




policy/apex-pdporg.codehaus.jackson.jackson-mapper-asl

This dependency is pulled in by org.apache.avro. We are using the latest version of Avro.

We are using Avro to deserialize events. Avro uses jackson-mapper-asl for its Json decoding. The schema for the events we are decoding is controlled in policy models and prevents executable code being specified. Therefore this vulnerability cannot be exploited.

Request exception

policy/apex-pdporg.python.jython-standalone.2.7.1

This dependency brings in the Jython (Python) interpreter for executing scripts written in Python under the control of Apex.

There are two vulnerabilities, both concerning adding extra modules to the Python libraries on a host running Python scripts under Jython.

  • The setup.py and build_py.py files allow extra python packages to be installed on the host during the startup of Jython. This mechanism uses the setuptools mechanism to install those packages. That mechanism does not enforce path traversal restrictions, allowing malicious packages to access protected areas on the host.
  • Jython uses packages installed with the python pip utility. Pip is vulnerable to Path Traversal attacks, malicious packages installed with pip can access protected areas on the host

The solution is to warn developers not to install malicious extra Python packages.

Request Exception

The apex-pdp documentation for the Jython plugin is updated to warn developers that they must ensure that extra python packages they add at install time with PIP or using the setup.py/build_py.py mechanisms must be checked and certified by them as not being malicious.


policy/apex-pdpdom4j

This dependency is pulled in by hibernate-core. We are using the latest release of Hibernate.

The XML schema of incoming events is controlled in Apex and arbitrary code even if it was injected cannot be executed.
