CVE-2016-4977 Remote Code Execution (RCE) in Spring Security OAuth
Spring by Pivotal
- 2.0.0 to 2.0.9
- 1.0.0 to 1.0.5
When processing authorization requests using the whitelabel views, the response_type parameter value was executed as Spring SpEL which enabled a malicious user to trigger remote code execution via the crafting of the value for response_type.
Users of affected versions should apply the following mitigation:
- Users of 1.0.x should not use whitelabel views for approval and error pages
- Users of 2.0.x should either not use whitelabel views for approval and error pages or upgrade to 2.0.10 or later
