CVE-2017-9794 Apache Geode gfsh query vulnerability

Severity: Low
CVSS Base Score 3.5 (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
Apache Geode 1.0.0 through 1.2.0

Description:
When a cluster is operating in secure mode, a user with read
privileges for specific data  regions can use the gfsh command line
utility to execute queries.  The query results may contain data from
another user's concurrently executing gfsh query, potentially
revealing data that the user is not authorized to view.

Mitigation:
Users of the affected versions should upgrade to Apache Geode 1.2.1 or later.

Credit:
This issue was reported responsibly to the Apache Geode PMC by Jared
Stewart from Pivotal.

CVE-2017-9797 Apache Geode client/server authentication vulnerability

Severity: Medium
CVSS Base Score 6.5 (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:H)

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
Apache Geode 1.0.0 through 1.2.0

Description:
When a cluster is operating in secure mode, an unauthenticated client
can enter multi-user authentication mode and send metadata messages.
These metadata operations could leak information about application
data types.  In addition, an attacker could perform a denial of
service attack on the cluster.

Mitigation:
Users of the affected versions should upgrade to Apache Geode 1.2.1 or later.

Credit:
This issue was reported responsibly to the Apache Geode Security Team
by Dan Smith from Pivotal.
