K98053339:HTTP/2 Ping Flood vulnerability CVE-2019-9512

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: 20 Aug, 2019

Latest   Publication Date: 24 Sep, 2019

Security Advisory Description

Some HTTP/2 implementations are vulnerable to ping floods, potentially leading
to a denial of service. The attacker sends continual pings to an HTTP/2 peer,
causing the peer to build an internal queue of responses. Depending on how
efficiently this data is queued, this can consume excess CPU, memory, or both.
(CVE-2019-9512)

Impact

The BIG-IP system may exhaust available resources and fail over to another
system in the device group.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 773673 (BIG-IP) to this vulnerability.
