[ANNOUNCE] CVE-2017-5635 and CVE-2017-5636

Andy LoPresto-2
Apache NiFi PMC would like to announce the discovery and resolution of CVE-2017-5635 and CVE-2017-5636. These issues have been resolved and new versions of the Apache NiFi project were released in accordance with the Apache Release Process. 

Fixed in Apache NiFi 0.7.2 and 1.1.2

CVE-2107-5635: Apache NiFi Unauthorized Data Access In Cluster Environment

Severity: Important

Versions Affected:

Apache NiFi 0.7.0
Apache NiFi 0.7.1
Apache NiFi 1.1.0
Apache NiFi 1.1.1
Description: In a cluster environment, if an anonymous user request is replicated to another node, the originating node identity is used rather than the “anonymous” user.

Mitigation: A fix has been provided (removing the negative check for anonymous user before building the proxy chain and throwing an exception, and evaluating each user in the proxy chain iteration and comparing against a static constant anonymous user). This fix was applied in NIFI-3487 and released in Apache NiFi 0.7.2 and 1.1.2. 1.x users running a clustered environment should upgrade to 1.1.2. 0.x users running a clustered environment should upgrade to 0.7.2.

Severity: Moderate

Versions Affected:

Apache NiFi 0.7.0
Apache NiFi 0.7.1
Apache NiFi 1.1.0
Apache NiFi 1.1.1
Description: In a cluster environment, the proxy chain serialization/deserialization is vulnerable to an injection attack where a carefully crafted username could impersonate another user and gain their permissions on a replicated request to another node.

Mitigation: A fix has been provided (modification of the tokenization code and sanitization of user-provided input). This fix was applied in NIFI-3487 and released in Apache NiFi 0.7.2 and 1.1.2. 1.x users running a clustered environment should upgrade to 1.1.2. 0.x users running a clustered environment should upgrade to 0.7.2.
