Could you check >elasticsearch for this? Hi Salvatore. I've checked the current version in the archive and it definitely is vulnerable. I've made a patch and am just running some build tests now. I'm hoping that Hilko can make an upload as I'm not on the uploaders list, and don't really know how anyway. >If you fix the vulnerability please also make sure to include the >CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id in your changelog entry. Done. >For further information see: > > http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-3120 > https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2014-3120 > https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1124252 > https://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/issues/5853 > https://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/commit/81e83cca These were great resources - thanks for including them in the message.
