CVE-2021-30639 Denial of Service

Severity: Important

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
Apache Tomcat 10.0.3 to 10.0.4
Apache Tomcat 9.0.44
Apache Tomcat 8.5.64

An error introduced as part of a change to improve error handling during non-blocking I/O meant that the error flag associated with the Request object was not reset between requests. This meant that once a non-blocking I/O error occurred, all future requests handled by that request object would fail. Users were able to trigger non-blocking I/O errors, e.g. by dropping a connection, thereby creating the possibility of triggering a DoS. Applications that do not use non-blocking I/O are not exposed to this vulnerability.

Users of the affected versions should apply one of the following
- Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 10.0.5 or later
- Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 9.0.45 or later
- Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 8.5.65 or later
