CVE-2023-28709 - Denial of Service (DoS)

Severity: None2023-07-26

Security Advisories


The fix for CVE-2023-24998 was incomplete for Apache Tomcat 11.0.0-M2 to 11.0.0-M4, 10.1.5 to 10.1.7, 9.0.71 to 9.0.73 and 8.5.85 to 8.5.87. If non-default HTTP connector settings were used such that the maxParameterCount could be reached using query string parameters and a request was submitted that supplied exactly maxParameterCount parameters in the query string, the limit for uploaded request parts could be bypassed with the potential for a denial of service to occur.

The Oxygen products incorporate Apache Tomcat as a third-party library. This advisory was opened to address the potential impact of this third-party library vulnerability.
