In Spring Framework, versions 5.2.x prior to 5.2.3, versions 5.1.x prior to 5.1.13, and versions 5.0.x prior to 5.0.16, an application is vulnerable to a reflected file download (RFD) attack when it sets a “Content-Disposition” header in the response where the filename attribute is derived from user supplied input.
The Fischer product is not affected by this vulnerability. In Fischer Identity version 7.4.X, Spring WEB is not used to serve content.
The following is true for our application:
- The application does not set a “Content-Disposition” response header
- The header is not prepared with org.springframework.http.ContentDisposition.
Although the Fischer product is not affected by this specific vulnerability, we will upgrade our third party dependencies, including this particular spring library in our next minor release 7.5.0.
