CVE-2018-5968 Jackson JSON Library Vulnerability in NetApp Products

Summary

Multiple NetApp products incorporate the Jackson JSON library. FasterXML/jackson-databind versions through 2.8.11, 2.9.x through 2.9.3 are susceptible to a vulnerability which when successfully exploited could lead to unauthorized access to sensitive information, unauthorized addition or modification of data or Denial of Service(DoS).

Impact

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could lead to unauthorized access to sensitive information, unauthorized addition or updation of data or Denial of Service(DoS).

Although OnCommand Unified Manager 7.2 and higher ships vulnerable versions of jackson-databind it does not call on enableDefaultTyping() for any polymorphic deserialization operations which is the root cause of this vulnerability.
