CVSS v3.x: 5.9 (Medium)
- < 0.14.14
- >= 1.14.2
parser_apache2 plugin in Fluentd v0.14.14 to v1.14.1 suffers from a regular expression denial of service (ReDoS) vulnerability. A broken apache log with a certain pattern of string can spend too much time in a regular expression, resulting in the potential for a DoS attack.
Either of the following:
- Don’t use parser_apache2 for parsing logs which cannot guarantee generated by Apache.
- Put patched version of parser_apache2.rb into /etc/fluent/plugin directory (or any other directories specified by the environment variable
--pluginoption of fluentd).
