      Description

      CVE-2019-0199 Apache Tomcat HTTP/2 DoS

      Severity: Important

      Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

      Versions Affected:
      Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.14
      Apache Tomcat 8.5.0 to 8.5.37

      Description:
      The HTTP/2 implementation accepted streams with excessive numbers of
      SETTINGS frames and also permitted clients to keep streams open without
      reading/writing request/response data. By keeping streams open for
      requests that utilised the Servlet API's blocking I/O, clients were able
      to cause server-side threads to block eventually leading to thread
      exhaustion and a DoS.

      Mitigation:
      Users of affected versions should apply one of the following mitigations:

      • Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 9.0.16 or later
        Note: Apache Tomcat 9.0.15 contains the necessary fixes but was not
        released
      • Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 8.5.38 or later

      Credit:
      The issue with excessive SETTINGS frames was reported by Michal Karm
      Babacek from Red Hat, Inc. As a result of his report the Tomcat Security
      team identified additional issues related to read/write timeouts.
