Vulnerability identifier: #VU12886
Vulnerability risk: Low
Exploitation vector: Network
The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to cause DoS condition on the target system.
The weakness exists due to unbounded memory allocation. A remote attacker can cause the service to crash and deserialize attacker-provided data, because the AtomicDoubleArray class (when serialized with Java serialization) and the CompoundOrdering class (when serialized with GWT serialization) perform eager allocation without appropriate checks on what a client has sent and whether the data size is reasonable.
Update to version 24.1.1.
