Netty is an open-source, asynchronous event-driven network application framework for rapid development of maintainable high performance protocol servers & clients. In Netty (
io.netty:netty-codec-http2), which is used by zookeeper, there is a vulnerability that enables request smuggling. The content-length header is not correctly validated if the request only uses a single
Http2HeaderFrame with the
endStream set to to true. This could lead to request smuggling if the request is proxied to a remote peer and translated to HTTP/1.1. This is a followup of GHSA-wm47-8v5p-wjpj/CVE-2021-21295 which did miss to fix this one case.
