Description Wolfgang Frisch 2020-10-26 17:54:30 UTC

Elasticsearch versions before 6.8.13 and 7.9.2 contain a document disclosure
flaw when Document or Field Level Security is used. Search queries do not
properly preserve security permissions when executing certain complex queries.
This could result in the search disclosing the existence of documents the
attacker should not be able to view. This could result in an attacker gaining
additional insight into potentially sensitive indices.

Comment 1 Wolfgang Frisch 2020-10-26 18:39:15 UTC
Document and Field Level Security was added in v6.3.0.
