VUL-0: CVE-2022-31152: matrix-synapse: denial of service due to incorrect application of event authorization rules
Last modified: 2022-09-05 09:15:05 UTC
Synapse is an open-source Matrix homeserver written and maintained by the
Matrix.org Foundation. The Matrix specification specifies a list of [event
which must be checked when determining if an event should be accepted into a
room. In versions of Synapse up to and including version 1.61.0, some of these
rules are not correctly applied. An attacker could craft events which would be
accepted by Synapse but not a spec-conformant server, potentially causing
divergence in the room state between servers. Administrators of homeservers with
federation enabled are advised to upgrade to version 1.62.0 or higher.
Federation can be disabled by setting
to an empty list (``) as a workaround.
openSUSE:Factory already fixed.
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-15-SP3 quite old version, don't know if it's affected.
