Python Agent 4.5.5 contains vulnerability

Our team has found a vulnerability in the Python agent 4.5.5 version during a scan and are unable to deploy.  Has anyone else found this issue?  Here is a request from our DevOps team.

 

Installing the python appdynamics agent 4.5.5.0 pulls in the com.fasterxml.jackson.core_jackson-databind version 2.9.9.1 as a dependency, which includes some critical vulnerabilities (CVSS 9.8) https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2019-14379, https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2019-16335, and https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2019-14540.

 

Could we ask that the next python appdynamics agent update (4.5.6?) use at least com.fasterxml.jackson.core_jackson-databind 2.9.10, which resolves these vulnerabilities.

 

In our environment we did a “pip install appdynamics”, and a pip list afterwards shows the following versions of the packages installed:

 

appdynamics                        4.5.5.0   

appdynamics-bindeps-linux-x64      9.0      

appdynamics-proxysupport-linux-x64 1.8.0.51.1

Just to let anyone else know the status I am working heavily with support and other channels to get this addressed.  In the meantime one can do a pip install but remove the jackson file in question as a workaround but goal is a clean pip install hopefully soon.

Hey Doug,

 

I am the Product Manager for th DL languages.  I appreciate you bringing this up to the community.  We are working to track this with our engineering leads to close the vulnerability in the short-term.  We are also working at a better long term strategy.
