CouchDB < 0.11.0 Timing Attack Vulnerability

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

The remote host is running CouchDB, a document-oriented database. The installed version of CouchDB is earlier than 0.11.0. Such versions are potentially affected by an information disclosure vulnerability via a timing attack caused by a break-on-equality string comparison when verifying hashes or passwords.

Solution

Upgrade to CouchDB 0.11.0 or later.
