The library accepts such connections without > applying its security mechanism. > > Solution: if security is defined on a socket, reject all V2 and earlier > connections, unconditionally. A patch for the zeromq 4.0.x stable series is available at https://github.com/zeromq/zeromq4-x/commit/b6e3e0f601e2c1ec1f3aac880ed6a3fe63043e51 AFAICT no CVE has been assigned (or requested) for this, and the issue has been public since December of last year. Could a CVE be assigned please? Cheers Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (820 bytes)
