Subject: CVE-2023-30601: Apache Cassandra: Privilege escalation when
 enabling FQL/Audit logs 

Severity: important

Affected versions:

- Apache Cassandra 4.0.0 through 4.0.9
- Apache Cassandra 4.1.0 through 4.1.1


Privilege escalation when enabling FQL/Audit logs allows user with JMX access to run arbitrary commands as the user running Apache Cassandra
This issue affects Apache Cassandra: from 4.0.0 through 4.0.9, from 4.1.0 through 4.1.1.

The vulnerability requires nodetool/JMX access to be exploitable, disable access for any non-trusted users.

Upgrade to 4.0.10 or 4.1.2 and leave the new FQL/Auditlog configuration property allow_nodetool_archive_command as false.

This issue is being tracked as CASSANDRA-18550
