Vulnerability CVE-2019-11495


Published: 2019-09-10

Description:
In Couchbase Server 5.1.1, the cookie used for intra-node communication was not generated securely. Couchbase Server uses erlang:now() to seed the PRNG which results in a small search space for potential random seeds that could then be used to brute force the cookie and execute code against a remote system. This has been fixed in version 6.0.0.

Type:

CWE-94

(Improper Control of Generation of Code ('Code Injection'))
