      This High severity org.xerial.snappy:snappy-java Dependency vulnerability was introduced in versions 7.21.0, 8.9.0 and 8.13.0 of Bitbucket Data Center and Server.

      This org.xerial.snappy:snappy-java Dependency vulnerability, with a CVSS Score of 7.5 and a CVSS Vector of CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H allows an unauthenticated attacker to expose assets in your environment susceptible to exploitation which has no impact to confidentiality, no impact to integrity, high impact to availability, and requires no user interaction.

      Atlassian recommends that Bitbucket Data Center and Server customers upgrade to latest version, if you are unable to do so, upgrade your instance to one of the specified supported fixed versions:

      • Bitbucket Data Center and Server 7.21: Upgrade to a release greater than or equal to 7.21.21
      • Bitbucket Data Center and Server 8.9: Upgrade to a release greater than or equal to 8.9.5
      • Bitbucket Data Center and Server 8.13: Upgrade to a release greater than or equal to 8.13.1

      See the release notes (https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/release-notes). You can download the latest version of Bitbucket Data Center and Server from the download center (https://www.atlassian.com/software/bitbucket/download-archives).

      The National Vulnerability Database provides the following description for this vulnerability: snappy-java is a fast compressor/decompressor for Java. Due to unchecked multiplications, an integer overflow may occur in versions prior to, causing an unrecoverable fatal error.

      The function `compress(char[] input)` in the file `Snappy.java` receives an array of characters and compresses it. It does so by multiplying the length by 2 and passing it to the rawCompress` function.

      Since the length is not tested, the multiplication by two can cause an integer overflow and become negative. The rawCompress function then uses the received length and passes it to the natively compiled maxCompressedLength function, using the returned value to allocate a byte array.

      Since the maxCompressedLength function treats the length as an unsigned integer, it doesn’t care that it is negative, and it returns a valid value, which is casted to a signed integer by the Java engine. If the result is negative, a `java.lang.NegativeArraySizeException` exception will be raised while trying to allocate the array `buf`. On the other side, if the result is positive, the `buf` array will successfully be allocated, but its size might be too small to use for the compression, causing a fatal Access Violation error.

      The same issue exists also when using the `compress` functions that receive double, float, int, long and short, each using a different multiplier that may cause the same issue. The issue most likely won’t occur when using a byte array, since creating a byte array of size 0x80000000 (or any other negative value) is impossible in the first place.

      Version contains a patch for this issue.
