Summary

IBM Development Package for Apache Spark addresses the following vulnerability by updating the affected component.

The primary role of Jetty within Apache Spark is to provide the Web UI via http, or optionally via https. This https communication channel is encrypted using a server-side keystore, which should be protected with a password. The Jetty vulnerability is an algorithm that exposes a tractable brute force attack against this password.

Vulnerability Details
