INC-130299 · Issue 583924

Updated SSO operator authentication handling after passivation

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

With SSO enabled and the pyAccessGroupsAdditional value list populated with the Mapping tab, attempting to access an expired session with an old cookie resulted in a stale thread exception while mapping value list attributes. This was due to using an AuthServicePage which was created by another session thread that had become stale for current session, and has been resolved by updating the code to call the authenticateoperator method on the authservicepage copy.

INC-135874 · Issue 58341

Added handling for password containing a colon on Pega Client for Windows

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

If a password included a colon (:), it was possible to log in on the desktop but not Pega Client for Windows. This was due to authentication files specific to the Windows mobility client, and handling has been added to resolve the issue.

INC-137709 · Issue 584291

New security role added to restrict access to development-specific classes

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

A new security role and related RAROs have been implemented to allow better security for end users on non-BAC systems. This restricts access to Rules and execution of activities on classes that are development-specific.

INC-137978 · Issue 586184

CDK key loading modified for better database compatibility

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

Users were unable to log on to the system and received the error "There has been an issue; please consult your system administrator." Investigation showed the log errors stating "(dataencryption.DataKeyProvider) ERROR localhost - Could not get CDK from systemKeyManagementCache - System CDK is null". This was an issue specific to the MS SQL Server database when there were 6 or more CDKs in the database: CDK keys are loaded from database into Cache using an SQL statement which had the ORDER clause. By default, the ORDER clause treats NULL values differently on different databases, and this caused MS SQL databases to not load a necessary CDK key. To resolve this, the SQL query has been modified so the result will be the same for all supported daatbases (Oracle, Postgres & MS SQL Server).

INC-138490 · Issue 591016

Handling added for samesite cookies with httpOnly

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

After enabling samesite cookies on Google Chrome to support Mashup login, intermittent issues were seen with a non-mashup login where entering the OperatorID and password only resulted in a refresh of the login screen. This was traced to a scenario where an httponly cookie attribute was present along with samesite cookie attributes, and has been resolved by adding handling for a condition where samesite is set and httpOnly is enabled.

SR-D95148 · Issue 557485

Port validation updated for redirect URI

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

When an offline app for windows client was generated, trying to login via SSO resulted in the error "invalid redirect_uri". This was traced to the system validating the whole loopback redirection URL, e.g. "http://127.0.0.1:1234/redirection", including the port number. To enhance flexibility, an update has been made so that the port number will not be validated, allowing the client to establish it based on availability at the moment of the request to the authorization service. NOTE: As a best practice, a loopback URL should not be configured as a redirect URI. If a loopback URL is configured, then at run time the port number will not be validated, and the client application can use any available port on the system including ports that may not be intended for use.

SR-A87291 · Issue 255631

JDBC password encryption check logic updated

Resolved in Pega Version 7.2.2

When using a Database instance with a JDBC connection URL, the specified password is encrypted. An issue was occurring where multiple saves of the instance caused the encrypted password to be encrypted again, causing the agent to lose access to the DB due to an authentication failure. The problem was traced to a logic flaw in the method used to check whether the password was already encrypted, and has been fixed.

SR-A91802 · Issue 260001

Apache Struts JARS updated to improve security

Resolved in Pega Version 7.2.2

The Apache Struts JARs have been updated to resolve the following potential security vulnerabilities: The REST plugin in Apache Struts 2 2.3.20 through 2.3.28.1 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted expression. Apache Struts 2 2.3.20 through 2.3.28.1 mishandles token validation, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks via unspecified vectors. The URLValidator class in Apache Struts 2 2.3.20 through 2.3.28.1 and 2.5.x before 2.5.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a null value for a URL field.

SR-A87698 · Issue 256038

SQL info stripped from user-view DB2 error codes

Resolved in Pega Version 7.2.2

A security audit showed that entering bogus values for pyActivity in a URL resulted in actual DB@ error codes provided to user in the exception response. In order to prevent any vulnerability, the message shown to the http client will mask SQLCodes.

SR-A87698 · Issue 260087

SQL info stripped from user-view DB2 error codes

Resolved in Pega Version 7.2.2

A security audit showed that entering bogus values for pyActivity in a URL resulted in actual DB@ error codes provided to user in the exception response. This was not an issue with Oracle. In order to prevent any vulnerability, the message shown to the http client will mask SQLCodes.
