The library jsoup used in SAP Commerce may be vulnerable to DOS attacks. jsoup is used to sanitize various product related metadata in b2caccelerator. A user with write access to product metadata could exploit this vulnerability.
The impacts of the vulnerability are –
- Long response delays and service interruptions, thus degrading the service quality experienced by legitimate users
- Direct impact on availability
Reason and Prerequisites
This vulnerability affects any SAP Commerce installation using the B2C Accelerator.
SAP Commerce addresses this vulnerability by upgrading jsoup, which does not contain the vulnerability.
The following patch releases address this vulnerability:
- SAP Commerce Cloud Patch Release 2105.4
- SAP Commerce Cloud Patch Release 2011.14
- SAP Commerce Cloud Patch Release 2005.19

To minimize the impact, restrictions to product related field length could be implemented to limit the size of inputs sent to jsoup. See Creating Validation Constraints in Backoffice.
