This Week in Spring - November 8th, 2022

Engineering | Josh Long | November 08, 2022 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I've been busy this last week! I've been visiting with customers and talking to the community here in South East Asia. I was in Malaysia last week, and now I'm in Bangkok, Thailand. I'm near the end of my time here in SE Asia, which makes me sad. I'm dearly going to miss the food and the weather, but time waits for no person, and it's almost time to go home.

And with time comes a jam-packed roster of new things we can read and learn from. So, without further ado, let's dive right into it!

This Week in Spring - November 1st, 2022

Engineering | Josh Long | October 31, 2022 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! How're you doin'? I hope you're doing well and had a great Halloween if you celebrate. I'm doing great. I'm in sunny Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, eating delicious food and hanging out with amazing people. Tomorrow, I'm off to Penang, Malaysia, for a little tourism before I get back to a more code-driven kinda fun: I'll be doing a developer event looking at the latest-and-greatest from Spring Boot 3 here in Kuala Lumpur on the 11th of November - ten short days from now! - so please join me!

Also, I just joined Mastodon - a decentralized and open-source Twitter; I'm not leaving Twitter, of course, but I would love to make new friends and grow the community there: @[email protected]

CVE-2022-31690: Privilege Escalation in spring-security-oauth2-client

Engineering | Steve Riesenberg | October 31, 2022 | ...

Spring Security 5.6.9 and 5.7.5 released on October 31st, 2022 included a fix for CVE-2022-31690 affecting the mapping of authorized scopes in spring-security-oauth2-client. Users are encouraged to update as soon as possible.


Users who have applied the mitigation should take note of the following impact:

No authorized scopes are mapped to the principal (current user) when the Authorization Server (AS) responds to the OAuth2 Access Token Response with an empty or missing scope parameter.

If you are affected by this vulnerability, users will not be granted any authorities beginning with SCOPE_ when the AS does not return scopes. Only the special authority ROLE_USER

Spring Session 3.0.0-RC1

Engineering | Rob Winch | October 26, 2022 | ...

Spring Session 3.1.0-RC1 has been released. The biggest news from this release is that Spring Session Geode was removed which means all of the Spring Modules now belong to the same lifecycle. This means that the Spring Session BOM no longer uses CalVer and instead uses the same version as the remaining Spring Session modules. For example, in this release the version of spring-session-bom is 3.0.0-RC1.
