New in this release

Enhancements

  • Cluster recovery with manually uploaded modules

    • For clusters containing databases with manually uploaded modules, cluster recovery is now seamlessly integrated.
  • Support package now contains supervisorctl status when created by the rladmin command (RS107879).

  • Port range (reserved_ports) is now configurable using rladmin or the REST API.

    • Removed rlutil reserved_ports, which was deprecated in Redis Enterprise Software version 7.2.4-52.
  • License REST API requests return the number of used shards (RAM & flash).

Redis modules

Redis Enterprise Software version 7.2.4-64 includes the following Redis Stack modules (no changes since Redis Enterprise Software version 7.2.4-52:

Resolved issues

  • RS107986 - Allow ports lower than 1024 when configuring auditing using rladmin.

  • RS105335 - Added error handling to CLIENT NO-TOUCH to return an error if the Redis database version is earlier than 7.2.0 or the command is restricted by ACL rules (handles CLIENT NO-TOUCH command limitations).

  • RS105137 - Fixed audit reconnect issue: sometimes the proxy failed to reconnect to a restarted audit listener.

  • RS108394 - Added API validation to prevent configuring Replica Of with TLS without providing a server certificate.

  • RS108233 - Proceed with the upgrade even if an empty saslauthd configuration exists.

  • RS107730 - Fixed a bug where the failed_authentication_attempt event log always contained 127.0.0.1 instead of the real client IP address.

  • RS107727 - Fixed permission issue for /etc/cron.d/redislabs file in Red Hat.

  • RS108230 - Removed unused test certificate and key files from the redis-enterprise package.

  • RS107718 - When cm_server is disabled through optional_services, envoy (the cluster’s reverse proxy) now stops listening on the cm_server port.

  • RS107909 - Added os_family, which groups operating systems into categories, to node properties and upgrade logic. Fixed the known limitation for upgrades and module uploads for the following operating systems: Rocky Linux, Oracle Linux 7, Oracle Linux 8, CentOS 7, and CentOS 8.

Security

Open source Redis security fixes compatibility

As part of Redis’s commitment to security, Redis Enterprise Software implements the latest security fixes available with open source Redis. Redis Enterprise has already included the fixes for the relevant CVEs.

Some CVEs announced for open source Redis do not affect Redis Enterprise due to different or additional functionality available in Redis Enterprise that is not available in open source Redis.

Redis Enterprise 7.2.4-64 supports open source Redis 7.2, 6.2, and 6.0. Below is the list of open source Redis CVEs fixed by version.

Redis 7.2.x:

  • (CVE-2023-41056) In some cases, Redis may incorrectly handle resizing of memory buffers, which can result in incorrect accounting of buffer sizes and lead to heap overflow and potential remote code execution.

  • (CVE-2023-41053) Redis does not correctly identify keys accessed by SORT_RO and, as a result, may grant users executing this command access to keys that are not explicitly authorized by the ACL configuration. (Redis 7.2.1)

Redis 7.0.x:

  • (CVE-2023-41056) In some cases, Redis may incorrectly handle resizing of memory buffers, which can result in incorrect accounting of buffer sizes and lead to heap overflow and potential remote code execution.

  • (CVE-2023-41053) Redis does not correctly identify keys accessed by SORT_RO and, as a result, may grant users executing this command access to keys that are not explicitly authorized by the ACL configuration. (Redis 7.0.13)

  • (CVE-2023-36824) Extracting key names from a command and a list of arguments may, in some cases, trigger a heap overflow and result in reading random heap memory, heap corruption, and potentially remote code execution. Specifically: using COMMAND GETKEYS* and validation of key names in ACL rules. (Redis 7.0.12)

  • (CVE-2023-28856) Authenticated users can use the HINCRBYFLOAT command to create an invalid hash field that will crash Redis on access. (Redis 7.0.11)

  • (CVE-2023-28425) Specially crafted MSETNX command can lead to assertion and denial-of-service. (Redis 7.0.10)

  • (CVE-2023-25155) Specially crafted SRANDMEMBER, ZRANDMEMBER, and HRANDFIELD commands can trigger an integer overflow, resulting in a runtime assertion and termination of the Redis server process. (Redis 7.0.9)

  • (CVE-2023-22458) Integer overflow in the Redis HRANDFIELD and ZRANDMEMBER commands can lead to denial-of-service. (Redis 7.0.8)

  • (CVE-2021-32625) An integer overflow bug in Redis version 6.0 or newer can be exploited using the STRALGO LCS command to corrupt the heap and potentially result with remote code execution. This is a result of an incomplete fix by CVE-2021-29477. (Redis 6.2.4)

  • (CVE-2021-29478) An integer overflow bug in Redis 6.2 could be exploited to corrupt the heap and potentially result with remote code execution.

Redis 6.0.x:

  • (CVE-2022-24834) A specially crafted Lua script executing in Redis can trigger a heap overflow in the cjson and cmsgpack libraries, and result in heap corruption and potentially remote code execution.

  • (CVE-2022-36021) String matching commands (like SCAN or KEYS) with a specially crafted pattern to trigger a denial-of-service attack on Redis, causing it to hang and consume 100% CPU time. (Redis 6.0.18)

  • (CVE-2022-35977) Integer overflow in the Redis SETRANGE and SORT/SORT_RO commands can drive Redis to OOM panic. (Redis 6.0.17)
