Apache Kafka Security Update

Written by Magnus Landerblom

A security vulnerability has been identified in Apache Kafka. It affects all releases since 2.8.0. The vulnerability allows malicious unauthenticated clients to allocate large amounts of memory on brokers. This can lead to brokers hitting OutOfMemoryException and causing denial of service.

We have made version 2.8.2 available for all customers and you can easily update from the Nodes page.
