How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.geode:geode-core to version 1.2.1 or higher.


Affected versions of org.apache.geode:geode-core are vulnerable to Information Exposure. When an Apache Geode cluster before v1.2.1 is operating in secure mode, an unauthenticated client can enter multi-user authentication mode and send metadata messages. These metadata operations could leak information about application data types. In addition, an attacker could perform a denial of service attack on the cluster.
