CVE-2019-16869 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2019-16869):
  Netty before 4.1.42.Final mishandles whitespace before the colon in HTTP
  headers (such as a "Transfer-Encoding : chunked" line), which leads to HTTP
  request smuggling.

CVE-2019-20444 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2019-20444):
  ** RESERVED ** This candidate has been reserved by an organization or
  individual that will use it when announcing a new security problem. When the
  candidate has been publicized, the details for this candidate will be
  provided.

CVE-2019-20445 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2019-20445):

CVE-2020-7238 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2020-7238):
  Netty 4.1.43.Final allows HTTP Request Smuggling because it mishandles
  Transfer-Encoding whitespace (such as a [space]Transfer-Encoding:chunked
  line) and a later Content-Length header. This issue exists because of an
  incomplete fix for CVE-2019-16869.

* CVE-2020-11612

Description:
"The ZlibDecoders in Netty 4.1.x before 4.1.46 allow for unbounded memory allocation while decoding a ZlibEncoded byte stream. An attacker could send a large ZlibEncoded byte stream to the Netty server, forcing the server to allocate all of its free memory to a single decoder."

Bug: https://github.com/netty/netty/issues/6168
PR: https://github.com/netty/netty/pull/9924

Note that the bug mentions (https://github.com/netty/netty/issues/6168#issuecomment-580746140) that this may be an incomplete fix given other decoders have not been fixed in that change.

CVE-2021-21290:

Netty is an open-source, asynchronous event-driven network application framework for rapid development of maintainable high performance protocol servers & clients. In Netty before version 4.1.59.Final there is a vulnerability on Unix-like systems involving an insecure temp file. When netty's multipart decoders are used local information disclosure can occur via the local system temporary directory if temporary storing uploads on the disk is enabled. On unix-like systems, the temporary directory is shared between all user. As such, writing to this directory using APIs that do not explicitly set the file/directory permissions can lead to information disclosure. Of note, this does not impact modern MacOS Operating Systems. The method "File.createTempFile" on unix-like systems creates a random file, but, by default will create this file with the permissions "-rw-r--r--". Thus, if sensitive information is written to this file, other local users can read this information. This is the case in netty's "AbstractDiskHttpData" is vulnerable. This has been fixed in version 4.1.59.Final. As a workaround, one may specify your own "java.io.tmpdir" when you start the JVM or use "DefaultHttpDataFactory.setBaseDir(...)" to set the directory to something that is only readable by the current user.

CVE-2016-4970:

handler/ssl/OpenSslEngine.java in Netty 4.0.x before 4.0.37.Final and 4.1.x before 4.1.1.Final allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop).
