Description John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2021-09-21 20:36:43 UTC

Some components in Apache Kafka use Arrays.equals to validate a password or key, which is vulnerable to timing attacks that make brute force attacks for such credentials more likely to be successful. Users should upgrade to 2.8.1 or higher, or 3.0.0 or higher where this vulnerability has been fixed.

Please bump.
