Changes in 2.1.18

.NET Core 2.1.18 release carries both security and non-security fixes.

CVE-2020-1108: .NET Core Denial of Service Vulnerability

Microsoft is releasing this security advisory to provide information about a vulnerability in .NET Core. This advisory also provides guidance on what developers can do to update their applications to remove this vulnerability.

Microsoft is aware of a denial of service vulnerability which exists when .NET Core improperly handles web requests. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could cause a denial of service against a .NET Core web application. The vulnerability can be exploited remotely, without authentication.

A remote unauthenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability by issuing specially crafted requests to the .NET Core application.
