We are currently looking into this, thanks for the post. @coutoPL please update this thread when you have news.

I cannot confirm it.
We use: (no CVE) but with (fixes CVE-2020-13956)

We have a CVE-check in our pipeline and it doesn’t detect anything in ROR 1.40.0 (any ES version).

@Sagarika How did you check this?

We use blackduck tool which shows these vulnerabilities

I see there are two bouncy castle jars bc-fips- and bctls-fips- present in ROR 1.40. I think those has some issues.

yes, ROR uses these two BouncyCastle jars. None of them have known CVEs.
In our project, we use OWASP Dependency-Check | OWASP Foundation to make sure our dependencies have no CVEs. Obviously, I checked these two manually to make sure that the reported CVEs are false positives. Maybe you should contact Blackduck creators and report the issue (false positive reports).

But thanks for raising the flag. CVEs are an important topic in security software, so we always double-check if someone has doubts. :ok_hand:
