Istio Fragments in Path May Lead to Authorization Policy Bypass

Impact

Istio 1.11.0, 1.10.3 and below, and 1.9.7 and below contain a remotely exploitable vulnerability where an HTTP request with #fragment in the path may bypass Istio’s URI path based authorization policies.

Patches

Workarounds

A Lua filter may be written to normalize the path. This is similar to the Path normalization presented in the Security Best Practices guide.
