Known security issues in KSE 8.3

Please can I get some advice regarding today’s email from Katalon “[Action Required] Known Vulnerabilities with Katalon Studio”?

Is it necessary for us to upgrade postgresql and jackson-databind in all our Katalon projects if all we are doing is creating and executing automation against internal apps (within our private network)?

Also, while the postgresql upgrade is simple, with one simple jar file, I’m not sure about jackson-databind. The link goes to a Maven repository, I don’t see anywhere on the page that gives me a download for a jar file, so does this mean I have to download the maven project and build it myself in Eclipse?

Hi @gengland

You can download the latest jackson-databind library in Maven Central Repository. Here’s a link to version In Files, click bundle to download the library.

Happy Testing



Perfect, thanks Jass
