Potentially Affected TP-Link Products:
Omada Software Controller uses the Spring Framework and supports Java 8 (OpenJDK-8) and above since version 5.0. However, its use of the Spring Framework does not meet the above prerequisites and our attack simulation/vulnerability scan results in a Failure.
Nevertheless, given that the nature of the vulnerability is more general, we recommend that you downgrade to Java 8 (OpenJDK-8) to run the controller. For more detailed guides, please refer to our community.
Both Omada Hardware Controller (OC200 v1/v2, OC300) and Omada Cloud-Based Controller use OpenJDK-8 and are therefore not affected by this vulnerability. TP-Link will update the built-in Spring Framework to fix the vulnerability in subsequent updates.
