Kibana 6.8.11edit

Security updatesedit

  • In Kibana 6.8.10 and earlier, there is a denial of service (DoS) flaw in Timelion. Attackers can construct a URL that when viewed by a Kibana user, the Kibana process consumes large amounts of CPU and becomes unresponsive, CVE-2020-7016.

    You must upgrade to 6.8.11. If you are unable to upgrade, set timelion.enabled to false in your kibana.yml file to disable Timelion.

  • In all Kibana versions, region map visualizations contain a stored XSS flaw. Attackers that can edit or create region map visualizations can obtain sensitive information or perform destructive actions on behalf of Kibana users who view the region map visualization, CVE-2020-7017.

    You must upgrade to 6.8.11. If you are unable to upgrade, set xpack.maps.enabled, region_map.enabled, and tile_map.enabled to false in kibana.yml to disable map visualizations.


  • Makes SameSite cookie’s attribute configurable #68108
  • Supports deep links inside of RelayState for SAML IdP initiated login #69401

    If users want to deep link into Kibana after a successful SAML Identity Provider initiated login, they can set<provider-name>.useRelayStateDeepLink for a specific SAML authentication provider and provide a deep link in the RelayState parameter.

Bug fixesedit

  • Loads configuration from EMS-metadata in region-maps #70888
  • Redirects to Logged Out UI on SAML Logout Response #69676

    Previously Kibana redirected users to a default location as the last step of a SAML User/SP Initiated Single Logout (SP SLO), which forced users to log in again when the Login Selector UI was not available. Now, Kibana redirects users to either the Login Selector UI or the Logged Out UI at the end of SP SLO.
