Howdy everybody,

We've just released Redis 7.0 - a big "thank you" to everyone who helped in the making and to those of you who will put it to good use :)

The release is available from the Redis repository and our download page.

Before upgrading, please review the full release notes for potentially breaking changes.

The changes in the GA release compared to Redis 7.0-RC3 are as follows:

Security Fixes

  • (CVE-2022-24736) An attacker attempting to load a specially crafted Lua script can cause NULL pointer dereference which will result with a crash of the redis-server process. This issue affects all versions of Redis.
    [reported by Aviv Yahav].
  • (CVE-2022-24735) By exploiting weaknesses in the Lua script execution environment, an attacker with access to Redis can inject Lua code that will execute with the (potentially higher) privileges of another Redis user.
    [reported by Aviv Yahav].
