Security Updates for Azure DevOps Server (June 2019)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 125833
SynopsisThe Azure DevOps Server is affected by an XSRF vulnerability.
DescriptionThe Azure DevOps Server is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site request forgery (XSRF) vulnerability:
- A spoofing vulnerability exists in Azure DevOps Server when it improperly handles requests to authorize applications, resulting in a cross-site request forgery. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could bypass OAuth protections and register an application on behalf of the targeted user. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need to create a page specifically designed to cause a cross-site request. The attacker would then need to convince a targeted user to click a link to the malicious page. (CVE-2019-0996)
SolutionMicrosoft has released Azure DevOps Server 2019 Update 0.1 to address this issue.
