New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


A cloud native registry installed on the remote host is affected multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of VMware Harbor installed on the remote host is 1.7.x or 1.8.x prior to 1.8.6 or 1.9.x prior to 1.9.3. It is, therefore, affected multiple vulnerabilities, including the following:

- A privilege escalation vulnerability that allows an authenticated, normal user to gain administrative account privileges by making an API call to modify the email address of a specific user. An attacker can reset the password for that email address to gain access to the administrative account. This vulnerability exists because the affected Harbor API fails to enforce proper permissions and scope on the API request to modify an email address. (CVE-2019-19023)

- A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability caused by the Harbor web interface failing to implement protection mechanisms against CSRF. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by luring an authenticated user onto a prepared third-party website, in order to execute any action the platform in the context of the currently authenticated victim. (CVE-2019-19025)

- An SQL injection (SQLi) vulnerability which a remote, authenticated user with Project-Admin capabilities can exploit by sending a specially crafted SQL payload in order to read secrets from the underlying database or conduct privilege escalation. (CVE-2019-19029) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update to VMware Harbor version 1.8.6, 1.9.3 or later.
