GitLab 12.10.x < 14.6.5 / 14.7.x < 14.7.4 / 14.8.x < 14.8.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 158560


A source control application running on the remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version, the instance of GitLab running on the remote web server is prior to 12.10.x prior to 14.6.5, 14.7.x prior to 14.7.4, or 14.8.x prior to 14.8.2. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities:

- An unauthorized user can steal runner registration tokens using an information disclosure vulnerability by using quick commands. (CVE-2022-0735)

- An unauthorized user can steal environment variables using specially crafted email addresses due to improper input validation in sendmail. (CVE-2022-0741)

- An unauthorized user can trick users into executing arbitrary commands due to inaccurate display of Snippet files with special characters. (CVE-2022-0751)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to GitLab version 14.6.5, 14.7.4, 14.8.2 or later.
