GitLab < 15.0.5 / 15.1 < 15.1.4 / 15.2 < 15.2.1 Information Disclosure

medium Nessus Plugin ID 163838

Synopsis

A source control application running on the remote web server is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

According to its self-reported version, the instance of GitLab running on the remote web server is prior to 15.0.5, 15.1 prior to 15.1.4, or 15.2 prior to 15.2.1. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability where it may be possible for malicious group or project maintainers to change their corresponding group or project visibility by crafting a malicious POST request.

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

Solution

Upgrade to GitLab version 15.0.5, 15.1.4, 15.2.1, or later.
