FreeBSD : Grafana -- Privilege escalation (db895ed0-6298-11ed-9ca2-6c3be5272acd)

high Nessus Plugin ID 167325



The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the db895ed0-6298-11ed-9ca2-6c3be5272acd advisory.

- Grafana is an open-source platform for monitoring and observability. Versions starting with 9.2.0 and less than 9.2.4 contain a race condition in the authentication middlewares logic which may allow an unauthenticated user to query an administration endpoint under heavy load. This issue is patched in 9.2.4.
There are no known workarounds. (CVE-2022-39328)

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


Update the affected packages.
