FreeBSD : Gitlab -- Vulnerabilities (b2caae55-dc38-11ee-96dc-001b217b3468)

high Nessus Plugin ID 191741



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 multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the b2caae55-dc38-11ee-96dc-001b217b3468 advisory.

- An authorization bypass vulnerability was discovered in GitLab affecting versions 11.3 prior to 16.7.7, 16.7.6 prior to 16.8.4, and 16.8.3 prior to 16.9.2. An attacker could bypass CODEOWNERS by utilizing a crafted payload in an old feature branch to perform malicious actions. (CVE-2024-0199)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability was discovered in GitLab affecting versions 16.8 prior to 16.8.4 and 16.9 prior to 16.9.2. It was possible for a user with custom role of `manage_group_access_tokens` to rotate group access tokens with owner privileges. (CVE-2024-1299)

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