jQuery < 3.4.0 Prototype Pollution

medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 98590

Synopsis

jQuery < 3.4.0 Prototype Pollution

Description

According to its self-reported version number, jQuery is prior to 3.4.0. Therefore, it may be affected by a prototype pollution vulnerability due to 'extend' function that can be tricked into modifying the prototype of 'Object'.

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

Solution

Upgrade to jQuery version 3.4.0 or later.
