CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-1529

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input within the NotificationsDB module. A remote attacker can trick the victim to visit a specially crafted web page, which passes malicious messages to the parent process where the contents is used to double-index into a JavaScript object. As a result, an attacker can perform prototype pollution and execute arbitrary JavaScript code in the privileged parent process.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to compromise the affected system.

Mitigation
