1) Dangerous file upload

EUVDB-ID: #VU71748

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 4.7 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2023-23937

CWE-ID: CWE-434 - Unrestricted Upload of File with Dangerous Type

Exploit availability: No


The vulnerability allows a remote user to bypass implemented security restrictions.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of the file content-type during file upload when updating user profile. A remote user bypass security check by adding a valid signature (p.e. GIF89) and sending any invalid content-type. This could allow an authenticated user to upload HTML files with JS content that will be executed in the context of the domain.


Install updates from vendor's website.
