Summary

Apache CouchDB is prone to a privilege escalation vulnerability.

Insight

Insight

A malicious user with permission to create documents in a database is able to attach a HTML attachment to a document. If a CouchDB admin opens that attachment in a browser, e.g. via the CouchDB admin interface Fauxton, any JavaScript code embedded in that HTML attachment will be executed within the security context of that admin. A similar route is available with the already deprecated _show and _list functionality.

Affected Software

Apache CouchDB version 3.1.1 and prior.

Detection Method
