Exposure of Sensitive Information to an Unauthorized Actor


Severity High
Score 8.2/10


Parse Server is an open source backend that can be deployed to any infrastructure that can run Node.js. In the affected versions, parse-server LiveQuery does not remove protected fields in classes, passing them to the client. The LiveQueryController now removes protected fields from the client response. Users are advised to upgrade. Users unable t upgrade should use `Parse.Cloud.afterLiveQueryEvent` to manually remove protected fields. This issue affects versions through 4.10.12, 5.0.0-alpha.1 through to 5.2.3, and 5.3.0-alpha.1 through 5.3.0-alpha.18.
