Allocation of Resources Without Limits or Throttling


Severity High
Score 7.5/10


The package silverstripe/graphql serves Silverstripe data as GraphQL representations. In versions 4.1.1 and 4.2.2, an attacker could use a specially crafted graphql query to execute a Denial of Service attack against a website which has a publicly exposed graphql endpoint. This mostly affects websites with particularly "large/complex" graphql schemas.
