Improper Neutralization of Special Elements in Output Used by a Downstream Component ('Injection')

CVE-2024-29027

Severity High
Score 9/10

Summary

Parse Server is an open source backend that can be deployed to any infrastructure that can run Node.js. In parse-server versions prior to 6.5.5, and 7.0.x prior to 7.0.0-alpha.29, calling an invalid Parse Server Cloud Function name or Cloud Job name crashes the server and may allow for code injection, internal store manipulation, or remote code execution. The patch added string sanitization for Cloud Function name and Cloud Job name. As a workaround, sanitize the Cloud Function name and Cloud Job name before it reaches Parse Server.

CWE-74 - Injection

Listed as the number one web application security risk on the 'OWASP Top Ten', injection attacks are widespread and dangerous, especially in legacy applications. Injection attacks are a class of vulnerabilities in which an attacker injects untrusted data into a web application that gets processed by an interpreter, altering the program's execution. This can result in data loss/theft, loss of data integrity, denial of service, and even compromising the entire system.
