Description Pedro Sampaio 2020-03-09 21:42:54 UTC
InfluxDB 0.9.5 has Reflected XSS in the Write Data module.



Comment 1 Mark Cooper 2020-03-10 23:44:15 UTC
This cross-site-scripting (XSS) vulnerability affects the admin GUI of InfluxDB. 

Furthermore, in InfluxDB v1.2 the admin GUI was deprecated and disabled by default (thanks for the find jpadman).
Ref: https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.2/tools/web_admin/

OpenShift ServiceMesh vendors InfluxDB v1.2.3+ in servicesh-prometheus and is not vulnerable. Plus the vendored code, is just the client libraries for InfluxDB.

Comment 3 Mark Cooper 2020-03-11 01:50:26 UTC
The following OpenShift containers only vendor in the InfluxDB client version, not vulnerable to the admin GUI vulnerability:
 - openshift/ose-ovn-kubernetes
 - openshift/ose-prometheus
