Vulnerable versions: All prior to v6.7.
When run in server mode, pgAdmin 4 allows users to store files on the
server under individual storage directories. Files such as SQL scripts may
be uploaded through the user interface. The URI to which upload requests
are made fails to validate the upload path to prevent path traversal
techniques being used to store files outside of the storage directory. A
malicious, but authorised and authenticated user can construct an HTTP
request using their existing CSRF token and session cookie to manually
upload files to any location that the operating system user account under
which pgAdmin is running has permission to write.
This issue does not affect users running pgAdmin in desktop mode.
Created pgadmin3 tracking bugs for this issue:
Affects: epel-7 [bug 2063761]
Affects: fedora-34 [bug 2063762]
Affects: fedora-35 [bug 2063763]
should this affect pgadmin3? it looks a lot like only the re-implementation pgadmin4 is affected - pgadmin3 doesn't seem to have a server mode, or to use http at all.
