CVE-2022-0144 - Improper Privilege Management (IPM)

Severity: Low2022-03-10

Security Advisories


The shelljs package is vulnerable due to Improper Privilege Management. The execSync() function in the exec.js file does not properly ensure if a user is authorized to read and write to the paramFiles, stdoutFile and stderrFile before allowing the user to access them. A local attacker with low privileges can exploit this behavior to obtain sensitive information from the aforementioned files. The attacker can also create a stdoutFile or stderrFile first, which will crash the exec process when it tries to write to these files, resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS) condition.

The Oxygen Content Fusion product incorporates shelljs as a third-party library. This advisory was opened to address the potential impact of this third-party library vulnerability.
