Identifiers

Package Slug

pypi/indy-node

Vulnerability

Improper Authentication

Description

Indy Node is the server portion of a distributed ledger purpose-built for decentralized identity. In versions 1.12.4 and prior, the pool-upgrade request handler in Indy-Node allows an improperly authenticated attacker to remotely execute code on nodes within the network. The pool-upgrade request handler in Indy-Node 1.12.5 has been updated to properly authenticate pool-upgrade transactions before any processing is performed by the request handler. The transactions are further sanitized to prevent remote code execution. As a workaround, endorsers should not create DIDs for untrusted users. A vulnerable ledger should configure auth_rules to prevent new DIDs from being written to the ledger until the network can be upgraded.

Affected Versions

All versions up to 1.12.4

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.12.5 or above.
