Fix GitLab Authentication vulnerability

We have been made aware of a vulnerability in our Confluence Cloud app “DMN Modeler Enterprise” by a researcher of the Marketplace Bug Bounty program relevant for customers who have connected a GitLab instance to the app. This issue existed before the mentioned release date, the 19th of October 2023. All installations have been updated automatically and the issue thus no longer exists. No action needs to be taken on your part.

This vulnerability has been rated critical, according to the scale published on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS).

If connected with a GitLab project, our app is configured with a client secret. This secret authenticates our app with GitLab. Only logged in Confluence users were able to access this client secret. The client secret itself can not be used to access GitLab, but instead needs to be coupled with an access token which authenticates a specific GitLab user and lets our app act on behalf of this user. This access token was not accessible for anyone but the user themselves. Thus, no unauthenticated party was able to access any GitLab data.

Remediation actions have been taken and the vulnerability has been fixed by precisely following the GitLab procedure for implementing a safe OAuth 2.0 flow for authenticating as a third party app. This solution has then been discussed with our security experts and a repeated test by the researcher who first reported the issue was requested.

Based on our investigation, the vulnerability has thus not led to any impact on our customers or any disclosure of data.

Still, the client secret should not have been accessible and we want you to know that we take this issue very seriously. We are conducting a review of our internal processes and have already implemented additional security reviews - tool guided and by our security experts.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments you might have.
