Critical severity vulnerability was found in bundler spree_auth_devise (RubyGems) .
CSRF vulnerability that allows user account takeover.
All applications using any version of the frontend component of
spree_auth_devise are affected if
protect_from_forgery method is both:
- Executed whether as:
- A before_action callback (the default)
- A prepend_before_action (option prepend: true given) before the :load_object hook in Spree::UserController (most likely order to find).
- Configured to use :null_session or :reset_session strategies (:null_session is the default in case the no strategy is given, but rails –new generated skeleton use :exception).
That means that applications that haven’t been configured differently from what it’s generated with Rails aren’t affected.
Thanks @waiting-for-dev for reporting and providing a patch
Spree 4.1 users should update to spree_auth_devise 4.1.1
If possible, change your strategy to :exception:
class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base protect_from_forgery with: :exception end
Add the following to
config/application.rb to at least run the
:exception strategy on the affected controller:
config.after_initialize do Spree::UsersController.protect_from_forgery with: :exception end
