CVE-2023-36830 is a vulnerability in SQLFluff, a SQL linter. Versions prior to 2.1.2 allow untrusted users with access to config files to execute arbitrary Python code via macros using the `library_path` config value. This could pose a security risk in larger user bases or when SQLFluff is bundled into another tool where developers want users to supply their own rule configuration. The vulnerability can be remediated by upgrading to version 2.1.2, which introduces the `--library-path` option to overwrite the `library_path` argument provided in the config files and prevent this attack route. This vulnerability has a medium severity rating and a base score of 6.3, potentially impacting confidentiality, integrity, and availability of affected systems.
