CVE-2023-45147 is a vulnerability that affects Discourse, an open-source community platform. In certain versions of Discourse, any user can create a topic and add custom fields to it, which can pose a security risk depending on the installed plugins and how they use these custom fields.

The problem has been addressed in the latest version of Discourse (version 3.1.1 for the stable branch or 3.2.0.beta2 for the beta branch). Users are advised to update to these versions or disable any plugins that access topic custom fields if they are unable to upgrade. The potential danger posed by this vulnerability to an organization is relatively low, with a base severity rating of LOW and no confidentiality impact identified.
