CVSS 3.1 Score 8.0 of 10 (high)


Published Feb 14, 2024


CVE-2023-5123 is a vulnerability affecting the JSON datasource plugin in Grafana, a data visualization and monitoring tool. This plugin allows for retrieving and processing JSON data from a remote endpoint. The vulnerability arises from inadequate sanitization of the path parameter, which can be exploited to include path traversal characters and access paths outside the configured sub-path. The danger lies in the potential for an editor to create a dashboard that references the vulnerable datasource, enabling them to issue queries with path traversal characters and potentially access sensitive information or execute arbitrary code. It is recommended to update to a patched version of the JSON datasource plugin to remediate this vulnerability.
