CWE ID 457


CVE-2024-26147 is a vulnerability in Helm, a package manager for Charts for Kubernetes. Versions prior to 3.14.2 are affected by an uninitialized variable vulnerability that occurs when parsing index and plugin yaml files missing expected content. This vulnerability can lead to a panic in Helm if either the index.yaml file or the plugins plugin.yaml file is missing metadata. The impact of this vulnerability is significant, as it affects functions related to adding a repository and all Helm functions if a malicious plugin is added. The issue has been resolved in Helm v3.14.2, and affected users can manually remove any malicious plugins from the filesystem. If using earlier versions of the Helm SDK, calls to affected functions can use recover to catch the panic.
