Hi Howard,

Thanks for forwarding. Although users may be using GitLab in their organizations, the LedgerSMB project itself doesn't use GitLab, so this specific report does not apply to resources used by the project.

Background / What’s happened?

  • GitLab has posted a security advisory and patch to address several vulnerabilities, the most severe of which is CVE-2023-7028.
  • CVE-2023-7028 allows an account take over via the ability to have password reset emails delivered to an unauthenticated email address.
  • Multi-factor authentication should be enabled immediately for all GitLabs users, and self-managed instances should be upgraded to the latest version as soon as possible.
  • Users with multi-factor authentication already enabled may be impacted by a password reset, however an attacker would not be able to take over their account using this vulnerability.
  • GitLab is not aware of any active exploitation of this vulnerability which was discovered via their Bug Bounty program.

Affected versions / applications:
