CWE-89 Open this link in a new tab

How to fix?

Upgrade sequelize to version 3.12.1 or higher.


sequelize is a multi dialect ORM for Node.JS/io.js. Affected versions of the package are vulnerable to SQL Injection via the user search by typing the name they want to search for and the application then executes:

User.findAll( { where: { name: req.body.name } } )

a malicious attacker may exploit this to find the users password by entering $password$. This could be avoided by specifying the exact column to search: the user column.
