Denial of Service (DoS)

  • Vulnerable module: apollo-upload-server
  • Introduced through: apollo-upload-server@4.0.0

Detailed paths

  • Introduced through: apollo-upload-server@4.0.0
    Remediation: Upgrade to apollo-upload-server@7.0.0.

Overview

apollo-upload-server is a Middleware and an Upload scalar to add support for GraphQL multipart requests (file uploads via queries and mutations) to various Node.js GraphQL servers.

Note This package has been deprecated.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Denial of Service (DoS). Malformed requests that have the operations field, without following map and file fields would crash the server.

Details

Denial of Service (DoS) describes a family of attacks, all aimed at making a system inaccessible to its intended and legitimate users.

Unlike other vulnerabilities, DoS attacks usually do not aim at breaching security. Rather, they are focused on making websites and services unavailable to genuine users resulting in downtime.

One popular Denial of Service vulnerability is DDoS (a Distributed Denial of Service), an attack that attempts to clog network pipes to the system by generating a large volume of traffic from many machines.

When it comes to open source libraries, DoS vulnerabilities allow attackers to trigger such a crash or crippling of the service by using a flaw either in the application code or from the use of open source libraries.

Two common types of DoS vulnerabilities:

  • High CPU/Memory Consumption- An attacker sending crafted requests that could cause the system to take a disproportionate amount of time to process. For example, commons-fileupload:commons-fileupload.

  • Crash - An attacker sending crafted requests that could cause the system to crash. For Example, npm ws package

Remediation

Upgrade apollo-upload-server to version 7.0.0 or higher.
