Improper authorization check on removing shares (NC-SA-2016-007)
10th October 2016
Risk level: Low
CVSS v3 Base Score: 2.6 (AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)
HackerOne report: 153905
The Sharing Backend as implemented in Nextcloud does differentiate between shares to users and groups. In case of a received group share, users should be able to unshare the file to themselves but not to the whole group. The previous API implementation did simply unshare the file to all users in the group.
- Nextcloud Server < 9.0.54 (CVE-2016-9464)
- Nextcloud Server < 10.0.0 (CVE-2016-9464)
Additional access control checks have been added to the sharing API.
It is recommended that all instances are upgraded to Nextcloud 9.0.54 or 10.0.0.
