Unauthorized client-side property update in UIDL request handler in Vaadin 10 and 11

Low (Base score 2.6) CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N
CVE entry:


Missing check in UIDL request handler in com.vaadin:flow-server versions 1.0.0 through 1.0.5 (Vaadin 10.0.0 through 10.0.7, and Vaadin 11.0.0 through 11.0.2) allows attacker to update element property values via crafted synchronization message.

See CWE-754: Improper Check for Unusual or Exceptional Conditions


Server-side element property values can be updated from the client in unexpected situations. This would allow the element property value to be updated from the client with a fake synchronization message to the server, affecting logic that reads element property values and expects those to be immutable from the client side.

The server-side value was updated only in cases where client filter was not set, meaning that read-only and disabled element property updates were blocked and not affected by this issue.

Another case where updates were not blocked was when template model had beans in a list; the properties of the beans could be updated when not desired. Any other updates for the template model were not affected by this issue.
