Aug 28, 2014

Today we released GitLab Community Edition 7.2.1 and GitLab Enterprise Edition 7.2.1. This is a security release which remedies an XSS vulnerability in GitLab. In addition to this 7.2.1 makes the tag-to-label migration for users upgrading from GitLab 7.1 and earlier more robust.

Affected versions

This XSS vulnerability affects GitLab 7.2.0 and earlier.

Impact

The vulnerability patched by this release allows an attacker to carry out a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack against users with a session on an affected GitLab server. In order to exploit this vulnerability, the attacker needs to have commit access to a repository on the affected GitLab server.

Upgrading

Omnibus-gitlab packages for GitLab 7.2.1 are now available. To upgrade an installation from source please use the upgrader or the patch update guide.
