Learn more about GitLab Release 8.12.3, 8.11.8, 8.10.11 and 8.9.11 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE)

Today we are releasing versions 8.12.3, 8.11.8, 8.10.11 and 8.9.11 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

Version 8.12.3 contains some security fixes for GitLab, plus fixes for minor regressions. Version 8.11.8, 8.10.11, and 8.9.11 only contain the security fixes.

If you're wondering what happened to 8.12.2, good eye! That version was accidentally packaged without including some fixes for the CE version.

The new Global Code Search feature introduced in GitLab 8.12.0 was returning titles of projects, milestones, issues, and merge requests from internal projects to anonymous. See #1046 for more information.

Thanks to Christian Bönning for reporting this issue.

API: Restrictive CORS policy

Previous versions set Access-Control-Allow-Credentials: true for all origins in their CORS policy. Combined with #18302, this resulted in a JavaScript request spoofing vulnerability. See #22450 for more information.

API: CSRF protection

Issue #18302 also introduced a vulnerability allowing third-party websites to spoof API requests using forms, which is mitigated in these releases. See #22435 for more information.

Wrong permission enforcement in ForkService

A user with the "Guest" role could fork a project, and therefore gain access to the code, even though this was restricted to the "Reporter" level and above. See #18028 for more information.

Upgrade barometer

This version has no migrations and should not require any downtime.

Please be aware that by default the Omnibus packages will stop, run migrations, and start again, no matter how “big” or “small” the upgrade is. This behavior can be changed by adding a /etc/gitlab/skip-auto-migrations file.
