JSON:API - Critical - Unsupported - SA-CONTRIB-2020-010

Project: JSON:API
Version: 8.x-1.26
Date: 2020-April-15
Security risk: Critical 15∕25 
Vulnerability: Unsupported

Description

This module provides a JSON API standards-compliant API for accessing and manipulating Drupal content and configuration entities.

The security team and module maintainers are marking this project unsupported. Both the 8.x-1.x and 8.x-2.x versions are unsupported, and users of either version are strongly encouraged to upgrade to a supported version of Drupal core, which includes a supported version of JSON:API.

The eventual removal of security coverage for the JSON:API contributed module was announced with the release of JSON:API 8.x-1.22 on 28 June 2018.

Additionally, there is a known security issue with the 8.x-1.x branch of the project that will not be fixed by the maintainers. That issue is not present in the 8.x-2.x branch of the project, nor is it present in Drupal core.

Solution

Users of the module are encouraged to upgrade to a supported version of Drupal core, which is distributed with a supported version of JSON:API.

If your site is currently using a release from the 8.x-1.x branch of the module, you may be required to apply fixes for the breaking changes documented here.
