Discussion on CVE-2023–35866

On June 19, 2023 an alleged KeePassXC vulnerability with the identifier CVE-2023–35866 was posted against KeePassXC versions up to 2.7.5. As the developers of KeePassXC, we do not consider the issue a vulnerability and have filed a request for the CVE to be rejected. Additional information can be found in the discussion on GitHub.

The root of the argument submitted by the CVE author is that an attacker with unfettered access to an already unlocked database could export or change the password without requiring the original credentials. Where this is true, there are numerous barriers to actually executing this attack sequence. In addition, having lost control of your computer in this manner would mean the attacker could execute any number of security compromises against your KeePassXC database, regardless of requiring credentials prior to export or credential change.

At this time, we are not planning any drastic changes to the program to address this submission. We are also monitoring the request to reject/dispute this CVE on the grounds it is not actually a vulnerability in our software. Information on mitigation and other factors is included after the break.

KeePassXC Audit Report

An audit of KeePassXC has been on the wish list since we started this project over six years ago. Today we are happy to announce the release of an audit conducted by Zaur Molotnikov, an independent security consultant, that was completed on January 19, 2023 against KeePassXC 2.7.4. This audit was conducted free of charge to the KeePassXC Team and the findings and writeup were reviewed for correctness.

KeePassXC 2.7.1 released

Today, we are releasing KeePassXC 2.7.1, the first maintenance update for the 2.7 stable series.

The release fixes multiple issues with Auto-Type, performance problems with the legacy AES-KDF, and several other minor bugs. We also improved the entry preview panel layout and paved the way for first-class Flatpak support on Linux. Flatpak, thus far, has been a downstream third-party distribution, but with the new release, we upstreamed patches needed for building KeePassXC as a Flatpak, and it will eventually supersede Snap as our preferred Linux distribution channel. Our experience shows that Flatpak has been a more stable platform than Snap, which has had many deployment bugs over the years, so we decided to deprecate it in favour of Flatpak. If you are experiencing problems with the current Snap, we recommend you switch to one of our other two supported Linux packages or to Flatpak once we announce an official Flathub channel.
