Prompt Injection Flaw in Vanna AI Exposes Databases to RCE Attacks

Researchers studying cybersecurity have found a high-severity security vulnerability in the Vanna.AI framework that might be used to remotely execute code by using prompt injection methods. According to supply chain security company JFrog, the vulnerability, listed as CVE-2024-5565 (CVSS score: 8.1), is related to a case of prompt injection in the "ask" function that may be used to fool the library into executing arbitrary commands. A large language model (LLM) is used by Vanna, a Python-based machine learning toolkit, to translate "just asking questions" (also known as prompts) into an equivalent SQL query, allowing users to converse with their SQL database and gain insights. The swift adoption of generative artificial intelligence (AI) models in recent times has highlighted the...
