How the OpenSSL vulnerability affects Grafana Labs

November 2, 2022 2 min

OpenSSL have released details for CVE-2022-3786 and CVE-2022-3602 in OpenSSL v3.x with impact assessed by OpenSSL as HIGH. In response, Grafana Labs has reviewed our projects and products, and here is what we found.

How it affects Grafana binary releases, including Grafana Agent

The majority of Grafana Labs’ core software is written in Go and relies on Go’s built-in TLS implementation. This implementation is independent of OpenSSL and does not contain the same vulnerabilities. As such, the binary releases of Grafana, Grafana Agent, Grafana Tempo, Grafana Loki, and Grafana Mimir are not impacted by these OpenSSL CVEs. 

How it affects Grafana Cloud

In Grafana Cloud, we rely upon Cloud providers and off-the-shelf software rather than implementing SSL/TLS within our own software. We have confirmed that our Cloud platforms are protected by non-impacted or appropriately patched SSL/TLS implementations.

How it affects containerized releases (Grafana Agent, Grafana Enterprise, and containerized OSS packages)

In many cases, we also offer containerized releases of our software. These releases may contain vulnerable versions of OpenSSL, but we do not have any evidence to indicate that they are vulnerable to remote code execution as a result of these vulnerabilities. We will release updated versions imminently. 

All Grafana Labs packages containing potentially vulnerable OpenSSL dependencies will be patched and new releases will be made public as upstream patches become available.
