Please update [email protected] to fix security issue!

Hello,

got informed about a security issue in n8n which just got fixed:

It is very severe, for that reason please update to the latest version (0.55.0) as soon as possible.

An attacker could gain access to your data if he would:

  1. be aware of this issue
  2. knows under which URL your n8n instance is reachable

If you currently run a version < 0.52.0 please check the breaking changes file first:

I am very sorry about this issue! I can for sure not promise that there will never be an issue again but I can promise that I will always do my best to fix them asap.
