** DISPUTED ** Issue in KeePassXC 2.7.7 allows an attacker (who has the privileges of the victim) to recover some passwords stored in the .kdbx database via a memory dump. NOTE: the vendor disputes this because memory-management constraints make this unavoidable in the current design and other realistic designs.


Priority reason:
Mitigated by default ptrace restrictions in Ubuntu
This vulnerability requires the attacker to dump the memory of
the keepassxc process - in Ubuntu the default ptrace restrictions ensure
that in general this cannot be done by other processes even belonging to
the same user which lowers the severity of this vulnerability
