Grafana Forward OAuth Identity Token can allow users to access some data sources

When a data source has the Forward OAuth Identity feature enabled, sending a query to that datasource with an API token (and no other user credentials) will forward the OAuth Identity of the most recently logged-in user. This can allow API token holders to retrieve data for which they may not have intended access. Impact All of the following must be true: * The Grafana instance has data sources that support the Forward OAuth Identity feature. Graphite users, for example. * Some data sources are not susceptible, like Prometheus, as they do not have support for this feature. * The option being available is not sufficient enough to determine if the data source is susceptible. * The Grafana instance has a data source with the Forward OAuth Identity feature toggled on. * The Grafana instance has OAuth enabled. * The Grafana instance has usable API keys. Patches The following Grafana versions have been patched: * v8.3.4 * v7.5.13 Workarounds Administrators of Grafana instances can limit the availability of API tokens.
