The way build artifacts are stored by the GitHub Actions platform could enable attackers to inject malicious code into software projects with CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous delivery) workflows that don’t perform sufficient filtering when downloading artifacts.

“We have discovered that when transferring artifacts between different workflows, there is a major risk for artifact poisoning — a technique in which attackers replace the content of a legitimate artifact with a modified malicious one and thereby initiate a supply chain attack,” researchers from supply chain security firm Legit Security said in an analysis of the issue.
