Adobe released an emergency advisory to inform Commerce and Magento users of a critical zero-day vulnerability that has been exploited in attacks.
The flaw, tracked as CVE-2022-24086 and assigned a CVSS score of 9.8, has been described as an improper input validation issue that can lead to arbitrary code execution. This vulnerability can be exploited without authentication.
The security hole affects the Magento open source and Adobe Commerce e-commerce platforms, specifically versions 2.4.3-p1 and earlier and 2.3.7-p2 and earlier. Adobe has developed patches, which are delivered as MDVA-43395_EE_2.4.3-p1_v1.
The software giant says CVE-2022-24086 has been exploited in the wild in very limited attacks targeting Adobe Commerce merchants.
E-commerce software vulnerabilities are typically targeted in mass attacks. One recent example involved more than 500 online stores powered by Magento 1 targeted by cybercriminals whose goal was to plant web skimmers designed to harvest user data. The attackers exploited a combination of flaws and leveraged the fact that Magento 1 no longer receives security updates.
