General Overview =================== During the security audit of Magento Open Source 2 a stored cross-site scripting vulnerability was discovered that could lead to administrator account takeover by a lower privileged administrator, putting the website customers and their payment information at risk. 2. Software Overview ==================== Magento is an ecommerce platform built on open source technology which provides online merchants with a flexible shopping cart system, as well as control over the look, content and functionality of their online store. Magento offers powerful marketing, search engine optimization, and catalog-management tools. It is a leading enterprise-class eCommerce platform, empowering over 200,000 online retailers. Homepage: 3. Vulnerability Description ============================ During the security analysis of Magento Open Source 2 it was discovered that a lower privileged admin with access to Products editing can upload a file for a downloadable product using a random extension (ex. .aaa). Extensions like .html or .php are disallowed but if the content of the file is HTML the application will serve the file as such as there is no content disposition header set to force the download. The attacker can then use the link by enticing the higher privileged admin to open it. Unlike a typical XSS which is often limited by length and payload type, this gives an attacker a whole HTML file to work with. 4. Solution =========== Vendor fixed the reported security issues and released a new version. All users are strongly advised to update to the latest available version. 5.
