General Overview =================== During the security audit of Magento Open Source 2 multiple medium risk stored cross-site scripting vulnerabilities were discovered that could lead to administrator account takeover, putting the website customers and their payment information at risk. 2.

Vulnerability Description ============================ During the security analysis of Magento Open Source 2 prior to 2.0.18 it was discovered that the application returns unescaped and unsanitized user/customer controlled input on direct requests to several application URLs. User/customer controlled information such as customer first and last name, street address, city, company, shipping and billing information are unsanitized and unescaped in an output resulted from a direct request to the following url: User/customer first and last name information is unsanitized and unescaped in an output resulted from a direct request to the following urls: The application will return a text/html response with a json-formatted content. All aforementioned user-controlled input is prone to stored cross-site scripting. The prerequisite for this attack is that the Add Secret Key to URLs option is disabled.
