Hackers Accessed Magento Marketplace User Data

Adobe-owned e-commerce platform Magento recently informed some Magento Marketplace users that an unauthorized third-party had gained access to their account information.

Adobe-owned e-commerce platform Magento recently informed some Magento Marketplace users that an unauthorized third-party had gained access to their account information.

According to Magento, the attackers exploited a vulnerability in the Magento Marketplace, which allowed them to access information such as name, email address, MageID, shipping and billing address, phone number, and some commercial information (i.e. percentages for payments to developers).

The company says the breach does not impact passwords or payment card data, and claims that the Magento core services and products are also not affected.

The breach was discovered on November 21 and the vulnerability that allowed hackers to gain access to Magento systems has been patched, the company told customers via email.

It’s unclear how many users are impacted and Adobe has not provided any information on the type of vulnerability exploited in the attack.

The Magento Marketplace was temporarily shut down until the issue was addressed, but it’s now back online.

“We take these issues seriously and are committed to helping ensure our platforms are secure. We are reviewing our processes to help prevent these types of events from occurring in the future,” Adobe’s Jason Woosley said in a blog post disclosing the security incident.

One month ago, Adobe admitted that information on Creative Cloud customers was exposed due to a misconfiguration. Passwords or financial information were not exposed in that incident either.
