Updates released by Adobe on Tuesday for the Magento Commerce and Open Source editions address multiple critical severity vulnerabilities that could lead to arbitrary code execution.

Updates released by Adobe on Tuesday for the Magento Commerce and Open Source editions address multiple critical severity vulnerabilities that could lead to arbitrary code execution.

A total of six critical vulnerabilities were patched in the popular e-commerce platform, none of which requires authentication for a successful exploitation. All of them could be exploited to execute code on vulnerable systems.

These vulnerabilities include four command injection bugs (tracked as CVE-2020-9576, CVE-2020-9578, CVE-2020-9582, and CVE-2020-9583), and two security mitigation bypass flaws (tracked as CVE-2020-9579 and CVE-2020-9580).

The new Magento updates also include patches for four vulnerabilities considered important. Three of these (CVE-2020-9577, CVE-2020-9581, and CVE-2020-9584) are stored Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) flaws leading to sensitive information disclosure, while the fourth (CVE-2020-9588) is an Observable Timing Discrepancy bug leading to signature verification bypass.

Additionally, Adobe released patches for three moderate severity vulnerabilities. These include two defense-in-depth security mitigation issues (CVE-2020-9585 and CVE-2020-9591) that could lead to code execution and unauthorized access to the admin panel, respectively, and an authorization bypass issue (CVE-2020-9587) leading to potentially unauthorized product discounts.

The bugs were addressed with the release of Magento Commerce and Magento Open Source 2.3.4-p2 and 2.3.5-p1, Magento Enterprise Edition, and Magento Community Edition

This week, Adobe also released patches for vulnerabilities in Bridge and Illustrator products, including many that have a critical severity rating.
