Issues Addressed

Below is a list of issues addressed in the Magento Security Patch SUPEE-6482 bundle:

  1. Cross-site Scripting Errors/Poisoning (APPSEC-1030) – Risk Rating: 9.3 Critical
    Non-validated host headers leak information, posing a risk to all customers as HTML or JavaScript code could be injected into that data. The attack allows a user to intercept sessions or inject a fake credit card page form. This affects a limited set of specific server configurations for Commerce editions only.
  2. Cross-site Scripting: Gifting Registry (APPSEC-1022) – Risk Rating: 9.3 Critical
    Attackers can exploit vulnerabilities in cross-site scripting by attacking un-escaped search parameters to steal customer logins. This attack allows them to steal cookies and impersonate users. This affects Commerce editions only.
  3. SOAP API Autoloaded File Inclusion (APPSEC-1019) – Risk Rating: 6.5 Medium
    When a SOAP API request is incorrectly validated, an exploit exists that allows attacker to auto-load code into the servers. Attackers first login with API credentials. After that, if certain PHP versions and/or configuration settings are present, the attacker can load code remotely.
  4. SSRF Vulnerability in WSDL File (APPSEC-1020) – Risk Rating: 5.3 Medium
    Attackers can probe internal network resources or place files in the directory by exploiting the incorrect encoding present in the API passwords.
