Relevant Vulnerabilities

Authenticated File Upload

Unauthenticated File Upload

Unauthenticated File Upload

These plugins have critical vulnerabilities that when exploited would give an attacker complete control over your website. All of them are closed, which means no new installs are allowed but old installs will work without any issues, thus, please check if you have any of them installed (even if it’s not activated) and remove them from your plugins folder.

Unauthenticated Order Status Manipulation

Versions < 3.3 of this plugin have a bug that when exploited could cause unnecessary damage to your online store. An unauthenticated attacker would be able to change the status of all the orders making it difficult to handle them since the data will not be reliable. On November 23 the developer released a new version.
