We have all heard and witnessed that Magento comes with some predefined tools which are intended to secure your store from SQL injections. Yet the security researchers have found some vulnerabilities, which can potentially cause harm.

What is the nature of the Attack?

The vulnerability consists of compromising a chain of liability which allows malicious injections and unauthenticated attacker to execute random PHP/SQL codes on E-commerce websites. In layman’s terms, this allows the attacker to bypass all your security mechanism, then get the access to your store and the whole database. It lets the attacker then create a new admin account in your existing one, or lets them access and steal critical information like credit card etc. There are many other harmful things that SQL injections can cause to your Ecommerce business and your store’s customers. What is of more concern is the fact that this attack is not limited to any specific plugin or theme. It is present at the core Magento and it ends up affecting any default installation of community and enterprise editions both.
