Clerk, a popular user management tool for developers, patched a vulnerability in version 4.29.3 that could allow unauthorized access to user accounts.

This could allow a bad actor to view, edit or delete user profiles and account information without permission. As Clerk is often used to manage sensitive user data like profiles, emails and passwords, this presents a risk to user privacy and security.

If exploited, the vulnerability with a CVSS score of 9.1 could seriously compromise user accounts. It was patched after being responsibly disclosed to the Clerk team.

All Clerk users are recommended to update to the latest version 4.29.3 or above as soon as possible to protect themselves against any potential attacks targeting this vulnerability. Regularly checking for and applying software updates is also advised to stay protected from similar issues in the future.
