Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales is a customer relationship management (CRM) tool used by many businesses. Unfortunately, researchers have discovered a spoofing vulnerability in Dynamics 365 Sales that could allow attackers to access users’ data.

The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2024-21328, has a CVSS score of 7.6 out of 10. This means it is a high severity issue. It allows an attacker to spoof requests to the Dynamics 365 Sales web application. By spoofing the requests, they could potentially access sensitive user data and accounts without authentication.

Attackers could exploit this vulnerability by crafting specially crafted HTTP requests that appear to come from a legitimate user or administrator. If the requests are not verified properly, the attacker may be able to retrieve confidential information like contacts, emails, documents and more. They could also modify or delete data.

The best way for Dynamics 365 Sales users to protect themselves is to keep their software updated. Microsoft has released a patch to fix this spoofing issue, so installing the latest updates is critical.

While this vulnerability affects the Dynamics 365 Sales software, being diligent about cybersecurity best practices can help prevent many attacks. Maintain strong passwords, enable multi-factor authentication when possible, and be on the lookout for any suspicious account activity.
