SourceCVE-2023-50857

FunnelKit Recover WooCommerce Cart Abandonment, Newsletter, Email Marketing, and Marketing Automation software contains a SQL injection vulnerability that could allow attackers to compromise user accounts and data.

SQL injection occurs when user-supplied input is not properly sanitized before being used in a SQL query. A malicious actor could craft specially formatted input containing SQL code that gets executed on the backend database. This allows them to view, modify or delete data like user credentials, emails and marketing campaigns.

The vulnerability is present in versions 2.6.1 and below of FunnelKit’s tools. SQL injection is a common attack technique that has plagued many web applications over the years. Attackers scan for vulnerable sites and attempt to exploit any SQL injection flaws they find.

To protect yourself, FunnelKit users should update to the latest version immediately. Always keep your software up-to-date as developers issue patches. You should also avoid reusing passwords across different services in case one site suffers a data breach. Monitor your accounts for any unusual activity and enable two-factor authentication if available. Taking these basic steps can help prevent account takeovers and data theft.
