SourceCVE-2024-21327

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement is a CRM tool used by many businesses. Unfortunately, researchers have discovered a vulnerability in it that could allow hackers to launch cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

XSS attacks work by injecting malicious scripts into web pages viewed by other users. For example, a hacker could craft a specially malicious link that looks normal but contains hidden code. If a user on a vulnerable system clicks the link, the hidden code could hijack their login session and steal sensitive data like their account credentials.

In this case, the vulnerability was found in how Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement handles certain inputs on pages. By crafting a link with malicious code, a hacker could exploit the vulnerability to execute scripts on other users’ browsers who visit sites running the vulnerable software. This would potentially allow the attacker to hijack sessions and access any data available to the compromised account.

The good news is there are some things you can do to protect yourself until Microsoft issues a patch to fix the vulnerability:

– Be cautious of any links or emails received from unknown senders. Avoid clicking links unless you are certain of the source.

– Keep your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement software updated with the latest patches. This will help ensure any vulnerabilities are addressed.

– Use strong and unique passwords for your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement account. This will make it harder for hackers to guess your credentials if your account is targeted.

By taking some basic precautions, you can help ensure your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement data and account remains secure until this vulnerability is addressed. Stay vigilant against potential phishing attempts as well.
