Microsoft Dynamics is an ERP (enterprise resource planning) and CRM (customer relationship management) software suite used by many businesses worldwide to manage their operations. Unfortunately, researchers have discovered an information disclosure vulnerability in older versions of Microsoft Dynamics Business Central and NAV software that could allow hackers to access sensitive company data.

The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2024-21380, has a CVSS score of 8 out of 10 indicating it is a serious issue.

The best way to protect yourself is to install the latest updates for your Microsoft Dynamics deployment. Microsoft has released patches addressing this issue, so make sure your software and all components are fully updated. You should also consider enabling multi-factor authentication if available for additional login security. Monitor your systems and networks for any suspicious activity.
