SourceCVE-2024-22309

A serious vulnerability has been discovered in QuantumCloud’s ChatBot with AI product. Security researchers have identified a “Deserialization of Untrusted Data” issue affecting versions 5.1.0 and below.

This vulnerability occurs when untrusted data is deserialized, potentially allowing attackers to execute arbitrary code. Attackers could exploit this by crafting special payloads that are then deserialized by the vulnerable ChatBot software.

ChatBot with AI uses object serialization to save session data to storage. If an attacker can supply a specially crafted payload during the deserialization process, it may be possible to execute code or commands on the system with the privileges of the ChatBot application.

If successfully exploited, an attacker could obtain sensitive information, install malware or take control of users’ QuantumCloud accounts.

To stay protected, users should update their ChatBot with AI installation to the latest version immediately. QuantumCloud has released version 5.1.1 which fixes this issue. Users are also advised to use strong and unique passwords for their QuantumCloud accounts.

Regularly checking for and applying software updates is one of the best ways to protect yourself from security vulnerabilities like this. Staying vigilant about your online security and enabling two-factor authentication wherever possible helps reduce risks to your accounts and personal information.
