SourceCVE-2023-49814

The software Symbiostock contains a vulnerability that could allow attackers to compromise user accounts. The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2023-49814, is an “Unrestricted Upload of File with Dangerous Type” issue.

This means that a malicious actor could upload a specially crafted file type to Symbiostock that would then be executed on the server, allowing the attacker to run code or access files they shouldn’t have permission to. Common filetypes that could be abused include executables, scripts and archives containing either of those.

If exploited, a threat actor may be able to access or delete user data, install malware, ransomware or other programs. They could also access administrator controls to gain elevated access on the system.

The good news is Symbiostock has now addressed this issue up to version 6.0.0. However, if you are running an earlier version you should update immediately. It’s also recommended to use strong and unique passwords for all accounts. Be cautious of any unexpected file downloads or emails asking you to open attachments while logged into Symbiostock.

By updating your Symbiostock software and following basic security practices, you can help protect your account and data from this and other vulnerabilities. Stay vigilant and always use caution when downloading files or opening unexpected email attachments.
