Hakan Demiray Sayfa Sayac, a popular website hit counter tool, is affected by a critical deserialization of untrusted data vulnerability according to a new CVE assigned (CVE-2023-49778). This vulnerability has a CVSS score of 10 out of 10, meaning it is relatively easy to exploit and can have severe impacts.

Deserialization of untrusted data occurs when an application deserializes untrusted input without properly validating or sanitizing the data first.
