Update Your Shopware Instance to Patch SQL Injection Vulnerability

CVSScvssV3_1: 9.3

Shopware, an open source e-commerce platform, had a vulnerability in its search functionality that allowed SQL injection attacks. The search API aggregates results using parameters passed in the “aggregations” object. However, the “name” field was not sanitized, allowing malicious actors to execute arbitrary SQL queries through timed responses.

SQL injection is a type of injection attack where SQL commands can be inserted into entry fields to gain unauthorized access to data or make changes to the database. By crafting specially crafted queries, an attacker could view sensitive data like payment details or even take control of the underlying database.

The good news is that Shopware has released updates to version that fix this issue. If you are still running an older version between 6.1 to 6.4, you can also install security patches via plugins from Shopware. It is highly recommended to always keep your software updated to the latest versions to protect against known vulnerabilities.

To stay safe, Shopware users should immediately update to the latest version. You should also ensure your web applications follow basic security best practices like input validation and output encoding. Always be vigilant about keeping software updated as new vulnerabilities are discovered regularly.
