It's also a pre-authenticated flaw, meaning it could be exploited without requiring any credentials. Additionally, the California-headquartered company pointed out that the vulnerability can be exploited by an attacker with non-administrative privileges.
The flaw affects Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source 2.4.3-p1 and earlier versions as well as 2.3.7-p2 and earlier versions. Adobe Commerce 2.3.3 and lower are not vulnerable.
"Adobe is aware that CVE-2022-24086 has been exploited in the wild in very limited attacks targeting Adobe Commerce merchants," the company noted in an advisory published February 13, 2022.
The findings come as e-commerce malware and vulnerability detection company Sansec disclosed last week about a Magecart attack that compromised 500 sites running the Magento 1 platform with a credit card skimmer designed to siphon sensitive payment information.
According to a new report published by Microsoft's RiskIQ this month, 165 unique command-and-control servers and skimmer injected URLs used by known Magecart threat actors were detected in January 2022, some of which include compromised, legitimate domains.
