From The Register:.


A huge security hole has been found in popular ecommerce platform Magento, requiring an immediate update.

Critical cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been found in both versions 1 and 2 of the platform. They can be exploited just by registering with a spiked username or email address – making it an obvious target for automated attack.

The holes can be used to effectively take over a Magento store, putting both user data and credit card data at risk
