An issue has been discovered in Magento Open Source and Magento Commerce that can be used to disclose the URL location of a Magento Admin panel. While there is currently no reason to believe this issue would lead to compromise directly, knowing the URL location could make it easier to automate attacks.

We are aware of similar attacks using these methods. To best protect your store, Magento has released patches and recommends additional security steps to protect your store.

Affected versions

This issue affects Magento Open Source and Magento Commerce (on-premise and cloud) for 2.1.x, 2.2.x, and 2.3.x. Magento 1 merchants are not affected.

Protect your store
