Storefront

ISSUE:

ability to disable the new NoBot control

SYMPTOM:

Introduced at version 7.0.2, there is a NoBot control which is supposed to prevent attacks of the checkout page by automated robots.  In particular, the control was designed to inhibit the ability to enter multiple gift certificate numbers in quick succession.  Under certain conditions, this feature is triggered when it shouldn't be.  We do not yet know what server environment causes the issue but a message on the checkout page was shown indicating "Bot Activity Detected".

TO FIX:  download patch which includes two updated files to replace ~\ConLib\OnePageCheckout.ascx.cs and ~ConLib\OnePageCheckout.ascx

Download latest Commercebuilder.dll.  See first issue ID 7825 for a link to download and instructions to update.  The CommerceBuilder.DLL may be updated frequently.

After updating the files, edit the "Checkout Page" scriptlet.  Add the new property "DisableBots="false" so your scriptlet would look something like:

[[ConLib:OnePageCheckout DisableBots="false"]]

security

component add-on

ISSUE:

possible exploit using FCKEditor

SYMPTOM:

The WYSIWYG component of FCKeditor allows arbitrary uploads without authentication.  The AbleCommerce code does provide an over-riding authentication so that only admin users can upload.  However, one case has shown a possible, but unverified, exploit in the editor.  To be safe, we are providing the latest version which appears to address the 'undocumented' security issue.  As with all security issues, they should be patched as soon as possible.

TO FIX: download patch which includes the lastest version of FCK editor.

  1. Find the \fckeditor\ folder at the top level of your installation.

  2. Delete the existing fckeditor folder.  If you want to keep a backup, make sure to place the backup in a location that is not accessible by a web browser.

  3. Place the updated "fckeditor" folder from the zipped patch into place.
