Critical Zero-Day in Apache OfBiz ERP System Exposes Businesses to Attack


A new zero-day security flaw has been discovered in Apache OfBiz, an open-source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that could be exploited to bypass authentication protections.

The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2023-51467, resides in the login functionality and is the result of an incomplete patch for another critical vulnerability (CVE-2023-49070, CVSS score: 9.8) that was released earlier this month.

“The security measures taken to patch CVE-2023-49070 left the root issue intact and therefore the authentication bypass was still present,” the SonicWall Capture Labs threat research team, which discovered the bug, said in a statement shared with The Hacker News.
