Magento Marketplace Breach Exposes User Details

November 29, 2019 / Phil Muncaster

Users of one of the world’s most popular e-commerce marketplaces have been informed that their account information may have been stolen after a data breach at the firm. The Adobe-owned Magento Marketplace offers thousands of free and premium extensions and themes for users to customize online stores built on the open source platform for e-tailers. However, the Magento team “became aware of” a vulnerability in the marketplace on November 21, according to a brief statement from Jason Woosley, vice-president of commerce product & platform in Adobe’s experience business. “We temporarily took down the Magento Marketplace in order to address the issue. The Marketplace is back online. This issue did not affect the operation of any Magento core products or services,” he continued. “We have notified impacted Magento Marketplace account holders directly.”
