Problem Description

The extension permits specifying the file extension for uploaded product images. This allows an authenticated admin user to upload a crafted image file with a PHP executable extension, potentially leading to Remote Code Execution (RCE).

The extension does not verify if a specified digital product identifier is authorized for download. This allows an authenticated frontend user to download digital products without completing payment, resulting in an Insecure Direct Object Reference (IDOR) vulnerability.


Updated versions 22.10.10, 23.10.7 and 24.4.2 are available from the TYPO3 extension manager, packagist and at
Users of the extension are advised to update the extension as soon as possible.


Thanks to Norbert Sendetzky for providing updated versions of the extension.
