by Varien (now Magento, a division of eBay) with help from the programmers within the open source community but is now owned
solely by eBay Inc. Magento was built using parts of the Zend Framework. It uses the entity-attribute-value (EAV) database model
to store data. In November 2013, W3Techs estimated that Magento was used by 0.9% of all websites.

Technical Details & Description:
SSRF/XSPA vulnerability has been discovered in the official Magento Commerce online service web-application.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to perform malicious server-side requests to compromise the computer system or to
gain unauthorized access to data or sensitive information. The XSPA & SSRF allows to use the process functionality of the
magento engine as port scanner for the local or any random remote machine in the same network. The issue is the first documented
xspa and ssrf issue in the magento service web-applications.
The security risk of the vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 4.7.
Exploitation of the ssrf/xspa vulnerability requires a privileged web-application user account and no user interaction.
Successful exploitation of the issue can result in web-server or web-application compromise or unauthorized malicious interactions.
