I just patched, here's a quick summary of what's going on:

+                        'note'      => $this->escapeHtml($attribute->getNote()),

Here Magento wraps the $attribute->getNote() in an escapeHtml function, escaping any malicious code which is entered in the note attribute (which can get filled through the admin). In order to abuse this vulnerability, the attacker should have had access to the admin or the database.

+            }
             $data = $this->_filterPostData($data);

This is in the save action for an attribute in the admin. When a source model has been set for the attribute at hand, the entity_type_id value is filled. This is because the entity_type_id is not passed to the controller action through the request since there is no input field for it in the admin.

-            return unserialize($rules);
+            return Mage::helper('core/unserializeArray')->unserialize($rules);
         return array();

This is in the attribute model to get the validation rules for the attribute value. This now uses the Unserialize Parser (in ./lib/Unserialize/Parser.php) which was introduced with SUPEE-8788 v1 (and fixed in SUPEE-8788 v2). This parser strips out null values to make the unserialization process more secure.

These 3 are very low-risk changes so I'm not expecting any issues with this patch whatsoever (unless you missed SUPEE-8788).

  • "When a source model has been set for the attribute at hand, the entity_type_id value is filled." What do you mean by "source model", not the "source_model" property I presume? Whether an attribute has a source_model or not, the the entity_type_id is never passed to the controller action. So it looks like this could be abused to move the attribute to a different entity type. Jun 24, 2020 at 15:52

    "So it looks like this could be abused to move the attribute to a different entity type" Thats exactly what this was. I moved attributes from one entity type to the other to trigger RCE Jun 24, 2020 at 17:28

    One important part, we should not forget is, that the parser does NOT call __unserialize and/or __wakeup (From the docs: "If the variable being unserialized is an object, after successfully reconstructing the object PHP will automatically attempt to call the __unserialize() or __wakeup() methods (if one exists).") php.net/manual/en/function.unserialize.php Jun 29, 2020 at 9:42

Problem #1 with this patch is finding the official download link as Adobe seems to be removing hints of Magento1 from their site.
