There have been no confirmed attacks related to these issues to date; However, particular vulnerabilities can potentially be exploited to access customer information or take over administrator sessions. Most of these issues require an attacker first to obtain access to the Admin. As a result, we remind you to take all necessary steps to protect your Admin, including but not limited to these efforts:
Changing the Admin URL no longer throws an exception.
The cart total for a bundle product is calculated correctly when the Product Subselect rule is applied.
Issues related to Adobe Stock sign-out fixed.
