Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to compromise the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to a lack of origin authentication at IPN callback processing function. A remote attacker can replace critical plugin settings (merchant id, secret key etc) with known to him and therefore bypass payment process (eg. spoof order status by manually sending IPN callback request with a valid signature but without real payment) and/or receive all subsequent payments (on behalf of the store).

Mitigation
Install updates from vendor's website.
