Hello Chris,

  • The vulnerability was found on OO Community Edition version.
  • The vulnerability also affects Enterprise versions of OO.
  • The versions affected are all 10.x releases.
  • The vulnerability can be exploited only if authentication is disabled in OO.

The solution to this problem is to upgrade to 10.70.

Please ensure that authentication is enabled in your OO environment.

Thank you.
