    Microsoft Store Offline After Insecurity Exposed

    Another security embarrassment for M$.

    Quote:
    An online store operated by Microsoft Corp. [NASDAQ: MSFT] for software developers was unavailable today following reports that a security flaw gave visitors the ability to take control of the site, including access of customer data.

    The Microsoft Developer Store, located at http://developerstore.com , used an insecure script to enable users to search for products in a Microsoft SQL database, according to an advisory posted today by an Argentinean security researcher to an online security mailing list.

    As a result of the vulnerability, malicious users could have caused the Microsoft server to execute any command, according to the message posted to Vuln-Dev by Cesar Cerrudo.
