Concrete CMS, like any software, is not immune to vulnerabilities. We are pleased to announce that we are sharing our tracker for the Disclosed Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) affecting supported versions of Concrete CMS. The information provided is based on the data available as of today, Dec 15, 2023. Our intention is to keep the list up to date with every Concrete CMS release.

Understanding CVEs:

CVEs are standardized identifiers for vulnerabilities and exposures in software and hardware. They provide a common reference point for security professionals and enable easier information sharing about vulnerabilities across many disparate systems. Scanning tools rely on CVEs to produce their reports. Concrete CMS, being a widely used content management system, is subject to periodic assessments as well as part of the HackerOne bug bounty program. Like any mature project, CVEs are assigned to Concrete CMS to identify security issues that have been identified.

The Vulnerability Landscape:

To keep the Concrete CMS community informed about potential risks, we have compiled a list of CVEs affecting Concrete CMS versions 8 and 9. The Concrete CMS CVE Tracker provides a detailed breakdown of the disclosed vulnerabilities, including their identifiers, descriptions, versions they impact and who should be credited with bringing the vulnerability to the Concrete CMS Security team’s attention. 

It is crucial to stay updated with the latest security updates to mitigate these vulnerabilities effectively. Ensure that you are using the latest version point release of the Concrete CMS version you are using. 

Security is a shared responsibility, and staying informed about potential vulnerabilities is crucial for maintaining a secure online presence. By understanding and addressing the CVEs affecting supported versions of Concrete CMS, users can proactively enhance their website's security and protect their digital assets.

Remember, a well-informed and proactive approach is key to mitigating potential risks effectively. Stay secure, stay updated!
