[-] Affected Versions:
Version 1.9.2 and prior versions.
[-] Vulnerability Description:
The vulnerability is caused by the "catalogProductCreate" SOAP API implementation, which is defined into the /app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Model/Product/Api/V2.php script:
User input passed through the "productData" SOAP parameter is not properly validated before being used in a call to the "property_exists()" function at line 125. This can be exploited by attackers with valid API credentials to include and execute arbitrary PHP code (both from local or remote resources) leveraging the Varien_Autoload::autoload() autoloading function. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires the application running on PHP before version 5.4.24 or 5.5.8.
Update to version 188.8.131.52 or apply the SUPEE-6482 patch bundle.
