Hey Shopify community,
During my normal monitoring of my store, I noted some strange strings of text in the "some of your visitors can't find what they're looking for" widget over the past few days.
I don't have a lot of programming background, but to me these seem like they could be attempts at SQL injections to my store or some other sort of malicious intrusion attempt:
"0 xor if now sysdate sleep 12 0 xor z"
"if now sysdate sleep 12 0"
"1 waitfor delay 0 0 12"
We haven't noticed anything unusual and I would imagine Shopify has appropriately sanitized the inputs for customer-facing fields, but I wanted to reach out and see if this was something I need to be more concerned about. Thanks in advance to anyone with input on this!
I was just reading about it on reddit forums by accident. This seems to be probably some weak attack en masse. Shopify engineers for sure secured obvious things like that.
Hi Shopify Community!
Same thing happened in my store in the search widget.
It appears like this " búsqueda waitfor delay 0 0 5"
Do you know if this is an attack? Does my customer's data is protected?
Thank you for your answer.
Did you get an answer about this issue? We are having the same issue, right now.
Does anyone know if this should be a concern and/or what we should do about it?
