G4N0K has reported a vulnerability in PayPal eStores, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
The vulnerability is caused due to the "admin/settings.php" script improperly checking for a valid session prior to altering settings. This can be exploited to e.g. change the administrator's password via a specially crafted HTTP POST request to the affected script.
Solution: Restrict access to the "admin/" directory.
