[-] Affected Versions:  
Version 2.2.0 is affected, and prior versions are likely affected too.  
[-] Vulnerabilities Description:  
Vulnerable component is switching to another tab. To exploit  
vulnerability, an attacker may send a POST request (with  
application/x-www-form-urlencoded content-type) to AJAX endpoint  
(usually "/index.php") with "is_ajax_listing_tabs" parameter set to  
"1" and "setting" parameter containing a PHP-serialized object,  
which would be deserialized at server-side. Gadget-chains based on PHP  
server-side code can be used to gain remote code execution, file  
write, DOS, etc.  
So Listing Tabs is an Opencart plugin, so the Opencart PHP classes are  
available in webapp lifecycle. In source code of Opencart there is a PHP  
gadget-chain which allows to write a file to the server.  
Using this gadget, an attacker can write .php files with PHP code inside  
app's web root and then execute it via requesting them, thus gaining  
remote code  
execution, which makes insecure deserialization in So Listing Tabs  
especially dangerous. Ability to write files can also be used to DOS the  
system by writing large files and exhausting disk space, it can be used to  
perform XSS attacks by creating HTML files inside web root.  
Here is an example of request which will write PHP file on server  
in /tmp directory:  
POST /index.php HTTP/2  
Content-Length: 3870  
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8
