Workaround The vulnerability allows for unauthorized viewing and editing of social group pages. The only workaround is to prevent all users, including those authorized, from viewing or editing those pages. If social group pages and their managed pages are contained in a specific area, modify permissions so that no users, except for administrators and the area's moderators, have permission to view or edit the contents of that area.
