Hi @KikSiops,

In future, I would ask that you please contact Esri Tech Support directly with possible security vulnerability questions. It is company policy to address these concerns directly with customers to ensure correct and accurate information is communicated. Other reasons: to avoid potential false alarms and to avoid advertising/promoting a potential security issue. 

A good resource to be aware of the the ArcGIS Trust Site:

Hope this helps,
