New Vulnerabilities Disclosed in SonicWall and Fortinet Network Security Products


SonicWall on Wednesday urged customers of Global Management System (GMS) firewall management and Analytics network reporting engine software to apply the latest fixes to secure against a set of 15 security flaws that could be exploited by a threat actor to circumvent authentication and access sensitive information.

Of the 15 shortcomings (tracked from CVE-2023-34123 through CVE-2023-34137), four are rated Critical, four are rated High, and seven are rated Medium in severity. The vulnerabilities were disclosed by NCC Group.

The flaws impact on-premise versions of GMS 9.3.2-SP1 and before and Analytics and before. Fixes are available in versions GMS 9.3.3 and Analytics 2.5.2.
