Zyxel warns of critical vulnerabilities in firewall and VPN devices
2023-05-25 13:31

Zyxel is warning customers of two critical-severity vulnerabilities in several of its firewall and VPN products that attackers could leverage without authentication.

CVE-2023-33009: A buffer overflow vulnerability in the notification function in some Zyxel products, allowing an unauthenticated attacker to perform remote code execution or impose DoS conditions.

CVE-2023-33010: A buffer overflow vulnerability in the ID processing function in some Zyxel products, allowing an unauthenticated attacker to perform remote code execution or impose DoS conditions.

Threat actors keep a watchful eye on any critical flaws that impact such devices as they could facilitate easy access to corporate networks.

Last week, cybersecurity researcher Kevin Beaumont reported that a command injection flaw that Zyxel fixed in April is actively exploited and it impacts the same firewall and VPN products as this time.

Last year, CISA published a warning about hackers leveraging a remote code execution flaw in Zyxel firewall and VPN devices, urging system administrators to apply the firmware patches as soon as possible.
