PoC Published for Exploited Check Point VPN Vulnerability

Dear all,

 

Proof-of-concept exploit code for a zero-day arbitrary file read vulnerability in Check Point Security Gateway has been released. Check Point published hotfixes last week to remediate the vulnerability, which affects Security Gateway with IPSec VPN or Mobile Access blades enabled. Check Point’s support page includes a procedure to identify vulnerable gateways. Censys has observed nearly 14,000 Internet-facing devices running the products, but it is not clear how many of these are actually vulnerable. The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) added the vulnerability to its KEV on May 30. Federal Civilian Executive Branch (FCEB) agencies  have until June 20 to address the vulnerability.
