Fortinet plugs critical security hole in FortiNAC, with a PoC incoming (CVE-2022-39952)

Fortinet has dropped fixes for 40 vulnerabilities in a variety of its products, including two critical vulnerabilities affecting its FortiNAC and FortiWeb solutions.

Since cyberattackers love to exploit vulnerabilities in Fortinet enterprise solutions and a PoC exploit for CVE-2022-39952 is expected to be released soon, admins are advised to get a move on patching.

It has been fixed in FortiNAC version 9.4.1 or above, 9.2.6 or above, 9.1.8 or above, and 7.2.0 or above.

It has been fixed in FortiWeb version 7.0.0 or above, 6.3.17 or above, 6.2.7 or above, 6.1.3 or above, and 6.0.8 or above.

Both vulnerabilities have been unarthed by members of the Fortinet Product Security team, but the company did not mention why it took so long to push fixes for the latter.

Most of the remaining fixed vulnerabilities have also been found by Fortinet employees, which points to a concerted internal push to pinpoint and fix security weaknesses in the company’s products.
