Over 178K SonicWall firewalls vulnerable to DoS, potential RCE attacks

Security researchers have found over 178,000 SonicWall next-generation firewalls with the management interface exposed online are vulnerable to denial-of-service and potential remote code execution attacks.

“Using BinaryEdge source data, we scanned SonicWall firewalls with management interfaces exposed to the internet and found that 76% are vulnerable to one or both issues,” said Jon Williams, a Senior Security Engineer at Bishop Fox.

More than 500,000 SonicWall firewalls are currently exposed online, with over 328,000 in the United States, according to data from threat monitoring platform Shadowserver.

Last March, SonicWall PSIRT and Mandiant revealed that suspected Chinese hackers installed custom malware on unpatched SonicWall Secure Mobile Access appliances for long-term persistence in cyber-espionage campaigns.

Juniper warns of critical RCE bug in its firewalls and switches.

Sophos backports RCE fix after attacks on unsupported firewalls.
