Veeam urged customers to patch a high-severity Backup Service security vulnerability impacting its Backup & Replication software.
The flaw was reported in mid-February by a security researcher known as Shanigen, and it affects all Veeam Backup & Replication versions.
According to Veeam’s advisory, the root cause behind this flaw is the Veeam.
“If you are not the current manager of your Veeam environment, please forward this email to the proper person.”
It’s important to note that this workaround should only be used in non-distributed Veeam environments since it will also affect the mount servers’ connections to the VBR server.
Veeam says its backup, disaster recovery, and data protection software is being used by over 450,000 customers worldwide, including 82% of Fortune 500 companies and 72% of the ones in the Global 2,000.
