Vulnerabilities impacting multiple QNAP operating systems (CVE-2022-27597, CVE-2022-27598)

Two vulnerabilities affecting various QNAP operating systems have been uncovered by Sternum.

These vulnerabilities enable authenticated remote users to access secret values, requiring owners to take immediate action by updating their operating system(s).

Before discovering the vulnerabilities, the researchers ran performance testing and benchmarking on a QNAP TS-230 NAS device.

Unexpectedly, attention shifted to a string of security alerts coming from the system, informing the team about multiple memory access violations that were detected on the device.

Alerts signaled on the system revealed multiple out-of-bound reads and writes by various functions in the device’s firmware.

QNAP is actively resolving the vulnerabilities in QuTScloud and QVP and customers are encouraged to check the product support status to see the latest updates available for their NAS model.
