Multiple vulnerabilities in Rockwell Automation’s FactoryTalk View SE equipment may expose sensitive information, or may lead to improper input validation and improper restriction of operations.
Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities may allow a remote authenticated attacker to manipulate data of affected devices.
The affected product does not properly validate input of filenames within a project directory. A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute a crafted file on a remote endpoint that may result in remote code execution (RCE).
After bypassing memory corruption mechanisms found in the operating system, a local, authenticated attacker may corrupt the associated memory space allowing for arbitrary code execution.
A remote, authenticated attacker may be able to utilize certain handlers to interact with the data on the remote endpoint since those handlers do not enforce appropriate permissions.
The affected product discloses the hostnames and file paths for certain files within the system. A remote, authenticated attacker may be able to leverage this information for reconnaissance efforts.
All versions of FactoryTalk View SE are affected.
Rockwell Automation has released new versions of the affected products to mitigate the reported vulnerabilities. Affected users who are not able to apply the latest update should see their security advisory.
