The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) has issued an alert about critical vulnerabilities in the Ivanti Connect Secure (ICS) VPN and the Ivanti Policy Secure (IPS) network access control solution. The ACSC reports that an authentication bypass vulnerability in the web component of both solutions allows a remote attacker to access restricted resources by bypassing control checks. Additionally, a command injection vulnerability in web components of ICS and IPS allows an authenticated administrator to send specially crafted requests and execute arbitrary commands on the appliance. Ivanti is aware of active exploitation of these vulnerabilities and is working on releasing patches.

  • The ACSC issued an alert about critical vulnerabilities in the Ivanti Connect Secure (ICS) VPN and the Ivanti Policy Secure (IPS) network access control solution.
