Researchers have revealed information about three new security flaws that affect CODESYS and Festo operational technology (OT) products and could result in source code modification and denial-of-service attacks (DoS).

The researchers stated that these problems “exemplify either an insecure-by-design approach—which was typical at the time the products were launched—where manufacturers include dangerous functions that can be accessed without authentication or a subpar implementation of security controls, such as cryptography.”
