Critical security vulnerabilities in Cisco’s Small Business RV Series routers could allow privilege escalation, remote code execution (RCE) with root privileges on the devices and more.
The RV series is a set of affordable VPN appliances that enable remote workers to connect to a company network. They come with built-in firewalls, advanced encryption and authentication features. The critical bugs are part of 15 total vulnerabilities affecting the RV product line that Cisco disclosed this week. Some of the issues are exploitable on their own, while others must be chained together, the networking giant said – but they all could lead to a concerning cornucopia of bad outcomes.
