F5 Releases Quarterly Security Patches to Address 21 Vulnerabilities

Quarterly Security

The quarterly security notification for August 2022 from security and application delivery solutions provider F5 alerts clients to 21 vulnerabilities affecting BIG-IP and other products. Twelve high-severity vulnerabilities, eight medium-severity vulnerabilities, and one low-severity vulnerability have all received separate advisories from the company.

Bypassing security measures, executing arbitrary system commands, resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition, and gaining elevated privileges are all possible uses for the high-severity issues. More than half of them, especially the DoS vulnerabilities, can be used remotely and without authorization. The Traffic Management Microkernel (TMM) component is implicated in several of these vulnerabilities.

The majority of the medium-severity bugs necessitate network access and authentication, but they can also result in DoS, information disclosure, traffic interception, and security bypass.
