This week, the cybersecurity firm Fortinet released patches for a number of critical flaws in its product line, including one in FortiOS and FortiProxy that could result in remote code execution (RCE).
The problem, which has been assigned the tracking number CVE-2023-25610 (CVSS score of 9.3), affects the administrative interface of the affected products and can be used without authentication to execute code or to bring about a denial-of-service (DoS) condition using specially crafted requests. The flaw affects all 6.0 versions, FortiOS versions 6.4.0 through 6.4.11, 6.2.0 through 6.2.12, and versions 7.2.0 through 7.2.3.
