This update resolves multiple vulnerabilities in Trend Micro InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance (IWSVA) 6.5 in which a remote attacker could potentially attain code execution.
- Remote Command Execution (RCE)
- Privilege Escalation
- Stored Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities
Due to the seriousness of these vulnerabilities, customers are highly encouraged to update to the latest build as soon as possible.
Exploiting these type of vulnerabilities generally require that an attacker has access (physical or remote) to a vulnerable machine. In addition to timely application of patches and updated solutions, customers are also advised to review remote access to critical systems and ensure policies and perimeter security is up-to-date.
These vulnerabilities require authentication on the IWSVA web console.
However, even though an exploit may require several specific conditions to be met, Trend Micro strongly encourages customers to update to the latest builds as soon as possible.
