Critical Flaws Discovered in Popular Industrial Remote Access Systems

Industrial Control CyberSecurity

Cybersecurity researchers have found critical security flaws in two popular industrial remote access systems that can be exploited to ban access to industrial production floors, hack into company networks, tamper with data, and even steal sensitive business secrets.

The flaws, discovered by Tel Aviv-based OTORIO, were identified in B&R Automation’s SiteManager and GateManager, and MB Connect Line’s mbCONNECT24, two of the popular remote maintenance tools used in automotive, energy, oil & gas, metal, and packaging sectors to connect to industrial assets from anywhere across the world.

Six Flaws in B&R Automation’s SiteManager and GateManager

According to an advisory published by the US Cybersecurity and infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) on Wednesday, successful exploitation of the B&R Automation vulnerabilities could allow for “arbitrary information disclosure, manipulation, and a denial-of-service condition.”

The flaws, ranging from path traversal to improper authentication, impact all versions of SiteManager prior to v9.2.620236042, GateManager 4260, and 9250 before v9.0.20262, and GateManager 8250 prior to v9.2.620236042.
