About:

RedLegg will occasionally communicate vulnerabilities released outside the usual release schedule to provide additional value to our customers. These emergency bulletins describe vulnerabilities or threats we classify as the highest severity level and warrant out-of-band emergency patching or mitigation action.

Executive Summary

On January 10, 2024, Ivanti released an advisory to their customers making them aware of two vulnerabilities (CVE-2024-21887 and CVE-2023-46805) in the Ivanti products previously sold by Pulse Secure, Ivanti Connect Secure and Ivanti Policy Secure Gateway. Known exploitation of these vulnerabilities has been reported by Volexity to have occurred as early as December 3, 2023. Currently there are no patches for these vulnerabilities, though Ivanti has outlined mitigation techniques that could be used to stave off attacks against these products. Ivanti reports that they expect to make some of the first patches for these vulnerabilities available during the week of January 22nd, 2024, with the latest patch expected to be made available on February 19th, 2024.

If your organization is unable to enact the mitigation techniques outlined by Ivanti, RedLegg advises their customers to remove these products from production until a patch is made available by the vendor.
