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 February 8, 2024, Ivanti released an advisory to their customers making them aware of an XML external entity (XXE) injection vulnerability (CVE-2024-22024) in the Ivanti products Ivanti Connect Secure, Ivanti Policy Secure Gateway, and ZTA Gateway. This vulnerability was discovered by Ivanti as a product of their efforts to patch and mitigate multiple vulnerabilities reported on earlier in the year. No signs of known exploitation of this vulnerability in-the-wild (ITW) have been observed or reported on by Ivanti. Due to the haste in which adversaries such as UNC5221 have taken to exploit multiple vulnerabilities previously reported by Ivanti, as well as CISA’s recent Emergency Directive (ED) 24-01, RedLegg recommends that their customers continue to patch and update any affected Ivanti products within their environments as soon as possible. Ivanti notes that “Customers who applied the patch released on 31 January or 1 February, and completed a factory reset of their appliance, do not need to factory reset their appliances again.”
