US CISA added the following actively exploited flaws to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog:
CVE-2022-47986 (CVSS score: 9.8) – IBM Aspera Faspex Code Execution Vulnerability – A remote attacker can trigger the vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system. The issue is caused by a YAML deserialization issue. Researchers from Shadowserver Fondation confirmed the active exploitation of the vulnerability in the wild.
Researchers from security firm Assetnote published a proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit code early the month.
CVE-2022-41223 (CVSS score: 6.8) – Mitel MiVoice Connect Code Injection Vulnerability – An authenticated attacker with internal network access can trigger the flaw to execute code within the context of the application.
CVE-2022-40765 (CVSS score: 6.8) – The Mitel Edge Gateway component of MiVoice Connect allows an authenticated attacker with internal network access to execute commands within the context of the system.
According to Binding Operational Directive (BOD) 22-01: Reducing the Significant Risk of Known Exploited Vulnerabilities, FCEB agencies have to address the identified vulnerabilities by the due date to protect their networks against attacks exploiting the flaws in the catalog.
Experts recommend also private organizations review the Catalog and address the vulnerabilities in their infrastructure.
CISA orders federal agencies to fix this flaw by March 14, 2023.
