Outbreak Alerts

FortiGuard Outbreak Alerts will be the mechanism for communicating important information to customers and partners. When a cybersecurity incident/attack/event occurs that has large ramifications to the cybersecurity industry and affects numerous organizations, this page will be updated with a link to the individual FortiGuard Outbreak Alert. That Alert will include:

  • An explanation of the attack, its timeline and what specific technology was affected
  • Where applicable patches and/or mitigation recommendations can be found
  • What Fortinet products, if deployed, would break the attack sequence
  • What specific versions those Fortinet products need to be at to provide the protection
  • Threat Hunting tools from Fortinet to help you determine if you were affected
  • Related research from FortiGuard Labs
Due to the insufficient input validation, an attacker can exploit the vulnerability to launch a command injection attack by sending crafted messages with malicious commands.
