Rockwell Automation has patched three high-severity vulnerabilities in its FactoryTalk View SE HMI software.

Rockwell Automation vulnerabilities

Rockwell Automation this week informed customers that it has patched three high-severity vulnerabilities in its FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) HMI software.

The industrial automation giant has published individual advisories for each of these flaws, all of which were found internally by the company. 

One of them, CVE-2024-37368, has been described as a user authentication issue that can lead to information leakage.

“The vulnerability allows a user from a remote system with FTView to send a packet to the customer’s server to view an HMI project. Due to the lack of proper authentication, this action is allowed without proper authentication verification,” the vendor explained in its advisory.

The second security hole, CVE-2024-37367, has the same description. 

The third FactoryTalk View SE issue, CVE-2024-37369, is a local privilege escalation vulnerability that “allows low-privilege users to edit scripts, bypassing Access Control Lists, and potentially gaining further access within the system”.

The vulnerabilities have been patched with the release of version 14. 

The cybersecurity agency CISA has also published advisories to inform organizations about these FactoryTalk View SE vulnerabilities.

Rockwell this week also told customers about a vulnerability affecting some of its ControlLogix, GuardLogix, and CompactLogix controllers. 

The flaw can cause all affected controllers on the same network to enter a nonrecoverable fault condition by sending specially crafted packets to the mDNS port. 

Rockwell Automation recently issued a security notice urging customers to ensure that their industrial control systems (ICS) are not connected to the internet and exposed to cyber threats.
