2019 Vulnerability: A critical vulnerability in SonicWall’s Secure Mobile Access (SMA) and Secure Remote Access (SRA) products was discovered, which could allow attackers to execute arbitrary code and gain control over the affected systems.

These incidents underscore the importance of promptly addressing security vulnerabilities and maintaining up-to-date patches for all network security products.

How Bangladesh Corporates Can Be Compromised

There are more than a million of users compromised by the info stealer and those users’ data sold on the dark web. This includes sensitive information from corporate, financial, government organizations.

Hackers can leverage these stolen credentials in conjunction with the SonicWALL SSL-VPN exploit to access classified information and conduct data breaches. Furthermore, this access can be used to launch ransomware attacks against organizations.

To mitigate these risks, it is crucial for organizations to remain vigilant and continuously monitor their Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems and Security Operations Center (SOC) for any suspicious activity, 24/7.
