Embedded devices are containing vulnerable IPnet software

FDA, DHS issue fresh warnings on easily exploitable URGENT/11 flaws in medical, SCADA systems, industrial controllers, and other devices. A substantially greater number of real-time operating systems (RTOSes) powering critical medical, industrial, and enterprise devices, are affected by a set of recently discovered security vulnerabilities than were originally reported. Armis, which earlier this year disclosed as many as 11 zero-day bugs in VxWorks RTOS—an OS embedded in over two billion devices—this week described five other similar operating systems that also contain the flaws as well.
