Sophos firewall zero-day abused by hackers

Cyber-security firm Sophos has published an emergency security update on Saturday to patch a zero-day vulnerability in its XG enterprise firewall product that was being abused in the wild by hackers. Sophos said it first learned of the zero-day on late Wednesday, April 22, after it received a report from one of its customers. The customer reported seeing “a suspicious field value visible in the management interface.” After investigating the report, Sophos determined this was an active attack and not an error in its product.
