Red-Alert allows unauthorized access
|redalert-gain-access (15088)||High Risk|
Red-Alert could allow a remote attacker to gain unauthorized access. Authentication of the user is tied to the user's source IP address. This allows a remote attacker with the same IP address to access Red-Alert without authenticating.
Upgrade to the latest version of Red-Alert firmware, available to Red-Alert customers from the company where Red-Alert was purchased. See References.
