Security bug left over 1,000 organizations open to ransomware, device hijacking

Security researchers have discovered two major flaws in FileWave’s endpoint (opens in new tab) management software which could have given threat actors a way to circumvent authentication measures and completely take over the affected devices.

The flaws affected more than 1,100 internet-accessible FileWave management instances, used by large government entities, schools, small businesses, and many other firms. Besides fully taking over the instances, threat actors could have used the backdoor to launch ransomware (opens in new tab) attacks, or steal sensitive data.
