What do you need to know?

Tenable Research recently discovered a new remote code execution vulnerability in Schneider Electric’s InduSoft Web Studio and InTouch Machine Edition.

Read TechRepublic’s coverage.

What’s the attack vector?

The vulnerability can be remotely exploited without authentication to execute arbitrary commands on the target system.

What’s the solution?

Schneider Electric has released InduSoft Web Studio v8.1 SP1 and InTouch Machine Edition 2017 v8.1 SP1 to address this vulnerability. Affected users should apply the patches ASAP.
