Fortinet FortiGate < 5.4.11 / 5.6.x < 5.6.8 / 6.x < 6.0.3 RCE (FG-IR-18-230)

high Nessus Plugin ID 124280
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote host is running FortiOS version 5.x prior to 5.4.11, 5.6.x prior to 5.6.8 or 6.x prior to 6.0.3. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability that allows an authenticated, regular user to change the routing settings of the device via connecting to the ZebOS component.


Upgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version 5.4.11, 5.6.8, 6.0.3 or later.
