Progress MOVEit Transfer < 2020.0 / 2020.1 / 2021.0 < 2021.0.6 / 2021.1.0 < 2021.1.4 / 2022.0.0 < 2022.0.4 / 2022.1.0 < 2022.1.5 / 2023.0.0 < 2023.0.1 Critical Vulnerability (May 2023)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 176567


An application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Progress MOVEit Transfer, formerly Ipswitch MOVEit DMZ, installed on the remote host is prior to < 2020.0 / 2020.1 / 2021.0 < 2021.0.6, 2021.1.4, 2022.0.4, 2022.1.5, or 2023.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by a SQL injection vulnerability as referenced in Progress Community article 000234532.

- A SQL injection vulnerability has been found in the MOVEit Transfer web application that could allow an un-authenticated attacker to gain unauthorized access to MOVEit Transfer's database. Depending on the database engine being used (MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, or Azure SQL), an attacker may be able to infer information about the structure and contents of the database in addition to executing SQL statements that alter or delete database elements.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Progress MOVEit Transfer version 2021.0.6, 2021.1.4, 2022.0.4, 2022.1.5, 2023.0.1, or later or apply the special patch for version 2020.1.x.
