Progress MOVEit Transfer < 2022.0.9 / 2022.1 < 2022.1.10 / 2023.0 < 2023.0.7 / 2023.1.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (November 2023)

high Nessus Plugin ID 186483


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 2022.0.9, 2022.1 prior to 2022.1.10, 2023.0 prior to 2023.0.7 or 2023.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in Progress Community article 000246898.

- A privilege escalation path associated with group administrators has been identified. It is possible for a group administrator to elevate a group members permissions to the role of an organization administrator. (CVE-2023-6218)

- A reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability has been identified when MOVEit Gateway is used in conjunction with MOVEit Transfer. An attacker could craft a malicious payload targeting the system which comprises a MOVEit Gateway and MOVEit Transfer deployment. If a MOVEit user interacts with the crafted payload, the attacker would be able to execute malicious JavaScript within the context of the victim’s browser. (CVE-2023-6217)

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


Upgrade to Progress MOVEit Transfer version 2022.0.9, 2022.1.10, 2023.0.7, 2023.1.2 or later.
