Fortinet Fortigate (FG-IR-23-224)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 197631


Fortinet Firewall is missing one or more security-related updates.


The version of Fortigate installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the FG-IR-23-224 advisory.

- An exposure of sensitive information to an unauthorized actor in Fortinet FortiOS at least version at least 7.4.0 through 7.4.1 and 7.2.0 through 7.2.5 and 7.0.0 through 7.0.15 and 6.4.0 through 6.4.15 allows attacker to information disclosure via HTTP requests. (CVE-2024-23662)

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


Upgrade to Fortigate version 7.2.6 / 7.4.2 or later.
