SecurityCenter has recently been discovered to have several vulnerabilities. Two were reported by external parties while the rest were discovered during internal testing.

Details of the issues (with internal IDs for your tracking pleasure):

  • 5 stored XSS that require authentication (31263, 31309, 31283, 31310, 31311) discovered internally by Chris Broome

  • PHP was upgraded to 5.6.28 fixing 4 vulnerabilities, 14 vulnerabilities from 5.6.27, 13 vulnerabilities from 5.6.26, and 19 from 5.6.25 (some of which are covered by IAVM 2016-B-0133)
  • OpenSSL was upgraded to 1.0.2j fixing 1 vulnerability
