NSA Issues Advisory on VPN Vulnerability Trio

Vulnerabilities with Pulse Secure, Fortinet, and Palo Alto Networks VPNs are called out in the advisory.

The National Security Agency (NSA) this week issued an advisory with remediation steps for recently disclosed vulnerabilities in virtual private network (VPN) products from Palo Alto Networks, Fortinet, and Pulse Secure.

"Multiple Nation State Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) actors have weaponized CVE-2019-11510, CVE-2019-11539, and CVE-2018-13379 to gain access to vulnerable VPN devices," the NSA said in the alert.

NSA cybersecurity advisories are not common: The last such advisory from the agency was issued in June, concerning remote desktop services in legacy Windows versions.
