August 9, SecurityWeek – (International) Vulnerabilites found in several Fortinet products. Vulnerability Lab released the details of several flaws affecting the Web interface of the Fortinet FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer security management and reporting appliances including a vulnerability that can be exploited by a remote attacker with access to a low-privileged user account to inject arbitrary code into the application if a victim clicks on a link or visits a Webpage containing the malicious code, a filter bypass issue, and multiple persistent cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws in the FortiVoice enterprise phone systems that can be exploited by a remote, authenticated attacker, among other security flaws. Fortinet released patches for all of the vulnerabilities and advised users to update their Fortinet product installations. Source

Security researchers from Check Point reported four vulnerabilities, dubbed QuadRooter were affecting the software drivers in Qualcomm chipsets used in over 900 million Android smartphones and tablets and could trigger privilege escalations and gain root access to a device, allowing an attacker to change or remove system-level files, delete or add apps, and access the device’s screen, among other privileges, if any one of the four vulnerabilities is exploited.
